hubby and I have become quite strict with reading labels on food products lately. Mostly for the ingredients (how much sugar, fat, salt etc etc etc) and to see where the products from. We buy Australian as much as we can and are dismayed to see the growing trend in Coles supermarkets. A lot of brands are being removed from the shelves, mostly to be replaced by Coles brand, which often is not Australian made or Australian produce. Why are we letting this happen? The other week, I needed a tin of pineapple. Coles had 3 different brands, Coles, Dole and another I can’t remember. Dole was the cheapest (who would name their brand ‘Dole’? Doesn’t work for me. Lol) so I put 2 tins in the trolley. Hubby did the usual label read……product of Thailand. 3 brands and not one was Aussie :/ The tins went straight back on the shelf and I went without pineapple!
