Chocolate Australia .... Made in China ---WHAT!!

How to confuse buyers !!!!
Chocolate Australia .... Made in China ..
Oh don't miss the bit distributed by New Zealand either used as a back door for China products.
This is a product designed for the Aussie chocolate market by the MARS Corporation [UK], and it says proudly [Chocolate Australia] , however in sneaky hidden text, "Made in China"..is placed in small print on the back at the very bottom...if you check!

Janine Mary Eleanor Australian companies can quite capably make chocolates. We do not need chocolates produced in China. Australian people need jobs too.
