SPC announced a few days ago that they were slashing the amount of fruit bought off local farmers due to too many people these days buying imported goods. (Major paraphrase, but that is what it boils down to)
Do you make the effort to buy Australian grown and made foods from the supermarket? And what about other goods and services- is buying home grown important to you, or does it boil down to price.
For me, whilst I love a good bargain, my fruit, veg and canned goods (fruits, tomatoes, corn, beetroot etc) is all aus grown. Oh, meat too. Actually, I prefer all my food to be Australian now I think about it- rice, dairy etc too.
Outside of the supermarket I am less picky- I'm quite sure a lot of the clothes we wear are made overseas, and a lot of our household goods... But I live in a part of aus that produces a rather large amount of food that you see on your supermarket shelves, so maybe we are aware of that more so than others...?
Interested to hear your views and opinions on this topic, and whether or not you like buying imported goods (ESP food) etc.
