A name like that is likely to stick in one's mind. In 2004 The Green Monkey Company Ltd received $20,000 from the Ministry of Economic Development under the Enterprise Award Scheme. They also received funding from Crop and Food Research.
Now Green Monkey are attacking their competitor's products. Those companies which pay tax to fund the corporate welfare Green Monkey are quite happy to take. Although the attacks may have validity the ethics are questionable.
Also they want plunket to promote their product which they say can't happen because of the "corporate dollar". Which implies other babyfood manufacturers sponsor plunket who in turn promote their food. Do they want free advertising too?
Green Monkey's baby food may be the best thing since sliced bread but they should foot it in the marketplace without taxpayer subsidy.
Or perhaps they could try the Dragon's Den to secure some voluntary funding.
