Irreconcilable?

Irreconcilable?

I'm only now beginning to appreciate the effect divorce has on the children involved. The parents openly dislike each other and talk about it to their friends, lawyers, and associates. The kids, who can they talk to? Who will listen to their side? To whom can they vent? Do they even know the nature of the divorce in the first place? They didn't ask for it, it was thrust upon them by people they deeply love and trusted.

The Australian Corrugated Box Market just got more interesting

The Australian Corrugated Box Market just got more interesting

For many years Australia has had substantially a duopoly of corrugated box suppliers, with Visy Industries (Pratt Group) and Amcor (now Orora) between them supplying more than 85% of the market. A bruising "box war" many years ago saw the demise of the Smorgon Group as Australia's third integrated corrugated box supplier.
