North London Horror Stories: Hampstead Residents Can’t Find Organic Produce
“I HAVE already complained to the manager about the reduction in organic produce,” says Hampstead resident Jenny Anderson of the absence of organic stuff at her Tesco supermarket. “It used to be quite prominent, but I feel they have steadily been withdrawing the high-end organic and good quality foods over the last few months.
“Also the organic stuff they do sell is being hidden away so it’s really hard to find. It feels like they are hiding it away so no one will buy it, and then they can justify not selling it.”
Another resident is missing his organic porridge oats:
“I’m really disappointed about it. The whole fizzy drinks and sandwiches department seems to be expanding more and more. Perhaps that’s how they make their money, but I would imagine there’s a big demand for organic food in Hampstead.”
A spokesman for Tesco replies:
“We aim to offer our local customers the right products to suit their needs in all our stores.”
If the locals don’t get what they want there will nothing else for it: they will have to get the Filipino woman who does the shopping an Oyster Card.
To Brent Cross!
