Ready-to-eat food manufacturer may get buyer soon

Up to 400 jobs are at risk after Australian Convenience Food Group announced that it is in administration. The Knox Leader reports that 90 jobs in Melbourne alone are in doubt.

ACFG, a maker of heat-and-eat meals sold in supermarkets and service stations, was put in voluntary administration on August 28. It operates seven factories in five cities.

Vaughan Strawbridge from administrator Deloitte stated that it could be sold within a week, but would not say anything about the number of jobs that may be shed.

“We've got good interest. It will depend what is in the expression of interests,” he told AAP.

“We won't know if there will be job losses until we conclude the sale-of-business process.”

The Sydney Morning Herald has reported that ACF has been loss-making for the last few years.
