Gi­ants squash small play­ers

Townsville Bulletin - - News -

SU­PER­MAR­KET gi­ants Wool­worths and Coles have been ac­cused of push­ing cor­ner shops, milk bars and cafes out of the mar­ket by sell­ing milk at $ 1 a litre. Queens­land Lib­eral MP Scott Buch­holz told par­lia­ment small busi­nesses in his elec­torate had suf­fered a 30 per cent drop in trade since milk be­came avail­able for $ 1 a litre in the big su­per­mar­kets. He said dairy farm­ers were also suf­fer­ing and the nation needed to en­sure big busi­ness did not de­stroy small busi­ness, in­clud­ing dairy farm­ers.
