NZ: 10 bucks for some banoffee pie? Facebook foodies warned to stop selling wares online
TVNZ: Kiwi Facebook users selling food on the social network site – and making hundreds of dollars tax free in the process – are being warned to stop before new regulations come into force this year. The Food Act will require anyone selling food as a business – whether registered or not – to meet food safety requirements. A ONE News investigation has uncovered dozens of sellers who are making hundreds of dollars a week flogging food online – ranging from cake and brownies to chicken burger meals. It’s only advertised on closed group pages that users have to request to join.
