Dunedin’s loss could soon be South Canterbury’s gain

Staff affected by the closure of the Cadbury plant in Dunedin have shown interest in moving north to the Timaru district following the recent Cadbury employment expo. Job opportunities, housing and education were among the topics discussed at the event, held in Dunedin on Saturday.

Aoraki Development was among 50 exhibitors at the expo, ranging from businesses, tertiary institutions and recruitment agencies. Operations manager Di Hay said relocating to the Timaru district appeared to be a realistic and attractive option for many Cadbury staff who will lose their jobs when the Dunedin plant shuts down early next year.
