Bread stocks get a rise out of res­i­dents

Pilbara News - - News - Tom Zaun­mayr

Fresh bread stocks in Tom Price and Parabur­doo have been run­ning “rye” in re­cent weeks be­cause of is­sues get­ting the pro­duce to the in­land towns via plane.

A Coles spokes­woman said the avail­abil­ity of some bread prod­ucts had been tem­po­rar­ily re­duced be­cause of car­riage re­stric­tions on full flights com­ing into Parabur­doo.

“We apol­o­gise to cus­tomers for any in­con­ve­nience and are work­ing with our sup­pli­ers and the air­lines to have our full range of bread avail­able this week,” she said.

Tom Price res­i­dent Wendy Par­ish said the fact this could hap­pen in the 21st cen­tury was “loave-some”.

“I don’t use a lot of bread but I like to have it there for toast, or for mak­ing the hubby’s lunch when he goes to work,” he said.

“It re­ally halves your imag­i­na­tion as to what you can make; I can’t put a sausage in bread or make a sand­wich. It’s frus­trat­ing be­cause, in this day and age, you shouldn’t have to be with­out bread.”

Mrs Par­ish said the lack of fresh bread sup­ply was par­tic­u­larly wor­ry­ing at this time of year be­cause of the amount of tourists in the area.
