Water v Government Takeover

Noel from South Taranaki District

Being one of a few people who attended the open consultation process of the local council's 10 year plan I was very concerned about the proposed water take over by Government probably by the end of this year giving very little time for all councils to discuss this matter with the public. Full details have not yet been presented to Councils. This will cover water to your property. Grey wastewater and also storm water. So think of what is happened with Health Boards and the many problems there. This could be the future of your water. You will all be paying rates directly to a yet faceless organisation. You will be forced to accept fluoride whether it is good or not !!? If Government forced companies to greatly reduce sugar contents in drinks and food then there will not be so many teeth problems. I am doing my bit now do yours . Spread the word NO to Government controlling our water.

McDonald's

New Zealand’s lush green pastures and temperate climate means our country produces some of the world’s best beef.

New Zealand is one of McDonald’s top ten beef-producing markets and it’s such a hit with the rest of the world that a significant percentage of NZ’s beef exports are to international McDonald’s markets.

We partner with many Kiwi farmers who produce our beef, including Whangara Farms which was the first beef farm outside of Europe to be invited to the McDonald’s Flagship Farmers programme.

ANZCO Foods, based in the small Taranaki town of Waitara, are responsible for making our 100% beef patties. About 90% of the staff at the Waitara plant are locals and they manage to produce around half a million patties each day.

Our quality beef cuts are minced and that’s it. No additives or fillers, just mince that is formed in patties, before they’re flash-frozen and sent to restaurants.
