We proudly make our Kleenex® Complete Clean toilet tissue right here in Australia at our world-class manufacturing facility in Millicent, South Australia. This is where we also produce our Kleenex® facial tissues and VIVA® paper towel. As the largest employer in the South East region of South Australia, the mill has been an integral part of the community for nearly 60 years, employing over 350 people and contributing to the local economy.
The Millicent Mill has received numerous awards over the years, including the 2014 Banksia Foundation’s Environment Minister’s Award for a Cleaner Environment. This award recognises our contribution towards achieving the objective of a cleaner, healthier, environment and a more resilient sustainable Australia. We won this award as we’ve significantly reduced our carbon emissions and have invested in a $33 million cogeneration facility that produces 100% of the mill’s steam and provides 92% of the mill’s electricity.
Alongside our team at Millicent, we couldn’t produce our Kleenex® Complete Clean without the hard work of our 1,300 employees across Australia and New Zealand, working in our various offices, manufacturing sites, distribution and sales centres. In addition to Millicent, we have another manufacturing facility in Ingleburn, New South Wales, where we make Huggies® Nappies, Nappy-Pants and DryNites.
