Between 9 December 2010 until on or about 28 May 2013, Barossa Farm Produce made false or misleading representations on product packaging, on the websites www.saskiabeer.com and www.barossafarmproduce.com, on the Facebook page www.facebook.com/theblackpigbarossa, and at an “Autumnal Cooking Class” held in Nuriootpa, South Australia, that:
(1) the pork used in its “Black-Pig” labelled smallgoods was from:
(a) heritage Berkshire or other heritage black pig breeds;
(b) pigs that were free range; and
(2) it knew the origin of every animal used in the production of “Black Pig” labelled products.
Following concerns raised by the ACCC, Barossa Farm Produce has provided a court enforceable undertaking to the ACCC to ensure that similar conduct will not occur again.

PERSONAL MESSAGE FROM SASKIA BEER
As a passionate foodie, I established Barossa Farm Produce to offer quality gourmet products to food lovers.
That’s why I so deeply regret my failure between December 2010 and May 2013 to ensure that every single product in my Black Pig range was heritage Berkshire and free range. Some of these products between December 2010 and May 2013 were not exclusively heritage breed or Berkshire and free range.
I apologise unreservedly to every customer who was in any way misled. I am angered and saddened but the buck stops with me.
I understood that my previous supplier was supplying a particular type of product. Unfortunately, that was not always the case. Importantly, I failed to adequately verify the source of the product across the range for which I take responsibility.
There was no intention to mislead or misrepresent in any way the origin of any product.
Our systems for ensuring compliance have been reviewed to ensure there is no reoccurrence. We have a new supplier.
That means that, for the past year since mid-2013, our Black Pig range has at all times been just that… heritage breed or Berkshire and free range. I am absolutely committed to providing the quality gourmet food that you and all my customers expect of me.
I value highly our relationship. If you have any queries regarding the findings of the ACCC, please don’t hesitate to ask me.
My commitment is to continue to be accountable to you, my customer.
