    I have watched many people try to take on the supermarkets for many years. No1 has ever been able to successfully challenge Coles or Woolies. These 2 supermarkets have the power to own Australia within the next 20 years and their is absolutely nothing any1 can do to stop them from 100% takeover of all products we consume.

    We should be using anti-trust laws to prevent supermarkets from competing directly with their suppliers in the form of house brands.
