Dick Smith’s Aussie owned Christmas

“It’s very cheap. It’s funny, a lot of people think if it’s Australian, it’s more expensive. Quite often it isn’t, so you can have a fantastic Christmas time and Christmas day, but support the home team,” the 73-year-old told A Current Affair.
Join Dick as he tours the aisles of the supermarkets with Channel Nine’s A Current Affair. He is out to show that buying Australian isn’t necessarily more expensive, so you can have an affordable Christmas, while supporting Aussie farmers and producers.
Dick says by buying Australian, customers can be sure their food is 100% up to scratch.
“We’re very fortunate people, we take it for granted, and if you travel overseas and you look at a developing county, it doesn’t have the wealth to put into food standards,” Dick said.
“That’s why our own Australian grown is so fantastic. I’d say for Christmas Day, that’s what you’ve got to do – you’ve got to support the Australian farmer.”
