Mountains of pineapples wasted during glut and Golden Circle closure, Aussie farmers sayNQ PARADISE PINES/FACEBOOK A photo posted by NQ Paradise Pines shows tonnes of pineapples going to waste due to an oversupply and the temporary closure of the Golden Circle cannery. "Golden Circle remains a huge supporter of Australian growers," the company said in a statement. "The canned pineapple Golden Circle supplies to the major Australian supermarkets is Australian-grown and processed in Queensland." Paradise Pines manager Robert Richardson said Golden Circle, owned by Heinz, is not the company Australians once knew. Queensland horticulture industry body GrowCom called for calm, saying the relationship with Golden Circle was vital to the pineapple industry.
