Oneva Holdings is a local business that processes local food to create unique food products. They work with a range of local farmers and chefs to create their products.
Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan today announced new funding for Oneva Holdings to upgrade their manufacturing equipment.
“This funding has been used to purchase a large mixer and depositor, creating a new semi-automatic product line,” Mr Hogan said.
“Oneva is an exciting business that value-adds to local produce and sells it around the world, as well as here in Australia.”
“The new equipment has already delivered efficiency in the production of cheese and pastry products and has provided new capabilities to fast track new product development.”
“Oneva is also trialling a collaborative business model, where they offer incubation services for food entrepreneurs and to help them build up their production capacity.”
“I secured a $150,000 grant a few years back for Oneva to expand their facility, this allowed them to develop a range of non-dairy based ‘cheeses’, creating new local jobs in the process.”
“It was great to drop into the site again to see how much the business has grown.”
The Federal Government has contributed $100,000 towards this project and Oneva Holdings have matched this contribution.
