I wonder what sort of ice cream they all liked.
Me: I like a blueberry concrete ice-cream, very stiff and cold and nice.
Vegemite is owned by Kraft -
Dick Smith offers to buy Vegemite to help out a battling Kraft
After Kraft Foods reported a net earnings profit fall for the fifth straight quarter in a row to $1.1billion, Dick Smith thought he’d help out.
An article in the Australian Financial Review, dated 20 October, referred to a restructuring program that began in January where 6,000 jobs at Kraft were to go and 20 plants were to close down.
It stated that Chief Executive, Roger Deromedi, "is also considering selling some of Kraft’s brands".
Dick Smith said, "Well, I will help Kraft out. I know they must feel really bad that the cigarette company, Philip Morris – the company that kills our kids with their products, owns them. I’d be delighted to buy Vegemite and I’ll be preparing an offer immediately."
"It would be fantastic to have Vegemite back in Australian hands once again."
Dick Smith (he flew a helicopter to the North Pole - I think the real one) has started another type of vegemite- Ozziemite, but he appears to no longer sell it. There is an Aussiemite - but I can not find out who owns it.
I have been thinking on fracking, - maybe swarming but a vigourous swarming like they are all trying to get somewhere fast. Is that not similar to something described in Coot Club - about all the people on the broads?
