Greedier’s Divest

Ingestors, surely?

Farm Fiction

“70% of adults objected to using fictitious farm brands and only wanted genuine places and farm names on packaging.” https://www.soilassociation.org/news/2017/august/morrisons-moves-away-from-fake-farm-labels/

Fake food within the packaging is apparently totally acceptable.

Eggsessive

“The German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) says the highest amount of fipronil measured was 1.2mg per kg of egg. It calculates that an adult weighing 65kg (143lb) would be able to eat up to seven eggs within 24 hours and still be within the safe range.
A child weighing 16.15kg (35.6lb) should not eat more than 1.7 contaminated eggs within 24 hours, it said.” https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2017/aug/10/700000-eggs-linked-to-eu-scare-exported-to-britain-watchdog-says

Great way for 16.15kg children to learn decimal fractions and geometry.

Monochocomatic

“Founded in 1991 as a pioneering organic brand, Green & Black’s is famous for its Classic bars, which have ‘organic’ displayed prominently on wrappers under the company’s logo. But the new Velvet Edition dark chocolate bars going on sale in UK supermarkets this month makes no claim to be organic.
The Fairtrade logo has also been ditched as the cocoa beans for the range have been sourced via a certification scheme called Cocoa Life, set up by [US food giant and owner] Mondelēz.” https://www.theguardian.com/business/2017/aug/03/green-blacks-new-uk-chocolate-bar-not-organic-fairtrade

Brown & Grey’s is so much less appetising.

Tuna sauce

“Supporting more sustainable and socially responsible fisheries, particularly those that are small-scale, is an essential part of any sound tuna sourcing policy.” http://www.greenpeace.org.uk/winning-worlds-largest-tuna-company-means-oceans/

Small-scale is defined as less than 2mm – or, in the realm of sound tuna, an octave in a minor key.

Drink Shrink

“Exporters to the UK have been shrinking the size of products such as chocolate bars and fruit juices since the Brexit vote but not reducing the prices they charge British consumers in the shops.” https://www.theguardian.com/money/2017/jun/01/revealed-chocolate-and-drinks-shrink-since-brexit-vote-with-no-price-drop

A possible upside to Brexit: the campaign against obesity and food waste enters a stealth phase.
