the papers recently did an anlysis of where the increase in cost went – they couldn’t get an answer from the supermarket chains (funnily enough). Witn a duopoly controlling the retail side they are taking the opportunity to increase their margins. Funnily, when I did the shopping last week, I saw a $2 difference in 500g butter between two brands (Mainland and Fernleaf – both Fonterra?) so saved a bit that way.

Sorry… all I can say in my defence is that it’s late
