The Gloriavale Christian Community has lost a contract to make Moo Chews snacks for children following questions about its employment practices.
Moo Chews NZ announced on its Facebook page that it was looking for a new manufacturer of the milkpowder-based tablets previously made at a Gloriavale factory on the West Coast.
After Stuff revealed Gloriavale’s link to the product, two distributors refused to handle the snacks, and Moo Chews NZ said it had suspended manufacturing at the community’s factory “until we can be totally satisfied with their employment practices”.
