“Cut ’em up, don’t cut ’em out”: Message to support strawberry farmers
Farmers have been forced to dump thousands of tonnes of strawberries, as supermarkets stop stocking them in the face of the discovery of sewing needles in the fruit.
3AW Breakfast has jumped on the #smashastrawb bandwagon and scoffed some strawberries for brekky this morning.
“At just $1.60 a punnet there’s no excuse not to buy them, unless you’re allergic!” Mikkayla said.
John Hasan, owner of J & A Hasan Strawberry Farm in Wandin East told Ross and John Victoria’s strawberry season doesn’t start till October, and it’s hoped the same issues don’t affect local growers.
