I don’t see how any shopper considering purchasing Maggie Beer products could have been misled. The products are conceived and developed in Maggie Beer’s kitchen in the Barossa Valley. That alone makes the labelling accurate in my view. There is no claim the products are made there.
What a waste of public money.
It surprises me that the ACCC has time and money for this yet no time or money to investigate newsagent claims that they are treated so differently by magazine distributors that it holds back our ability to be competitive against the supermarket duopoly.
Complaints I have heard of being made to the ACCC about this are met with sorry we’re not pursuing the complaint, consider civil action if you think the treatment is unfair from the ACCC. If they researched such complaints thoroughly, they would discover a magazine supply model that gives the supermarket duopoly an extraordinary competitive advantage that could ultimately disadvantage consumers.
Shame on you ACCC.
