Arnold's fined for illegally importing veg

Arnolds Market Ltd. was fined this morning after an operating manager representing the company admitted in Magistrates' Court the company had illegally importing produce.

According to Crown counsel Robert Welling, a search of Arnold's Market stores on March 9 revealed imported broccoli and carrots repackaged and available for sale.

“In at attempt to conceal evidence, they even went so far as depositing them in a dumpster,” Mr Welling said.

Carrots are embargoed year round, while broccoli is embargoed seasonally.

Senior Magistrate Archibald Warner fined the company $600 for each offence, saying: “I guess there's no carrots for Christmas this year. Except local carrots.”
