Product from Aust /N.Z. ??

Postby ozchick » Sat, 15 May 2010 6:01 pm

Carrots today at Fairprice Novena Square.
Labeled origin on bag as Aust / N.Z. :???:
Que? So....er which one is it?
Have those 2 countries been drifting closer together while I've been away? When I left there, one could definitely not have swum from one to the other. Mm....It's that Kevin Rudd dude. They should never have voted him in. He's gone and messed with the land-masses! :wink:

Very likely would NZ. Product there are cheaper.

IN Oz, product made (or grown) in NZ are cheaper than Oz made product.

I like Kev. I think he has done a good job so far. Not perfect but more sincere than the previous government. Don't flame me.!!! Just a personal opinion from one who is living in down under.
I work to live and not live to work.
