CBH provides infrastrucutre and faiclities to their farmer members at lower cost than fartmers pay in the Eastern States. CBH funds are accrued to maintain the infrastructure for long term. This is counter productive short term thinking - the long term costs of the loss of CBH will be higher than the short term gains just look at the costs in NSW and Qld. There is always some consultant who wants to make a dollar asset stripping co-ops and mutuals to the long term detriment of the community.
Aldi seems to have a policy of purchasing locally in Australia wherever it can in contrast to Woolworths and Coles. Perhaps the way to settle the issue os that there could be a category for producer labels and a category for retailers, however there should still be an a prize for the best overall. The cheese is either the best or its not.
