I work at Edgells(Simplot) food.The LAST producer of aussie grown vegies.Make Chiko rolls,corn jacks,stir-fry meals,oven roast vegies,corn,tinned food,etc.
Found out yesterday that plant will close after next corn season(this time next year).
Bottom line...........Aussie economy,can't compete with cheap asian imports.So much for ''buy Australian.''
about 200 jobs gone
''restructure'' is just another term for ''redundant''.

when Mrs dd & I ( well mainly her ) go shopping always try to check tinned tomatoes etc for origin. ALWAYS try to buy the local produce if available, unfortunately the sales practices of the majors means that isnt always so.
