McCormick is planning to open a new, state-of-the-art, environmentally friendly, multi-purpose head office in Melbourne, Australia. Currently under construction, the facility is scheduled to open early next year.
The new multi-million dollar complex will house McCormick’s new Australian head office, and incorporate a state-of-the-art technical innovation center, a logistics center, and new corporate offices. The world-class facility will serve as McCormick Australia’s innovation and collaboration hub for employees and customers. Over 90 McCormick Australia team members will work at the new location.
The facility boasts a number of features that promote environmental sustainability and food safety, including:
- The use of solar power generation, thermally efficient glass, solar roof panels, and efficient energy systems to ensure the site has minimal impact on the community and environment
- A design to deliver less greenhouse gas emissions, and use less electricity, less water, and less waste to landfill
- A design to meet the FM Global high protection rating, which is higher than the Australian Safety Standards in food safety and quality
