Santrev Set to Build Country's Largest Free-range Facility

1 November 2013, at 4:39pm

AUSTRALIA - Santrev is set set to build the largest free-range facility in Australia after the Mid Murray Development Assessment Panel approved plans for the state-of-the-art farm near Blanchetown.

The development application for the Inghams project was considered by a special panel, who were satisfied that he development would be safe and sustainable despite earlier concerns, giving the 1,200-hectare, $34-million project the go ahead.

The facility will be at the forefront of world free range design and technology and is yet another standout enterprise for the Santrev team. Following their success delivering the Hamley Bridge Inghams farm, Santrev are keen to prove themselves with another full turn-key facility.

Santrev Director Luke Trevanion says the company is ready to take on the venture.

“Everyone on the Santrev team is eager to start in Blanchetown; the project will be fully Santrev designed so we are keen to get on with it and show once again the quality of a Santrev built poultry shed,” he said.

Mid Murray Council Mayor Dave Burgess says it is an exciting development for the region.

"I've often wondered why people haven't connected to the area of Blanchetown for industry or other developments, sitting on those highways, I think there's one set of traffic lights they've got to get through getting from the farm to the processing plant," he said.

Councillor Burgess also says the project will be a huge boost for the local economy. "I think it's a great prospect for our region," he said.

The Blanchetown project will be the second collaboration between Inghams and Santrev, with the completion of the South Australian Hamley Bridge breeder facility last year. “We’re proud to be building another major project for Inghams again and hope to continue building for them in the future,” says Luke. “I think it’s a good testament to the services we provide not only to Inghams but to all growers Australia-wide.”
