angry letters to supermarkets
A couple of months ago, tired , frustrated after food shopping , I dashed of a letter which I sent to every MD of the major supermarkets in the country(UK).
The letter invited the MD to come shopping with me ( hopefully during summer hols , so all four kids could 'help'!) and have had some positive feedback.
sainsburys are rather cool. MD has arranged for my local store manager to escort me around shop, and he will give a report back to the MD Justin king.
I will get back to this thread and let you know how it all goes.
I wish the other supermarkets would be more helpful. In fact one has not bothered to reply, so I wont go shopping there in a hurry.
One didnt read my letter and take note of the bit that says 'life threatening' and sent me a letter all about there products for those with food intolerances.
Another said that labeling was out of there hands, and here, have the egg and nut free food lists. ( yeah right , every tried shopping with one of those? what a pile of you know what!)
I plan to send copies of the letters to the anapylaxis camapign, and am asking every one to consider bombarding there local supermarkets with letters,then the buggers cant ignore us!!!
just try it, at the very least getting anger and frustration out on paper has been rather good fun!
