Ginger Factory tourism manager Brenda Bailey said a new shop fit-out, a new cafe menu and Moreton the train back on the tracks were improvements that would ensure the attraction opened with a bang.

"We couldn't be more thrilled to be opening our doors again," she said.

"We've been busy making the Ginger Factory even better during the closure and we can't wait to share all the changes with everyone."

GINGER COMPANY RECEIVES TAKEOVER OFFER

It comes after Buderim Ginger received a $8.3 million takeover offer for its ginger assets from Global Foods.

The proposed deal includes the Buderim Ginger brands, all land, plant and ginger processing equipment at Yandina and the Ginger Factory tourist attraction, as well as a 1619-hectare macadamia orchard in Hawaii.

Global Foods is mostly owned by businessman ­George Vasili and is also a major shareholder in ­Buderim Ginger with a stake of 15.86 per cent.

Under the proposed offer, Global Foods will offer $8.3 million for the ginger division of Buderim Ginger on a going concern basis subject to necessary adjustments for assumed ­liabilities, employee entitlements and working capital.

The first 200 children through the factory doors on June 27 and 28, will receive a free ice-cream voucher as a welcome back gift.
