Pfft, supermarkets. We recently had a safeways built here, and until then all shopping was mainly from local shops unless you visited a roadside supermarket on the outskirts of town on the way home.

Anyway, long story short, it caused most of the independant shops (news agents and the like) in the town centre to go out of business and then failed itself, leaving us with zilch.

That was fun.

They are so powerful in Australia that just recently millions of oranges had to be dumped. Yes that's right 100% ripe & good oranges were just dumped on the grass in the millions simply because our farmers can't produce product as cheap as overseas.
Unlike the US we have no off set by the government to help out our farmers. As such our farming industry is pretty much on borrowed time. Id say within the next decade or 2 that if things don't improve we won't have a farming sector. The Government trys to push it as a completive market, but no first world country can compete with 3rd world exports with out becoming a sacrifice & if we lose our farming industry prices will soar to heaven. Once the domestic market is destroyed overseas sellers have no mercy.

Even though people are willing to pay extra for home grown product the Supermarkets will not buy Australian & when they do they dictate price. Yup if you don't sell cheap enough none of them will buy from you. It's extremely sad to see 5th & 6th generation farmers across the board simply telling there kids to stay away from the farming industry. "There is no future"

This was first reported by Land Line quite a few months back & recently picked up again by ACA. Land Line has been showing segments on the serious situation the ozzy farming industry is facing for at least the last year or more.

I hate supermarkes with passion, i think they should all be burnt down, they arnt usually that close to your home (so for us that cant afford to run a car its a nightmare to do shopping). Customers are insaine, i cant believe how crazy people can go over safing like £2 on a few portions of chicken. Strangest thing is trolly rage (wtf). Well if you hadnt guessed i used to work in one, so im a tad bias, the only local shops you get are Co-op (hate them, buts more cos i bank with them), Spar (hmm) and martins (great) and these arnt small companies anyways.

Believe me, when you're a student, £2 off chicken is critical to your weekly survival.

Agreed, not all of us can afford to spend enormous amounts on food.
