Teresa Heinz's Fib Feeds the Homeless

Not Teresa, specifically, but her company, Heinz, has been fibbing about the ownership of a company they acquired two years ago, Golden Circle. They have been selling their products labeled as "proudly Australian owned". Tsk. Tsk.
And now, it's going to cost them...

According to the Herald Sun, they've been forced to get rid of over two million pounds of pineapple!

MORE than 800,000 cans of pineapple weighing 1.1 million kilos, filling 50 semitrailers and valued at $3 million are bound for Australia's homeless community thanks to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.


Now there's a watchdog agency with some teeth!

The winners are the poor and destitute, who will now be enjoying the versatile fruit after it was handed over to charity Foodbank Australia last week.

"They said, 'Have we got something for you'!" Foodbank chief executive John Webster said with a laugh.

"There's literally 1000 pallet loads of sliced pineapple, diced pineapple, crushed pineapple, pineapple in sweetened juices, unsweetened juices and also juice by itself.


Just one word for it: Sweet!

  1. Teresa Heinz doesn't own Heinz Food, never has. She doesn't sit on its board, never has. None of her kids do either, never have. So who is the fibber now?

  2. She is a trustee of the Heinz family fortune and owns no stock in Heinz? That would be unusual.
    What is your source for that?
