Australian Grocery Giant Fined Over False Advertising

Posted: July 2nd, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: The Organic Gourmet | Tags: , , , , , , | Comments Off on Australian Grocery Giant Fined Over False Advertising

Australian organic retail NewsAustralian supermarket behemoth Coles has paid multiple fines totalling $AU61,200 for allegedly misleading consumers about the origin of some of its fresh produce. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission – ACCC – says Helping Australia Grow signs were hung above imported navel oranges, kiwi fruit, asparagus and almonds.

The ACCC said that the well known – and universally accepted accreditation of locally produced fare – the triangular Australian Grown symbol was also misused. The watchdog said the display gave the impression the imported fruit had been locally grown.

Coles advised the ACCC that the misconduct arose out of the relocation of stock within stores without updating the promotional imagery on the price boards. The ACCC nevertheless considered action was necessary given the importance consumers place on representations of this kind, and the importance of strong compliance processes when choosing to make such claims in the context of a widespread campaign :: Read the full article »»»»

The Organic Gourmet - Kiss Kiss - Reeking What You've Eaten

It’s no secret, I’ve dated a stinker, a wonderfilled woman – full of talent and wit – who had the misfortune of suffering from halitosis, a condition that turned my bog-standard-bipolarized-blond-bird into a slinky-stink-bomb. Brooksy’s condition was initiated by a specific combination of food, give this girl a combo of  garlic and red wine and you’d have to stand five feet away to avoid the pong, no joke, possibly THE most rancid smell my nose has ever been exposed to!

Most of us have had a similar experience, an outwardly gorgeous buddy who turns our nose. So were does the stink come from; diet, perspiration or bad personal hygiene, are we truly what we eat? ::

Alternative medicines like Ayurveda and Homeopathy reckon that toxins in our body – from impure or improperly digested food – can cause our body odour and breath to pong. According to mainstream medicine and science however, the causes of bad body odour are not yet fully understood.

Modern medicine says that bodily smells are caused by numerous factors working in combination, including the chemicals in sweat reacting with bacteria that have made a home on our skin. And while science is busily looking at our diet, conclusions are currently sparse. It’s easy to imagine that what we eat might sneak out through perspiration :: Read the full article »»»»

Posted: November 17th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: The Organic Gourmet | Tags: , , , , , , | Comments Off on Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance Urges Consumers To Buy Local

Food Alliance Urges Aussies To Buy LocalA new blueprint for the nation’s food production is calling for 80 per cent of all Australian food to be sourced and processed within 150 kilometres of consumption.

The Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance – AFSA – represents grass root producers and retailers, organic farmers, market networks, consumer and health groups.

The Alliance has responded abruptly to the governments proposed Food Plan.

AFSA has released a draft People’s Food Plan, emphasising the importance of local production and consumption, and gives the organisations response to the Australian Federal Governments Green Paper, the National Food Plan.

The main argument put forward in AFSAs paper is that the proposed National Food Plan represents a ‘business-as-usual’ plan that suits the needs of big business, major retailers, agribusiness and commodity exporters :: Read the full article »»»»
