'We as an industry are weak'


Jason, I don't know how long you have been in the industry or in what positions. Assuming Lucan Lord was 15 when he started and is 63 now, it's a fair bet that he's probably been in it longer than you and has more experience. I for one think he's right and the names on the senetaph such as Keynon, WM Allen, Botts and others lay testamant to that fact. Personnally I have had a number of years involved at senior level in supermarket contracts and negotiation and fully understand where he's coming from. I too have had "food on the table" from this industry but it doesn't mean that I'm blind to the idiotic business behaviour that can go on within it. If you are currently working as a contractor in the refrigeration industry to one or more of the supermarket chains, it may be that if they ulitimately pull the rug from under your feet, that you will end up with a slightly more cynical view than you have at the moment. Or are you working for the "other side"???
