Marmite factory update

BEHIND THE SCENES | Good progress against the odds! - 08/10/12

Repairs to our Christchurch factory are progressing well: the bare structure of the factory building is standing tall, with newly strengthened floors along with interior and exterior walls!

As you’ll see from the photos, it’s taken a lot of work to get it to this point after the demolition earlier this year. Reconstructing our Christchurch factory continues to be a complex project, as repair work continues to meet the new building codes.
We still have some final interior work to complete before the repair and recommissioning of our production line throughout October/November so that the time-honoured craft of making and blending Marmite can begin.
Thank you so much for your loyalty and patience - we really do appreciate it. Thanks also to our hard-working reconstruction team, who’ve been labouring through the cold months of winter, working long hours to get the black gold back in your pantry as soon as possible!

We know the waiting is tough and we are again asking you to understand that there will be a time lapse between the start of production and the availability of product on-shelf. We have not set a back-on-shelf date yet as we anticipate we will have some production hurdles to overcome. As soon as we know when that will be, we will let everyone know via Facebook and the media. We’ll keep you posted.

Check out the photos capturing our progress from March:
