11th-Nov-2009 02:32 pm - veg out time.
Has anyone been to Veg Out Time on Chapel St recently and can confirm that they are still there? Google Maps only tells of the one in St.Kilda which worries me as I would like to take a friend to lunch on Chapel St tomorrow.

Failing that, suggestions for good alfresco vegan eats on Chapel St greatly appreciated.

Muchos gracias.

Veg Out Time is still there! Had the nomtastic pumpkin curry. Don't know why it's not on Google maps though. Those guys need a website or something. As if you would make your potential customers CALL you on the TELEPHONE. What is this? The '90s?
Hi folks,

Strange request I know but...

Im wondering if anyone is, or knows of, a baker/cater who could make a fancy vegan cake (or possibly gingerbread) in the shape of a house for the launch of a project that i have been working on?

If anyone has any ideas please feel free to contact me here or at: ash AT ahag DOT org DOT au


10th-Jul-2009 09:02 pm - Yo' momma was acquired by Woolworths.
c is for

Australia’s competition watchdog has today advised that it will not oppose the acquisition of organic supermarket operator Macro Wholefoods by Australia’s largest supermarket operator, Woolworths.

Woolworths announced the proposed takeover of Macro last month and plans to turn all Macro stores into outlets of their upmarket grocery subsidiary - Thomas Dux*. They will also acquire ownership of the Macro Organic private label brand.


“Organic products are only a small component of the range in Thomas Dux stores and make up less than one per cent of sales in Woolworths’ full-range supermarkets; their closest competitors are other supermarkets,” acting ACCC Chairman, Mr Peter Kell, explained.”In contrast, Macro focuses almost entirely on organic products. It is less competitive on price, instead emphasising range, quality, service, location and convenience. The ACCC’s extensive inquiries found Macro’s closest competitors to be smaller, independent retailers with a similar focus. These competitors will remain in the market after the acquisition, continuing to provide consumers with choice.”

* The Thomas Dux Grocer store format was first introduced last year by Woolworths to compete with the proliferation of upmarket grocers. There are currently two in operation, with the outlets smaller than the retailer’s conventional supermarkets and offering more premium groceries.
