However it must be added that it's time for Australia to get more bang for it's buck! Europe has a very competitive retail/grocery market and e.g. in Germany theses days there are not only Aldi and Lidl as Discount players but at least an other 3-4!!! With great results in prices and quality!!!!! Quality AND prices of products are the best I've ever seen in 40 years! (just been there August 2016) It always comes down to the good old principle: the more competitors the better for us customer!!!
