On Saturday April 25th it will mark the ANZAC centenary, 100 years since 1915, we nationally hold dawn services and marches; similar to that of Remembrance Day. In the show we shared this news article that was published this week:
Our Australian major supermarket chain Woolworths “the fresh food people” is in trouble after publishing The “Fresh in Our Memories” website — linking Anzac commemorations to the retailer’s “Fresh Food People” branding tag line — was taken down overnight amid claims that it was in very poor taste.
Veterans’ Affairs Minister Michael Ronaldson weighed in this morning, saying Woolies would not have been given permission for the advertising had it been sought.
Woolworths encouraged members of the public to share stories and profile-style pictures of loved ones affected by or lost to war by uploading images to a website that then branded them with Woolworths logo and the phrase “Lest we Forget 1915-2015. Fresh in our memories.”


The site did not sit well with some Australians — with many taking to social media to slam the campaign as tasteless. The hashtags “#FreshInOurMemories” and “#BrandzacDay” are also gaining momentum.


Lest You Forget, Woolworths Has Great Prices

What do you think? Was it poor taste? Or a good gesture gone wrong?
