Aussie Made: Scare Tactics Or Crucial Information About Our Food?

aussie made asks why you don’t think about what’s in your food

Did you see the Aussie Made expose about what we’re really getting in our imported foods?

According to Aussie Made, if you’re not buying Australian Grown food then you just don’t know what you’re getting and you possibly don’t care about your own or your family’s wellbeing.

The consumer and business site, which claims to have been helping shoppers, businesses and indeed Australia for 25 years, yesterday launched a major attack on imported foods, quoting Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service (AQIS) testing results on imported foods. And if a picture can tell 1000 words, then the images on the Aussie Grown website must have an entire book behind them –

"Australian Grown""Australian Made"

The Aussie Made website states the following:

“Unfortunately, AQIS only tests around 5% of the produce coming into Australia, which means the other 95% is tested by, well, shoppers like you and me. If that alone isn’t food for thought, try this. We buy more than 5.5 billion dollars worth of imported food every year. That’s billions of dollars that isn’t going to our farmers and their local communities.

So what can you do? The simple answer is buy Australian grown produce when you can. It’s better for you, your family and our farmers.”

The message, apparently, is simple –

"aussie made food"is aussie made just trying to scare us (and do we care if they are)?

Well I guess you could ask what Aussie Made has to gain by revealing this information. As they say, this is just the facts – and not even all of them. Perhaps I’m a little naive, but the primary answer seems to be encouraging us to support Australian food and farming. Which is surely not a terrible thing?

The flipside, of course, as comedian Dave Hughes asked last night on The 7pm Project, is the question of how we would feel if other countries decided to stop buying from Australia. And considering the billions of dollars worth of food exported each year, we probably wouldn’t feel so great. Aussie Made has a simple answer for this one – unlike other countries, the standards of our food production are so high that should other countries put us to the test, we would pass with flying colours.

the real question: is aussie made all we should be considering?

I completely agree with Aussie Made that we should at least stop to think about the food we buy. Consider where it’s come from and what standards of growing and processing it’s been subject to. And if you are in fact someone who thinks about what they buy, rather than just gravitating to the brightest and shiniest goodies on the grocery shelf, then surely this begs the question of whether Aussie Made is, in fact, all we should be looking for.

Issues of food miles, possible contamination from strange overseas beasties, and supporting the Aussie battler farmers aside, one of the most important questions to ask about your food is, quite simply, what it has to offer you.

(more) food for thought

  • Is it organically grown and farmed?
  • Has it been sprayed with all sorts of ‘approved’ yet questionable pesticides, herbicides and fungicides?
  • Does it contain additives/non-foods?
  • Has it been kept in storage for months (or longer), sprayed and flavoured and otherwise injected to make it look and feel good?
  • Is it seasonal?
  • Would you have access to this food in nature; is it a ‘real’ food?
  • If it’s seafood, has it been sustainable fished?
  • If it’s meat, is it grass-fed? 100% free range?

My take?

Aussie Made is a great start, and I’m all for supporting local trade. But the truth is that once you start thinking, you just can’t stop, can you? And when it comes to what you put in your mouth there’s a heck of a lot to get you thinking.

I HAVE SOME BIG NEWS TO SHARE!

As of today, I’m opening up the doors to my Inner Circle, my 12 month private client mastermind.

This is THE most badass high level mastermind in the world for women who want it all – and are prepared to do what it takes to get it! Really what we’re talking about is being prepared to be the PERSON.

And that’s what I do. I help you remember ALL that you were, and then become it. ALL Of it.

This is my highest level private mentoring circle. The exact place where I have personally mentored dozens of this industry’s most elite female entrepreneurs to break income barriers ranging from 10k months to multiple 7 FIGURE months, and everything in between. But more importantly than that – to become who and what they always were.

But know that this is not only (obviously) not just for the masses, this is also not just for someone who can afford to invest in a high level private coach. Being willing to throw money down is something which has absolutely zero correlation to being somebody who has what it takes to TRULY go next level as a leader.

If anything, in this industry, investing in a high level coach such as myself, is a rite of passage which veers just a little too much on the side of ‘trend’. It’s become something which ‘everybody does’, almost as a way of proving they play business and life a certain way.

Maybe even of trying to prove it to themselves.

Here is the reality which those who I am truly here to personally mentor and lead KNOW, the reality which my clients and all women like me as well as of course me personally have ALWAYS known:

We are VERY VERY DIFFERENT.

We are simply, smarter, faster, and have more presence. We can do more in our minds before breakfast than what most people can do in a freakin’ WEEK, a month, a year.

We are not basic ass coaches trying to heave ho our way up a few extra thou a month.

We are the ones who have ALWAYS known we are 1% within the 1% within the 1% in terms of how we think, create, operate, how and WHAT we are tapped in too.

This is not arrogance, this is fact.

And there has NEVER been any question but that we will go all the way.

My clients are high level badasses who do the work, who have a proven track record BEFORE coming to me, and a BEING-ness which unquestionably separates them from the rest. They don’t come to me to save them or lean down and hold my hand out so they can clamber up. They come because they are, quite simply, ready to go to the next level, already absolutely on their WAY there, and see in me something which they recognise because it is in them.

That ‘can’t stop won’t stop’ fire, and a level of ‘unapologeticness’ which, when truly understood and applied, can literally be the difference between 5-figure or low 6-figure and 7 or multi-7-figure entrepreneur.

So if you know who you are and it is THAT –

And you feel certain that you are ALREADY well on your way to to precisely where you’re meant to be, but that being in MY energy could help you to drop in and get there even faster, and that with a couple of simple tweaks your current revenue could be doubling, tripling, heck QUADRUPLING and beyond in months, as it has done with numerous of my clients previously, well then –

PM me here http://m.me/katrinaruthofficial and we’ll see if it’s a fit. I’m excited to talk to you, and maybe – do biz and life with you.
