Watching TT last night supermarkets are asking us customers to pay a food levy to assist the farmers experiencing hardship because of the drought. This is just the supermarkets trying to "Good Bloke" themselves and shift financial responsibilities somewhere else without effecting their profits. Why dont the supermarkets for a start, stop screwing the farmers down in price and pay them more money when purchasing their produce instead of shifting the burden on to us consumers? This would assist the farmers. For example I know Coles pays farmers 40 cents for a litre of milk and then resell it for $2.00 Also if a food levy was introduced and the supermarkets were managing the funds, they would charge money to manage the levy. To me its just another profit scam the supermarkets are trying to pull.
