MORE than 100 workers still employed at the embattled Launceston Tamar Valley Dairy operation had to wait for last week's pay.
A spokesman for administrators Deloitte Restructuring Services said yesterday that the delay in paying workers as promised had been due to a banking glitch.
"It was a technical error, simple as that," the spokesman said.
"It happens sometimes.
"It should have already been rectified, and if not it will happen pretty swiftly."
A first creditors' meeting for Tamar Valley Dairy at the start of the month appointed Glen Kanevsky and Tim Norman as joint administrators.
Mr Kanevsky said at the time that it would be business as usual under the new regime.
"Tamar Valley continues to trade as normal," he said.
"We have communicated with all key stakeholders since our appointment and have received a tremendous level of support from the company's major customers, suppliers and unions representing the employees."
The 17-year-old Launceston-based family business appointed Deloitte as administrators at the end of last month after struggling with mounting debt following its major expansion to a new site two years ago.
It has also taken on a long-term contract with the Coles supermarket chain to supply its own brand yoghurt nationally.
Mr Kanevsky said that discussions were continuing with a number of parties to support the restructure of the business.
"We are also pursuing proposals to either recapitalise or acquire the business," he said.
A second meeting of creditors will be held before the end of the month.
