Coles answers critics on Hormone-free meat | Love, Sex, Lifestyle Ruth Ostrow | @ostrowruth, 6 June 2013 [cached]
Coles spokesman Jim Cooper admitted to being swayed by consumer demand on animal welfare.
Mr Cooper dismissed claims by some farmers on this site that Coles is imposing rules on the local industry that it does not impose on overseas suppliers of smallgoods.
But Cooper says: "With regards to us imposing onerous conditions on our industry, it's simply not true.

I'm here to talk to Allister ..., 13 Mar 2011 [cached]
I'm here to talk to Allister Watson, the general manager of meat, who arrives with Jim Cooper, Coles' communications manager.
Watson and Cooper play a dead bat to the accusations of scare-mongering.
The answer to these questions, as Watson and Cooper well know, is a mix of concern, precaution and, in the case of Tasmania (as in the case of Coles), branding.
These days, Cooper is careful to play down Coles' ostensible benevolence. "It's a cost that we wear across the business. It doesn't get passed on specifically as part of the product to the customer," he says. "We're not stupid.
When the company was recently attacked by a group calling itself the Animal Health Alliance, Jim Cooper took great pleasure in pointing out that the alliance was a front for the pharmaceutical behemoths who peddle the hormones.
Jim Cooper, the company spin doctor, quickly interjects that there's no accounting for taste. The company's product is overwhelmingly grain-fed, after all.
Several industry insiders tell me that Coles is looking at buying its own feedlots, and possibly abattoirs, to streamline operations and cut costs. (Watson and Cooper neither confirm nor deny this.) If so, Coles might well pick them up cheaply.
Coles Corporate Affairs ..., 14 Nov 2012 [cached]
Coles Corporate Affairs Officer Jim Cooper says 35 of the 212 deaths involving articulated or heavy rigid trucks in 2011 relate to the food and liquor industry and none involve Coles.
He says Coles has improved safety in its own supply chain with a 76 percent reduction in team member injuries in the last year.
He also adds that the TWU has made a number of false claims about Coles' transport operations, saying the business is managed by large and reputable transport providers who are proud of their safety record.
"In no way do our transport contacts with such companies force drivers into unsafe or illegal practices," Cooper says.
He has denied allegations that one in three trucks work for major retailers like Coles, saying Coles road transport represents less than four percent of the food and liquor retailers.
