Bot­tle bat­tle

Sunday Star-Times - - FOCUS A11 OPINION -

BD Arm­strong (Let­ters, Oc­to­ber 1) is ab­so­lutely right about Theo Spier­ings’ ob­scene pay, es­pe­cially when seen against Fon­terra’s lat­est in­no­va­tion (af­ter they forced on us the white bot­tle that no one needed or wanted).

When I opened my new bot­tle of An­chor 2L Lite milk to­day to top up my ce­real, the blue cap felt quite dif­fer­ent from the one I just emp­tied, so I checked it out and saw the new cap is not as high as the one on the old bot­tle.

Ob­vi­ously this is a very big cost sav­ing; is it to help pay the ob­scene $8.3 mil­lion salary to Fon­terra’s big boss or just to pay farm­ers a bit more for their milk?
