Typhoon Tea set to close Moreton factory which will eliminate 90 jobs

Typhu Tea is set to ax 90 jobs following plans to close its “aging” blending and packing site in Moreton in June.

The company said it was “actively looking” for a new site and to re-employ, but added that it would be at least a year before a suitable location was ready.

“We are actively exploring options for a new site, but it will take some time to identify, fit and prepare a suitable location.

“I want to thank all colleagues who have contributed so much during recent challenging times and we will do everything we can to assist everyone affected by this announcement.
