Qld business downcast amid strong earnings

Queensland businesses are less confident about the next 12 months despite enjoying solid sales and revenue.

Some 42 per cent of businesses say sales and revenue rose in the June quarter, according to the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Queensland (CCIQ).

However, their confidence has fallen as rising labour and operating costs continued to eat away profits.

The CCIQ’s Cherie Josephson says half of the businesses surveyed reported a fall in profitability over the quarter.

“We saw a decoupling of business performance and confidence; a significant deterioration of business confidence but solid business performance with similar expectations for the September quarter,” she said.

While businesses’ main concerns are labour and operating costs rising, other factors hitting confidence.

Ms Josephson said rising inflation, interest rates, energy costs as well as supply chain disruptions had dented sentiment.

More than nine in 10 businesses reported rising fuel prices and almost 83 per cent said their insurance costs jumped in the June quarter.

Supply chain and logistics costs increased for 79.4 per cent of firms surveyed.

In the three months to June, electricity, raw materials and stock costs rose for more than 72 per cent of respondents.

“While sales are strengthening, businesses’ ability to grow is being held back by continued rising operating costs,” Ms Josephson said.

“Businesses need certainty about what support they’ll be offered for rising operating costs, including energy, insurance and fuel costs if there was to be any sustained improvement in business confidence over the next 12 months.”

WATCH: The events you don’t want to miss during Week 1 of BLEACH* Festival 2022

BLEACH* Festival has kicked off for 2022, with Gold Coasters able to enjoy 11 days of performances, experiences and fun right across the city.

To launch the event, locals gathered at North Burleigh early on Thursday morning to enjoy First Light –  a 6am sunrise ceremony with dance, fire and song performed by Deline Briscoe, the Yugambeh Aboriginal Dancers and Yugambeh Youth Choir.

This year, BLEACH* Festival will feature around 233 artists, with 94 performances and 36 events to take place until August 21.

With so much on offer, Placemakers* CEO & Artistic Director for Bleach* Rosie Dennis told myGC there were a number of highlights during Week 1 that Gold Coasters don’t want to miss.

Homegrown Opera opens [Thursday night] in the Botanic Gardens. I saw a rehearsal [Wednesday] night, it is absolutely beautiful and will hit you in the heart,” she said.

“Kate Miller-Heidke closes out the first week on Sunday night, that is pretty fabulous as well.”

Ms Dennis said VOLO: Dreams of Flight is a must-see for those visiting the North Burleigh precinct this weekend.

“It’s four virtual reality experiences that you take while you are on a kids swing set, and it is designed on Leonardo da Vinci’s flying machine so it is really super fun.

“For the kids, we have We Built This City, which is 4000 cardboard boxes being made in to a tiny city right here in North Burleigh.”

Bleach* Festival is on from August 11-21. The Gold Coast’s flagship annual arts and cultural celebration will feature four main hubs, including North Burleigh, Gold Coast Regional Botanic Gardens, Miami’s industrial pocket and Mudgeeraba. To see the full program, visit: bleachfestival.com.au/

Starburst

Iconic sweet treat axed from supermarket shelves across Australia

In terrible news for lolly lovers, it’s been revealed the popular Starburst brand will no longer be sold in Australia.

The company that manufactures Starburst, Mars Wrigley, has confirmed the iconic brand has been discounted indefinitely.

The axing includes the most-popular Fruit Chews item as well as Snakes, Babies, and more.

The sweet treats are no longer being imported into the country, with supply chain issues and rising cost pressures to blame.

The brand was discontinued in Australia officially in June 2022.

The revelation comes as people across the country struggled to find the products on supermarket shelves.

The Mars Wrigley company is responsible for manufacturing an array of other iconic treats including M&Ms, Snickers, Maltesers and Skittles.
