OPINION: The company that makes dairy products under “The Collective” brand, and which copped a nearly $500,000 fine for failing to report positive listeria results, is turning to plant-based products as it makes a comeback.
Blaming farmers for the price of milk is wrong when supermarkets are creaming profits, says New Zealand First primary industries spokesperson Richard Prosser.
“We think it’s insulting to farmers to have fresh milk compared with Coca-Cola. Milk is a food taking skill to produce, whereas Coke is just carbonated water packed with sugar,” says Prosser.
Good on your Prosser.
