Supermarket slammed over all the junk food promoted at the end of the shopping aisles.
“No wonder we have an obesity epidemic!!”
Jessica Lowe, who runs the Happy Healthy Nutrition Facebook page, said the deals on unhealthy food “frustrated” her.
“I can’t believe the crap that is put on all of the promotional ends!” wrote the nutritionist. “I use to work in retail sales so I know all about promo ends being where consumers shop from and so do the supermarkets, which is exactly why they put high profit items on ends without considering what they are promoting.”
She said she walked around the supermarket before capturing the 15-second video, and couldn’t find a single healthy item at the ends of aisles.
“This is why we have an obesity epidemic in Australia and the world!” she added.
“Seriously I know this is an over the top rant but the supermarket giants need to become a bit more ethical and stop thinking so much about profits- what is life without health!
“The reason these processed foods are on sale with 20% off, 25% or even 50% off is because the food is crap so even when the supermarkets knock the price down by 50% they still make huge profits! It’s not expensive to put processed crap in a box!”
Jessica added, “This is when the next generation can be brain washed and influenced by the supermarket giants and what is on offer without having a second thought!”
Do you get frustrated by the items promoted at the end of shopping aisles?
