Supermarket Monsters: The Price of Coles & Woolworths’ Dominance – Malcolm Knox (2015)
Supermarket Monsters is an enlightening and quite honestly terrifying look into the current grocery industry within Australia, in particular as the title suggests, Coles and Woolworths.
This book is absolutely fantastic. It’s quick, easy to read and gives a good summation of the issues at hand. In a society where it’s easy to close our eyes and ignore what’s going on around us, this book gets to the heart of the matter fast.
This book should be mandatory reading for all grocery buyers in Australia (everyone) as it really states what our consuming is doing to farmers, suppliers and independent grocer owners.
“Like anything too colossal and too ubiquitous to stand back from, Coles and Woolworths almost defy comprehension”
