The Mercury: Huon food icon in a jam [27jul05]

CASH-FLOW problems and a senior management bust-up have put a 170-year-old Huonville food business on the brink of collapse.

Staff at Dorans Fine Foods say they have not been paid and fear for their jobs.

General manager Mike Swinburne said the business had several major potential customers, including the Marriott hotel chain.

But he said the company had been starved of working capital by owner Philip Ridyard, of Launceston.

"We have not been able to buy bottles, jars and fruit or pay staff since mid-June," Mr Swinburne said.
