Aussie survey

Vegetarian Survey: A friend of mine is working on a project to write a business plan for a vegetarian food store. She distributed this survey around here at work and I offered to post it on the ‘Net for her. Please take a second to post your responses in the comments. It’ll only take a second and I know she’d appreciate it! It’s technically only for Australians, but you international types can play along too, I guess.Meatless Meals Eaters – Research Questionnaire

    But this is not to say that I wouldn’t purchase food from a health store. We don’t have that many health food stores that sell food, but the ones that do overcharge 3 to 4 times the price elsewhere. For obvious reasons, they shut down. But I really like your friend’s idea. If we had a vegetarian food store here that wouldn’t gouge your wallet, I think it would do really well. Good luck. =)
