What I find the most dispicable, is the brand names who are obviously taking prime advantage of the media reports and increasing the price of thier goods to increase profits!!
If the non-brand name goods arnt increasing there is no reason why they brand names, whose goods are already massively overpriced to the point of being a rip off, should be increasing!!
True, brand name food already takes advantage and to again raise thier prices is disgusting.
I used to work on the Jacobs biscuit factory in Liverpool and what i found out while i was there was astonishing...
Brand name Jacobs actually make the biscuits, crackers and cheese sandwiches for sainsburys, tescos and the like.
So in theory the people that prefer to buy the `brand named` products are actually wasting money.
You buy sainsburys `own` and what your actually getting is a `brand named` product with a cheaper name and shabby designed packet.
So the people that say "ewww i wouldn`t buy or eat that crap" are actually eating (in their eyes) `the crap cheap stuff`.
Now you know, buying own brands makes sence
(Just don`t buy own branded tea or coffee
