    Default Another one about Bunnings

    Bunnings bacon ban: Hardware giant outrages customers by prohibiting rashers from their much-loved sausage sizzles - so who are they worried about offending?

    • Sausage sizzles are sold outside Bunnings hardware stores every week
    • They are a way for groups to fundraise in their local communities
    • Fundraisers are not allowed to sell bacon, eggs, or kabana meats
    • Bunnings said this is to make sure the fundrasiers are inclusive

    Yawn...typical media beat up!

    'shoppers confused' says the article - only in the minds of the person who wrote the article.

    Since when is bacon or an egg a human right?

    If a person doesn't like it, they can buy their sausage in bread somewhere else, I say!

    Nonsense. It's not just a ban on pork. You also can't get chicken sausages, or even beef burgers. Bunnings fundraiser guidelines allow beef sausages, onions and bread. That's it. It's got absolutely nothing to do with being PC.

    When groups do the sausage sizzles they are expected to get the sausages and bread from Coles.

    What a pathetic article, I've been involved in these, rules are simple, bread, sausages, onion, sauce, soft drink and water. That's it a simple fundraiser, we have never been asked to buy from Coles though although it makes sense that you would be expected to. So some dill has been offended it can't be turned into a gourmet lunch offering? let's face it the thing is a sausage sizzle, if you don't like it go somewhere else this is clearly in the WGAF category.

    Wesfarmers is the parent company of both Bunnings and also Coles (and various others) so I can see some logic there if it's true.

    Bunnings are giving use of their space and foot traffic (and I assume they donate use of the BBQ and gas?) and just asking that you don't buy your stuff from a rival (eg Woolworths) in return. Seems reasonable - it's not as though Coles are going to jack up prices specially just for anyone buying for the purpose of running a sausage sizzle at Bunnings.

    That said, another post says it's not true anyway.....

    They need to introduce cooking instructions for the sausages as well. In Glenorchy early this year I over heard the lady saying she had pre-boiled the sausages after someone asked if they were being cooked long enough. Worst sausage sizzle ever.

    I volunteered at Bunnings sausage sizzle for our local Rural Fire Brigade just recently. I have done this before, and you could buy sausages, onion, bacon, drinks, and all profits from this went to Rotary who shared this with many wonderful charities around our area. The last time I did this, we cooked bacon and you could pay an extra bit to add bacon to your iconic sausage and bread. However….NOW…Bunnings have banned the cooking of bacon at all of the charity sausage sizzles, because of a complaint about bacon. YES. Every single Bunnings store, (is this owned by Westfarmers), has now banned the cooking of bacon at all of the charity sausage sizzles right across the country. I wonder why???? Bunnings????? Why?????? If we complain about this horrendous lack of character, lack of fairness, lack of inclusiveness, lack of whatever you want to add here….will Bunnings then ban charities from using this facility? Will Bunnings suffer if they allow the traditional bacon to be added to our charity sausage sizzles? Will the world of profit fall in on Bunnings if they allow Bacon back on the menu????? If you read this and get a little angry, just like I did, then please share this around. I just feel this is happening and the ordinary Aussie is not being considered. How much money would Bunnings make from the people who don’t want to eat or be near Bacon? I mean the population of those people would not be as many as us….or is it?????

    Yes because the homebrand "multigrain" or "wholemeal" bread is so much better
