The Japanese will pay bonkers money for the the right veg/fruit presented to within an inch of its life.. Funny how even with 50m turnover never heard of them. Pretty sure the UK could build up the small specialist farm / market garden model massively from where we are now but it is one model that never did well or was actively discouraged via the CAP.

Chinese market probably huge too in the future.

I used to buy some of their stuff from Arjuna in Cambridge - possibly the most painfully right-on enclave of hair-shirt wholefoodism on the entire planet - and it's pretty good quality.

Well, remove all the junk. Get rid of over paid management, using the saved money for better quality ... bungo, good product.

The rrverse of this is happening eith Kraft/Cadbury at the mo. Cutting quality to service debt and management cost.

I reckon the best way to become a millionaire is to get a small boat, go to the middle of the Atlantic, and catch a great big fuck off tuna.

Then quickly freeze it down and sell it to the Japanese.

No a talking horse is much better than a talking woman. My grandad used to take the horse for new shoes and then spend a few pints in the pub. Even though he got completely bladdered, the horse knew the way home!

Clarkes or startrite?  

I had a mate with a dog years ago when dogs were allowed to roam freely.  It was a 20 minute walk from his house to work and his dog turned up every day to meet him from work

The Clarkes mascot was actually a horse! Sadly these shoes of which I had many as a young lad, are no longer made in Somerset, and are shit!

I didn't know that.  Yep, agree not like they once were.  I thought somewhere in the midlands was the shoemaking centre of England. 

Acquick google says it was Northampton https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2002/nov/01/shopping.fashion

a relative of mine, according to a genealogist was a cordwainer

The food is pretty nice actually, the sauces are full of flavour, not thin like supermarket stuff - and more importantly don't have shitloads of processed sugars in them.  They also make some nice alternatives to wheat-based pasta, all good in my book.  Their stuff may be slightly more expensive that the equivalent in a supermarket - but that's the point, if you eat better quality and don't pick up the extra packet of processed shit you'll feel better.

Normally pick up their stuff in Unicorn in chorlton, manc - you can feel the fucking worthiness seeping out the place like some oozing aura.  The overwhelming feel of SJW self righteousness always amuses me.  I remember back in the 90s tyring to pay with a Natwest switch debit card (they were boycotting Natwest at the time I believe), they refused to take my payment at the till - I got really fucking pissed off with this shit so just looked at the douche cashier in disbelief, told them to fuck off and walked off leaving everythign there.

I should go in there with a peppe frog tshirt on or a MAGA baseball cap just to troll the fuckers and see if anything happens. Nobody will have the guts to do anything as with most of these types they're cowards.

Why are you posting about food on a thread about shoes.

 

Oh, wait a minute...  xD
