Kimberly-Clark's Millicent Mill is located in South Australia and is the home of our iconic Kleenex and Viva brands, as well as our Professional products.  In 2020 we celebrated 60 years of manufacturing excellence and innovation in Australia. When we first opened, we employed 90 people, today we’re the largest employer in the South-East region with a team of approximately 400 people. In our first year of operations, we produced approximately 4,000 tonnes of toilet paper and tissue. Today, we produce approximately 85,000 tonnes per year. Millicent Mill has been a significant player in the development of the personal care category, with a long-standing history of creating high quality and innovative products.  This includes the creation of sustainable products such as Kleenex Eco  -  Kimberly-Clark's first FSC® certified 100% bamboo product and the first Australian-made 100% bamboo toilet paper product. This new range is also wrapped in paper packaging, which allows our consumers to recycle directly via their local kerbside collection. In addition to the products we make, sustainability and providing better care for a better world are at the core of how we operate. In 2020, we launched our 2030 Sustainability Ambitions which will see us reduce our environmental impact by half. Our biggest goal is to become carbon neutral in our operations and organisation by 2030. Read more about our Sustainability Ambitions here.
