    There has been plenty of studies that show organic fruit and veg are no better then the usual produce available. Its just a marketing ploy that has worked surprisingly well. Provided you wash produce its all fine. Just like many people think there are hormones in chicken( there has been none for decades) those who look for information will discover organic versus non organic has little to no benefits. As for taste. I have done comparisons. I suggest others try. I find organic tastes worse for most things,but not admittedly for everything.

    Would be great if consumers had more of a chance to get hold of organic fruits and vegies instead of all this chemicalised rubbish . How can we avoid cancer when the major food chains are pumping us full of chemicals!!!! Time for woolies and coles to back off and let the little guys have a go seriously they are a complete joke we are meant to be about community in Australia and all these major food chains do is force the little guys out and force consumers to buy cheap rubbish unacceptable :)

    its called having 2 companies take over our country. Coles and woolies have ruined all quality of products they sell,we are the only country that has allowed monoply. If they were owned by the government it would be communism,even though there is no difference. Food inflation 130 % in ten years and poor quality. LIquor -wine quality down. Ripping us off in petrol by 30 cents plus. There all crookjs
