Strawberry daiquiris all round: Bernardi

September 21, 2018

Conservative Party leader Cory Bernardi has urged Australians to go out and buy strawberries and other fruit in the wake of this week's food-contamination scare.

Parliament and households have taken very different but equally important action to support strawberry growers and sabotage the saboteurs.

Laws toughening deliberate contamination penalties were introduced yesterday and passed within four hours, having only been foreshadowed on Wednesday.

As the Government was drafting the crackdown on “food terrorists”, more and more home cooks were looking for ways to use strawberries.

Searches of taste.com.au containing “strawberry” rose 68 per cent on Wednesday from the day before, when they had increased at an even sharper rate. Searches on strawberry jam and muffins in particular have soared.  

Senator Bernardi has told Triple M's Luke Bona the answer to this kind of food terrorism is very simple.
