Careful!

Written by  The Hound

Your old mate sees that Fonterra chief executive Miles Hurrell has criticised small Southland dairy company Mataura Valley Milk for taking the Covid-19 wage subsidy, which the company claimed after choosing not to process Fonterra milk.

Several other meat and dairy companies have also been criticised for taking the subsidy, while still operating in lockdown.

The Fonterra boss claimed his company had not claimed the subsidy at all and Hurrell said he was unsure if Mataura was ‘justified’ in claiming it.

However, the Hound reckons Hurrell should have done a bit of homework before throwing rocks, as information has come to this old mutt that shows Fonterra-owned-and-controlled Allied Pinnacle Pastryhouse Ltd in fact did the wage subsidy.

What’s that they say about those without sin casting stones?
