What is a Greengrocer?

A greengrocer is a retail trader in fruit and vegetables; that is, in green groceries. Greengrocers' shops were once common in cities, towns and villages but they have been affected by the dominant rise of supermarkets. However many can still be found managing small shops or stores in towns and cities all across Australia. These hard working locals typically handle the entire business of buying, selling, and book-keeping themselves, all so they can have the freshest produce available to their local community

Farmers fight back against Coles and Woolworths

In an attempt to increase their already considerable grip on the Australian fruit and veg market Coles and Woolworths have both brought in celebrity chefs, Coles with HestonBlumenthal, Woolworths with Jamie Oliver. But who is footing the bill for these campaigns?

Farmers are fed up with minimal market margins. Agricultural lobbyists from NSW, Victoria, WA, and Queensland are joining forces to align themselves against the supermarkets with premium pricing power.

Vegetable growers say they are unfairly wearing the cost of Woolworth’s supermarkets using celebrity chef Jamie Oliver to market their produce. Vegetable lobby group AUSVEG, together with independent Senator Nick Xenophon, is asking for the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) to investigate Woolworths.

They say Woolworths is demanding growers from around Australia fund the Jamie Oliver campaign by paying a 40 cents per crate levy on their produce. The supermarket giant says the levy is voluntary, but acting CEO of AUSVEG, William Churchill, doesn't believe Woolworths: “Are growers really signing up or are they being coerced”

What else do Coles and Woolworths sell?

Australia has one of the most concentrated grocery markets in the world. Woolworths and Wesfarmers (owner of Coles) account for almost 80% of supermarket sales, 60% of alcohol retail, 50% of petrol retail and 40% of all retail in Australia. The more market share they have the more influence they have over suppliers and the easier it is to stamp out smaller independent retailers.

Woolworths is Australia’s largest owner of poker machines (11,584 machines) and the largest seller of tobacco and alcohol.

Wesfarmers operates in the areas of retail, coal mining, energy, insurance, chemicals and fertilisers as well as industrial and safety products. It bought Coles Group in 2007 for $22 billion.
