MEDIA RELEASE

Rapid Antigen Testing kits to roll out In Petrol and Convenience Stores Nationally from November 1st

27th October 2021

For immediate release
The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) have approved eight testing kits to be sold at retail. Hough Pharma will be one of the main brands being supplied to the Petrol and Convenience Sector with leading independent operators along with major chains 7-Eleven, Ampol & Coles Express rolling them out throughout November.

“The Petrol and Convenience sector, particularly independent groups have been pushing hard for testing kits to be made available as soon as possible” said Theo Foukkare, the CEO of the Australian Associations of Convenience Stores

“Our sector has been operating throughout the pandemic and have seen firsthand the effects that a positive case can have on other staff who have had to isolate for a period of time, which ultimately flows on to disruption in business operations” Mr Foukkare added.

The testing kits will retail in petrol and convenience stores for around $30 for a pack of two. The self test kits deliver a result within 15 minutes for the user.

“By having testing kits readily available to consumers 24/7 in our stores will mean they can get ahead of possibly spreading the virus in their own business or to family or friends which is a big step forward in business recovery and normalising the lives of Australians” Mr Foukkare said.
