SYDNEY STORE, SHOSHA, FINED $100,000 FOR SELLING VAPES WITH NICOTINE

A Darlinghurst store has been fined over $100,000 for allegedly selling illegal vape pens that contain a high dose of nicotine. The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has handed Mason Online Pty Ltd, the company that owns the business, a $106,650 fine and eight infringement notices for selling the e-cigarettes.

This is a reminder to all stores that the Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt announced the TGA would make it illegal for individuals to buy nicotine-based vapes from October 1 this year.  Under the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989, vaping products that contain nicotine are prescription-only medicines and cannot be advertised to the Australian public.

FCA MEMBER: AUSTRALIAN FRANCHISEE SURVEY-CLOSING SOON

TSG is a member of the FCA (Franchising Council of Australia), who continue to work hard to protect and strengthen the franchise business model in Australia.

Those of us in franchising know the power for good that franchising is: helping create wealth for franchisees, creating jobs that provide training and career growth, and driving economic output.

However, not everyone understands how franchising works or the contribution it makes.

We want to help franchising achieve more recognition and more support but to do this we need more in-depth data and better information.

That’s why the FCA has launched the first-ever Australian Franchisee Survey designed to collect data from franchisees. This information will help to tell the positive story of franchising, help franchises unlock new opportunities and support franchises through their greatest challenges.

If you can share 4-5 minutes of your time, and havent as yet completed the survey, we strongly encourage you to share your experience by completing the survey here.
