US apples in HB?

Talk about taking coals to Newcastle…

I see our local Tukituki MP Craig Foss is living up to his catch cry “Backing the Bay”.  He is more than a little astonished at seeing Northern Hemisphere apples in HB shops.  I know for a fact he is a big fan of free trade but one has to question the common sense of the importers (New Zealand companies by the way) At least one HB supermarket has seen the stupidity.  At least customers can choose because most supermarkets have country of origin labelling (CoOL) for the fresh fruit and veg.
