Woolworths need to fire their Mathematicians.
As a Bunch Woolworths Tester I received a sample of Woolworths Middle Bacon for free to test and review.
I think it may be deserving of a Shonky award.
On the pack and prominently located is a Made in Australia from at least 18% Australian ingredients claim and the familiar Made in Australia logo.
However, when you look at the ingredients list, the maths simply don’t add up!
Ingredients: Pork (90%), Water, Cure (Salt, Sugar, Mineral Salts), Antioxidant, Preservative.
If the main ingredient is 90% pork how on earth can Woolworths claim that 18% of the product is Australian?
The fact that Woolworths has a Made in Australia symbol and claim with only 18% Australian content really irks me. This is totally misleading to the consumer and very dishonest on Woolworths’ behalf.
If the product is 90% pork and the Australian ingredients are 18% then you can safely assume that the pork is fully imported, unless of course they are using left over bits from Australian pork???
With Australian ingredient percentage of only 18% the country of origin should be disclosed.
Shame on you Woolworths…
