Pillsbury moves to Manukau


Pillsbury NZ Ltd is the first company to receive money from Manukau City Council’s new business incentive fund.

The fund was established by Council earlier this year to encourage and assist businesses to move into Manukau, or to further expand within Manukau. Pillsbury NZ Ltd was allocated $7,095 which is a reimbursement of their costs to Council for building consent and water and drainage fees.

Previously located in Wellington, Pillsbury NZ Ltd manufactures and markets a range of fresh pasta and pasta sauces for the retail and food service industries under the Frescarini brand. Solid sales growth has triggered the relocation to Manukau, a move which will create up to 40 jobs directly and 75 indirectly. Pillsbury’s presence in Manukau will also benefit local suppliers of raw materials and other support industries.

Mayor Sir Barry Curtis says, “I congratulate Pillsbury NZ Ltd in their decision to relocate to Manukau City. Council believes that a thriving local economy is the key to enhanced living standards for the people of this city. So we are pleased to be able to provide practical means to companies to assist them in bringing their business here.”

Pillsbury’s General Manager, Darren Steele say, “We had to make a tough decision on whether to source our product from an off-shore affiliate or invest in local manufacturing. I am delighted that our wonderful range of Frescarini products is now produced right here in Manukau and we can contribute to the local community. Manukau City Council have shown great support in our decision to move to Manukau.”

Businesses interested in the fund should contact Manukau City Council on 09-262 5471.

There are a lot of good reasons to feel joyful about this outcome. It is what so many young voters – the best hope for the country’s future – wanted.

Far more important than the implications for the Economy Gods ( is the dollar up or down? ) last night’s outcome will also mean many, many vulnerable New Zealanders will have a better life over the next three years at least.

Yet the desire for change was in the majority, across the country..>>>More
