More kombucha on the way in Dandenong

Published: 10 October 2022

Australia’s largest kombucha maker Remedy Drinks has opened a new facility, housing the company’s research and development, manufacturing, warehousing and distribution operations.

The company has combined all its operations into the new 18,000 square metre site – the same size as the MCG football field – and will create 87 new local jobs.

With the fermented tea drink growing in popularity around the world, the move will boost the company’s production and exports to the United States, Canada, United Kingdom and Asia.

Remedy Drinks produces one of the world’s only kombucha drinks that can be stored at room temperature without needing refrigeration, reducing energy use and transport costs.

Victoria has the largest and most established food and beverage manufacturing sector in the nation, valued at around $38 billion and employing around 72,000 people.
