For the last few weeks, our local Coles has been selling the worst excuse for broccoli I have ever seen at any Coles for $6.90/kg.
The last time I bought some there, after I had looked at the small amount of unfit for purpose broccoli on display, I asked a staff memeber in Fresh Produce if they had any fresh stock out the back.
He said that they did and would top up the display whilst I did the rest of our shopping, but when I returned I could not see any difference so I asked him.
He said that he had put the rest of the carton out and he had another carton out the back but it was all the same as that is all they had been receiving lately…
I went to another nearby Coles yesterday, and whilst their broccoli was not perfect, it was still vastly superior to what our local Coles has been selling.
I had to call into our local Coles on the way home to get something that my wife forgot and checked out the broccoli which was the same rubbish.
The photo does not do it justice as it actually looks a lot worse than what the photo shows.
It begs the question of why one local Coles is only selling the worst broccoli that I have ever seen at Coles whilst another nearby Coles has reasonable quality broccoli.
Perhaps they are getting discounts to accept the rubbish so as to maximise profits or the other Coles refused to accept the rubbish.
At $6.90/kg it is certainly unacceptable.
Meanwhile Coles website lists broccoli being temporarily unavailable for online orders but at least the photo shows what the product should look like.
Has anyone else noticed sub-standard broccoli at their local Coles?
