Another gem from Bob Farrand...

...in this month's Fine Food Digest;

Quote:
[In South Africa] We also visited a couple of cheese-makers. One told me how Woolworths listed her extra mature cheese last Christmas. and soon sold out. A month later she received a chunky invoice for the cost of training its staff on how to sell her product. Supermarkets are gangsters globally, not just in the UK.

Did Woolworth's sell cheese?
Rob R

They did in South Africa, apparently.

# Woolworths is an upmarket retail chain in South Africa selling goods of a comparable nature to Marks & Spencer stores in the United Kingdom. The South African company also operates stores in Bahrain, Botswana, Kenya, Lesotho, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Oman, Qatar, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, United Arab Emirates, Zambia and Zimbabwe.[5]

Interesting that its target group/percieved status should be so different in different countries.
