ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “Small businesses worried over Australia Post’s changes to delivery of perishable items | The Drum” – below is their description.
Australia Post is on the nose in many rural and regional areas this week after announcing they’ll no longer deliver perishable items such as butter, cheese, truffles and small goods from June 30.
The taxpayer-owned business says they made the decision because of the complex food and safety requirements differing across states and territories but producers of gourmet goods say the decision could ruin them.
Rhiannon Druce is the general manager of Junee Liquorice and Chocolate Factory at the New South Wales Riverina which dispatches up to 10,000 parcels in Australia every year.
She says it is not clear if the ban will apply to them.ABC News (Australia) YouTube Channel
