I’ve worked in the Wholesale food trade most of my working life. I am 15 months off 40 years service with the same company, so I’ve seen lots of changes to who owns the food & drink brands we all buy. This great picture has caused some disquiet on social media, rightly so. It is shocking that so few conglomerates own (and determine the price of) our food. In my business? We’re all just trying to outdo each other with; Q: “Who used to own Kleenex Tissues?” A: Kimberley Clarke Q: “Who used to own Skol Lager?” A: Ind Coope Breweries.
I have just come off of the forbidden fruit thread & it got me thinking about foods that I dislike, & was wondering if the Massive have any foods they cannot abide.
FWIIW, there are not many on my list, but the first on the list is Marzipan – vile horrible stuff, Prunes – cannot stand them.
Finally, when I was on my travels during my time in the Royal Navy, I used to enjoy eating & drinking food from whatever country I was in.
In Singapore I sampled the Durian fruit – it has the smell & texture of rotting flesh. In Singapore it is regarded as a great delicacy but it remains the single vilest thing that I have ever eaten. The smell is so powerful, that there are signs at the Metro stations say that they are not allowed on the trains.
Awful beyond belief.
