What nonsense.

What is wrong with advising "value brands" instead of over priced manufacturer own brands ?

Try comparing Kellogg's Frosties v Supermarket own brand, which maybe half the price or less, or alternatives to Cadbury, especially biscuits, which maybe one third of the price.

Are we now so vain, that unless we can afford top notch best gear, the Government should be brought down.

I fancy a bit of Beluga 000 caviar at £3500.00 for 500g on my toast for breakfast, so if it means cancelling the wife's Electrolysis appointments and she has to keep the beard, look out Boris !!

The trouble is the governments agricultural policy is all about "raising standards" in other words making us all become high cost producers, then import shite produced to lower standards, to be sold as a "value" range, which they encourage consumers to buy, rather than the higher standard but more expensive UK product.

Have you ever thought the some of the value brands maybe come from the same factory, as the original ?

sadly there is a lot wrong with thinking 'value brands' are a good way to overcome food poverty.

Very often, the value brands just mimic the highly processed items that people want to fill their trolleys with because it is simply cheaper. The food stuffs in these brands is not cheaper because of lack of red tractor assurance, they are cheaper because they have been filled out with palm oil based fats and corn based carbohydrates . The dietary nightmare that leads to obesity.
The simple answer to cheaper food is to understand firstly what food is and secondly how to prepare and cook it. It's not rocket science, just common sense.
As said above, education. Home Economics would solve a lot of the nation's NHS, health, welfare and food poverty problems in one swoop.
Sadly, politicians or corporate food processors would never question the value of 'value brands' because there is too much money to be made out of cheap food.🤷
