Aussie Biscuits Cooking Again: In a massive development for the local treasure, Aussie Biscuits is up and running again after a COVID enforced lay-off that lasted nearly half a year.
Brett Thompson of Aussie Biscuits was ecstatic to return citing how difficult it had been for many especially participants with a disability during the break. “It was hard for a few of our participants for sure,” he said.
“Unfortunately though due to how dangerous and contagious the virus was we had no choice but to cease production,” Brett said. “I know everyone is over the moon though that we are finally back to normal.”
From 600 biscuits a day back in 1976 through to 35,000 today it is certainly great to see Forbes local treasure back in full swing!
