China finds crafty solution to Baby Formula problem

TRENT BARTLETT

With the aftermath of 2008’s Chinese milk scandal still looming over parents’ minds across the country, one Chinese company has come across an inventive way to feed the nation’s infants without fear of contamination.

China’s Mengniu Dairy is set to pay over $600m to buy Kirin’s Lion Dairy & Drinks portfolio, including SA’s Farmers Union Iced Coffee.

We thought: “here is a population that is raised on this milky drink from birth”. And South Australian children seem healthy, they’re certainly not under-nourished

An Australian spokesperson from Mengniu Dairy explained how his company will push to have FUIC integrated into China’s national food guidelines, as has been done successfully in South Australia for decades.

‘We looked at the number of Chinese citizens who are still shipping over baby formula from Australia’, said Greg Champion, ‘Then we looked at South Australian children. We thought: “here is a population that is raised on this milky drink from birth”. And South Australian children seem healthy, they’re certainly not under-nourished’.

‘We knew that Australia is in the middle of a childhood obesity epidemic due to sugary drinks such as FUIC. I’m told that in China, the word “obesity” is synonymous with “prosperity”. We could be responsible for a “prosperity epidemic”. Nobody can tell me that’s a bad thing!’

Meanwhile, ill-informed South Australians have reacted to the takeover news on Adelaide’s two most trusted sources of local news, The Advertiser’s comments section and Shit Adelaide’s comments section.

‘I’ll be boycotting em from now on. FUIC is supposed to be South Aussie’, said Angry Aussie from Klemzig, apparently forgetting that Farmers Union was already under Japanese ownership.

Back in China, the introduction of iced coffee into children’s diets has reportedly already led to a massive increase in the incidence of childhood diabetes. The Chinese government released a response saying: ‘This is the first we knew about this and any reports saying that we knew about this problem prior to the 2008 Olympics are simply false’.
