NAFDA Foodservice CEO, Brad Lee speaks with The Herald Sun about Woolworths’ move to muscle in on the supply of groceries to restaurants, childcare centres and aged-care facilities which threatens the livelihoods of hundreds of food producers and thousands of jobs.
‘We have seen what Woolies have done in retail. They have consolidated brands, They have pushed private label and it would not behave any differently in the out-of-home food sector’ said Brad Lee.
The Independent Food Distributors Association of Australia (IFDA) is calling on the competition watchdog to stop Woolworths expanding into the $13bn-a-year business-to-business grocery sector.
