Waitrose and the #hake saga

CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS?

I called into Waitrose at Saltash earlier they had some very nice looking Hake loin from South Africa of all places on display, the bloke on the counter reckoned it was a bargain at £15.99 a kilo when I tackled him about it.

All the hard work being done by the likes of Alan Dwan skipper of the Ajax to promote Cornish hake and outfits like Waitrose continue to stab us in the back in our own country.

The question must be asked... aren't there enough starving millions in Africa to eat their own hake? BE VERY INTERESTING TO HEAR FROM ALAN WHAT THE AJAX HAKE IS CURRENTLY MAKING.

I know the fish trade is global but flying hake 10000 miles when the finest quality hake is available in Cornwall at low prices highlights the madness of supermarket supply chains.

CORNISH SHOPPERS PLEASE ALWAYS DEMAND LOCAL PRODUCE IT IS SO EASY IF YOU JUST REFUSE TO BUY ANYTHING IMPORTED WHEN IT IS ACTUALLY AVAILABLE LOCALLY MUCH FRESHER AT A LOWER PRICE.
