Supermarkets in Shetland - prices, ethics and experiences


Recommended Posts

Im not saying I support intensive farming But if it didnt have its place it wouldnt exist as it wouldnt have survived?

I think a good bit of its survival comes from mankinds ability to turn a blind eye to something that's morally wrong (depending on your morals :wink: )... so long as they get what they want.

 

In this case Tesco are turning a blind eye to how their chickens are reared as, especially given the media coverage of late, are their customers that buy them.

 

I agree entirely and to that end if their customers did not supply the demand for said produce they would not stock the item ?

 

So our lobbying friend from the Shetland Times "Stuart Dobson" is going t have t knock on a lot o doors a monday night t pit abody right on their morals !!!!

 

Mind on if he comes be social noo cup a tea and a Chicken Sandwich :)

^ Fine place to go then seeing as Tesco have just significantly reduced their number of stocked lines to make room for all the Halloween/Guy Fawkes/Xmas pointless overpriced tat that ends up in the 'r

^   In this day and age, you should be using the "bags for life" there and not carrier bags.

Well he certainly won't need to come knocking on my door regarding my ETHICS.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, there is no such thing as "cheap food" somebody is paying the price!

If it's not you at the checkout, then it's the farmer/producer/migrant worker.

Do you think if Tesco sells a tin of beans 10p less than anybody else, that Tesco are making 10p less than everybody else on a tin of beans? Come on!

I look forward with interest to what the local suppliers have to say about Tesco in a few months time.

Sounds as if Auld Rasmie still has a vested interest in one of Shetlands local businesses, but we must all remember this..............

local business owners have been driving Mercedes, BMW's and Porches for years plus owning holiday homes abroad, claiming the prices are high in Shetland because of the freight, times are changing, a big thank you to TESCO.

How many of you guys have been at a checkout in the CooP, with, in your shopping basket the DEMON Drink....

lights flash, bells ring and all proceedings come to a standstill ....until.....

the empowered one presses the magic button combination on the cashiers till that allows "PURCHASE PROGRESS"........

answer to the delay would be.......

give the Supervisor a remote control handset to reset the register, result......

faster service, less walking for the Supervisor and more time lent beside the fag counter.
