    Oh and off off topic

    I came across this old blog from 1997- showing how much was being spent on anti tobacco advertisement (Big ANTZ anyone?) oh P&G is short for proctor and gamble - they are pretty huge investment wise

    TOBACCO TALKS COULD BRING $1 BILLION MEDIA WINDFALL: ANTI-SMOKING BUDGET WOULD RIVAL WHAT P&G SPENDS ON TV
    http://adage.com/article/news/tobacco-talks-bring-1-billion-media-windfall-anti-smoking-budget-rival-p-g-spends-tv/71791/



    a couple of update articles on the matter of how much ANTZ Is worth - Interestingly - its pretty difficult to get proper and outright information on how much any country is spending on anti tobacco advertising and programs- or how this properly stacks up against taxes on cigarettes or potential profit that could be made from vaping and snus wich they are trying so hard to stifle - I would love to see a proper comparison -

    I also find it interesting that to find the answer to such a basic question as how much is spent on anti tobacco - you have to really dig to find the answers

    Yes this is being pushed by Phillip Morris International. I saw an article from the UK on this forum earlier in the week.

    Saw this first thing this morning, but I found it so distressing, I have only just been able to put it out there.

    No Holden's made in Australia is devastating enough but not being able to can our own pineapples is just to much.

    Well it gets them out of their respective countries I guess... The next step is put them all the same boat, and they go from country to country, like that famous garbage scow from the 80's. Whatever happened to that? They probably scuttled it...

    As far as the pineapple situation... Golden circle is no longer Australian owned, there's your problem.

    Golden Circle (the co-op) would have taken all the pineapples, juiced and canned them. Australian families would have cheap pineapple products for years, and the farmers would have a chance to diversify.

    Same as been done with Edgel, Arnotts and other brands that get sold, they always make a complete mess of it.

    At least SA is going to be making violent grumbles again. Menz bought the Hoadleys classic back off Nestle.
