Tulgeen’s Social and Australian Disability Enterprise – Tulgeen Packaging Services (TPS) was established in partnership with Bega Cheese, a national and internationally renowned cheese manufacturer. The youngest of our Enterprises, TPS has been operating for eight years.
This partnership was developed around the introduction of a `new product’ by Bega Cheese. This required the packaging of small portions of cheese product into a larger bag. The new product, Shapers is still found on supermarket shelves.
The new partnership grew and with considerable financial assistance from Bega Cheese and funding through the Federal Government’s Regional Partnership Program, a purpose built facility was constructed to house future operations. This facility is licensed by the NSW Food Authority as a dairy processor and is accredited by the Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service (AQIS) to handle export quality product.
TPS operates its own truck undertaking all transport between Bega Cheese and the facility. As a dairy factory, TPS is not licensed to undertake any other food processing.
