A company statement released on Monday attributes a reduction in milk supply to the restructure, as well as changed milk collection needs.

The 60 tanker operators set to lose their jobs are based in Koroit, Leongatha, Maffra and Rochester, and the company says changes to rosters as well as voluntary redundancies will be offered initially to minimise the impact on workers.

A number of support roles are also expected to get the axe, something the company says will significantly improve logistics efficiency.

"We are committed to ensuring that we provide any affected employees with appropriate levels of support and the recognition that they deserve during this period of transition," the company said in a statement.

"MG will support employees by providing access to career transition and redeployment services.

"These actions are regrettable but necessary to ensure a strong MG that can deliver sustainable and competitive returns for our suppliers."
