GET THOSE CRUMBY HANDS OFF OF THE COUNTER AND OUT OF THE COOKIE CAN!

Campbell soup company, an American-owned, multi-national, Food Company has had full ownership of biscuit-icons, Arnott’s since 1997. This month, history repeats itself once more as Campbell's are passing the tin to, drumroll please, yet another overseas company! Kohlberg Kravis Roberts (KKR) are purchasing the company but aren’t expected to hold on to the brand for too long.

Apparently, they also plan to discontinue many of our beloved bikkies. News has it our: 

·         Delta Cream, 

·         Milk Arrowroots, 

·         Chocolate Ripple,

·         Marie, 

·         Milk coffee, 

·         Orange slices, 

·         Nice,

·         and Teddy Bear

Biscuits are all on the hit-list. While we aren’t yet sure on what’s confirmed to go, shouldn’t we try to prevent it from happening whatsoever?

 

Why is this happening?

As a way of increasing the company’s (KKR) value and profits, production needs to be cheap, and despite companies loving to use a bit of underpaid labour, to lower these costs, it’s much more likely to be biscuits off the menu for the new Arnott’s owners. It’s suspected they will purchase Arnott’s, run down production costs (throw out the biscuit tin), and resell at a profit. As listed before, many of the “niche biscuits” will be grinded up to pave profit’s way. Sorry Baby-Boomers, teething-toddlers, tea and coffee enthusiasts, you’re at a loss here.

*not saying there's a name-change here - it's just us saying Arnott's isn't the same under KKR's ownership.

 

So, what are we trying to achieve through this petition?

We’re hoping that this petition can act as a fair representation of the public outrage Australians are sure to express. If money is the issue at hand, then we need to show just how many consumers won’t be purchasing from KKR-Arnott's* without the faves being available. 

So put em’ back on the shelves!

Bite with all the might you can and snap this biscuit bull#%@$ apart.

May they be dunked into a hot cuppa or a Milo drink so that we can live in peace forevermore.
