Put Pioneer Foods Fine to Good Use

12 Signatures Goal: 100

The Competition Commission has fined Pioneer Foods R500 million for price fixing.  Daily we are hearing news reports of parents who are killing themselves and their children because they are driven to it, unable to afford to feed them and wanting to end the suffering of starvation.

 

How desperate must you be to want to take your own child's life to end their suffering ??

 

As any teacher will tell you, a hungry child cannot be taught.  They cannot concentrate on lessons when their brain has not had the fuel to keep it going.  So what happens, the child performs poorly, fails exams, drops out of school and who knows what from there.

 

Pioneer Foods produces many products including bread, canned tuna and fruit juice. 

 

One tuna sandwich and a fruit juice contains enough protein, carbohydrates and vitamins to help a child stay focused in school and make sure that they are at least getting one form of sustenance a day.

 

We want Minister Patel to instruct Pioneer Foods to pay the R500 million fine in products and provide every single child in a government school with a tuna sandwich and a fruit juice for as long as the funds last.  And the cost of this should be worked out at what it costs Pioneer Foods to produce these items not at the retail value !!
