The need to retain jobs in our region is not disputed. Recently I went and visited the Wests Soft Drinks and Cordial factory in “South D” and after speaking to the owner sent him an email with a view to him retailing his products here on campus at the University of Otago I do not like Coke anyways and prefer Sarsaparilla Some products are already used in the accommodation Halls Alas no response although as a minimum the OUSA would support such a move even if it was to put drink dispensers in their various buildings. Do we want to work or not? We simply must support our local produce. At least I tried, are you?
