  • Australian Produce

    Its already begun sooner than I expected.

    A private equity group specialising in China-focused agricultural exports has taken over Capilano Ltd and turned it into a private company.
    Because Capilano Ltd will now make a fortune for its shareholders selling premium Australian honey to China and be free to operate without the ASX monitoring its corporate behaviour.
    The company is transforming into a honey marketing vehicle focused on upper middle class Chinese customers who can’t get enough of our pure natural resources.
    Ben McKee from Capilano Ltd has assured Chinese consumers that Capilano Ltd will only ever sell Australian honey to the Chinese but has not given a guarantee to Australian consumers that his company will not sell Australians honey blended with foreign honey.



    Most of the frozen produce is "packed in NZ" which means it originates, most likely, from China.

    Does anybody know where to buy Australian grown nuts? Does Australia even grow nuts?

    The stuff sold at Potato house has no country of origin so makes me assume the worse.

    Australia produces 40,000 to 45,000 tonnes of peanuts per year, 95% of which comes from Queensland.

    Thanks Google.

      Capilano...just gave me a $2.5K Xmas pressy... I would rather have stayed as a supporter/shareholder.... 'cause the price was gonna skyrocket since China thinks we have the best honey in the entire world...with little or no hype or pretense.

      ( we actually do due to climate and air quality) and as thatSick said it is lost now due to the takeover. we can still buy it from the shops but can't participate in the ASX/Share growth/value.

      From what I read from Capilano was they had no protection from OS poachers/buyers from the Government and had no choice but to accept the offer of international support from the current owners.

        Interesting shit in the honey trade industry... Netflix docco I watched went a bit into it... aparently it's quite common to 'fake' where honey originates and all that jazz.

          Yes Australia does grow nuts, they're available from the nutshell.com.au
          Peanuts are not actually nuts, they're legumes. Macadamia nuts are native to Queensland but it is the Hawaians who first grew them commercially. Australia is a significant Almond producer and also produces Walnuts.

            my Woolies mixed nut container says;

            packed in Australia from at least 32% Australian ingredients.


            Meat and in season fruit/veg generally speaking are Australian grown.
            Market grocers are are better for local fresh produce but you do pay more.

                Buy your honey from family owned West Coast Honey and you'll be certain you are buying our local product.

                4th generation beekeepers based in Gingin, they do not export. Worth a ride to Gingin Brook Road for a honey icecream.

                  Well this country has always sold its produce/minerals/and almost all other natural resouces to any takers....take the current lithium mine....a Chinese company. No doubt we will export the stuff then end up buying the value added product back from them. The only winners are the big corporate bosses/owners who pocket the profit, pay almost no taxes and the slimy politicians who live for today and fuck tommorrow then crow about how good they have performed.

                    Aussies are our own worst enemy.

                    We want it cheap but wont get out of bed for less than $250/day and plenty of holidays, sickies and RDO's. If someone does have a go we hang shit on them until they go belly up then say "told ya' so" as they want a bit extra for their produce to cover costs and fuck that, Aldi sells it 0.50c cheaper.

                    Then we carry on about foreign companies buying us out. Newsflash, they are Aussies selling out because no fucker in this country wants to take a risk and work hard. If the gubmint tries to step in the right wingers chuck a tanty because private enterprise does it better apparently.

                    Seriously lets change the name of Prime Minister to "Head of the Kindy."

                        Well actually it seems that calling people cnuts is more acceptable than a reasoned argument.

                        I don't get it but that may just be the spectrum kicking in.

                            IMO people like Gina should bank roll the lithum mine and if her and her ilk dont want to then they should be forced...they have made hundreds of millions selling AU to all and sundry....time for some payback....and before the liars....err lawyers get involved change the fucking law.

                              and where's all the fresh produce going lately ?
                              last couple of years fruit especially has been low quality high price, veg is not much better.
                              National pride should not be a crime!.
