Hi,
 I'm also doing some work on this very issue, but it is slow. what I do
think is they should have a sign telling you they aren't home made. Sure
if you like these pies then buy them, but we have the right to know
either way,

Brent.

The next time you  the pie loving customer pay a visit to your local  
bakery, well, you know the ones, Rosemary's cake shop, Ben's party  
bakery, Joe's bread shop, Rita's buns bakery, you should really be  
asking your local bakery exactly where they are getting and or making  
their home made pies.

Reliable information and sources indicate that local bakeries all over  
Australia are queueing up, pushing one another over to be the first in  
line, to sign a heads of agreement with Mrs. Macs Pies company.

In the good old days, actually, not all that long ago, you would drive  
miles to your local and or favourite bakery in the quest for the  
perfect home made pie.  You know the ones I'm talking about.  The  
wheat came from the local farm, the butter from his neighbours cow,  
the meat from another cow down the road and so on.  You would go out  
of your way for the taste, your baker would bake them just right,  
plenty of filling, the real taste of real ingredients and so on.

And what is more, you would buy a pie to eat and take another dozen  
home for snacks and you the customer remained as loyal as you could,  
because you swore the bakery had the best  home made pies in the whole  
country.

Well, Mrs. Macs is changing all of that and what's more, the bakeries  
are falling over to sign up and get onboard. Well, think about this  
for a moment pie lovers of Australia.  It will cost the bakery less,  
they will be given a set recipe and set ingredients, and they will  
bake what Mrs. Macs has conveniently called an exclusive line of  
bakery made pies.

However customers, please don't allow yourselves to be fooled here  
please.  Mrs. Macs will get the cheapest ingredients they can find  
which means provided they follow regulations, they can import the  
ingredients.  What this means is this. Gone are the days the butter  
comes from your farmers local cow, the wheat won't come from his  
neighbour and the local butcher won't be supplying the meat any more.

And what is more, the bakery may still claim the new line of pies is  
home made simply because they were baked on the premises of the bakery  
itself.

Customers, if home made pies are being targeted, and you can be sure  
that they are, this then now leaves the doors wide open for cakes,  
bread, and anything else your bakery makes and calls home made.

And the worst thing about this disturbing potential scam is this.   
Don't think for a minute your bakery will pass the savings they make  
to you the pie eating and pie loving customer, they can just simply  
replace one home made pie they use to make with another from a set  
recipe and set ingredients and maybe, you the customer would be none  
the wiser.

Customers, think about this.  Provided the bakery gets the recipe  
right, they can make the pies taste home made even if the ingredients  
happen to come from China and or somewhere like that.

But this is a disturbing and potential scam.  This scam rivals those  
pulled by red rooster with their so called fish burger which had  
imported fish, the rabbit for chicken replacement scam run in  
Australia by kfc, the scam pulled by dominoes pizza when it thought it  
could get away with smaller sized pizzas and the list goes on and on.

Customers, pie lovers of Australia, don't allow your local bakeries to  
get away with this scam please.  Tell them what you think by not  
buying their products.

And what's more, if your local bakery is incapable of making their own  
versions of home made pies from home grown ingredients, the question  
must be asked, should they really be called bakeries any more?  I  
think my answer is definitely no way.

Ben Matthews.
