I have been advised that if you have any questions in relation to what is happening with Darrell Lea, the best place to look is here
It appears that there are many companies that have expressed interest in buying Darrell Lea. I know some newsagents were thinking seriously of newsagents making a bid. If so, they will have to move quickly partly as Darrell Lea is running out of money, and I doubt the administrators will be prepared to wait long. In my experience, administrator's interest tends to last only as long as the money is there.
On the plus side, it does appear that Darrell Lea sales have skyrocketed to 400%. People are queuing up to buy it. I know I was one of them. Clearly, the public wants Darrell Lea products.
