Recently I grabbed some canned fruit at Aldis and it is not my favourite food and later I noticed how pale were the chopped scraps of fruit containing 40% fruit juice and was made in China and the brand name was Sweet Valley (sic). Remember our Goulbourn Valley brand?
Australian fruit and processes are much more preferable than imports. The food miles from Chine are absurd and unsustainable. I won't buy such as that till forced.
All the same, the space for real food, such as canned fruit, has shrunk on the shelves. Dinky little tubs of fruit are the go.
All wise, all modern woman at the supermart happened to be praising the said tubs of fruit as the best thing since sliced bread for her children. Better choice than some the processed fruit contains sugar in the sweetend fruit, is 40% juice and has packaging and shipping.
We don't want to lose the ability to eat a piece of fresh fruit which is a more complex food and is a healthy choice. We can't become too helpless and lacking fibre to manage a piece of fruit! The experts promote fruit and vegies for health - it is so easy. Nevertheless, there are those who manage without eating fruit and vegies. They must be the exception.
Australian fruit industry needs support now.

For Australia DAY 2014 and the birthplace of European settlement: Botany Bay. Two runways of Sydney Airport extend into the bay and a succession of early flights touch down after the longest of hauls. 'Straya DayArrivals. The indicator keeps repeating 'flight delayed'. No, it won't be the travellers emerging in winter clothes and coats nor the warm designer outdoor gear. Activity stops. Next a crowd from an Asian country and cabin crew women extremely slender and in delightful long outfits. What's next?. A crowd totting trailer sized snow boards. Then some with Muslim scarfs
|Welcome to Straya.|

Nature and a polar vortex brings life threatening cold to some and at the same time life threatening heat wave to our western state. Enjoy nature while you can. Abbott government is most interested in big business and letting them off the hook as regards carbon pollution. So called progress at the expense of global survival.
