Posted on 16 July 2016
OWEN NELSON CONSPIRED TO CUT SUPPLY TO ("A-SASHI")
In late 2013 when Post Holdings (“Post”) were preparing to acquire, the PowerBar + Musashi brands and related worldwide assets (“PowerBar + Musashi”) from Nestlé in a $500 million cash and stock deal, Nestlé conspired with (“Post”) to approach Arnet Pharmaceutical (“Arnet”) a contract manufacturer of nutritional supplements, to engage in a conspiracy to cut supply to the James William Christian (“Christian”) business A-Sashi Vitamins (“A-Sashi”).
Owen Nelson, (dismissed) PowerBar + Musashi General Manager, initiated conspiracy.
(“Arnet”) co-manufactured for (“A-Sashi”) from December 2012 but refused to continue in November 2013 after Owen Nelson PowerBar + Musashi General Manager caused (“Arnet”) to receive a supply-contract from (“Post”) for cutting supply to ("A-Sashi"). Information detailing (“Arnet”) and (“A-Sashi”) was purposely provided to Owen Nelson by Aldo D’Agostino, Head of Sales Oceania at DHL Global.
OWEN NELSON INITIATED A CONSPIRACY TO CUT SUPPLY TO ("A-SASHI”) AND FOR ("POST") AND NESTLÉ TO COMMENCE LEGAL PROCEEDINGS AGAINST (“A-SASHI”) FOR A COLLATERAL PURPOSE OF WILLFUL AND MALICIOUS HARASSMENT
Owen Nelson initiated a conspiracy to cut supply to (“A-Sashi”) and for Nestlé Head IP Adviser Oceania, Donna Bessell, to cause Nestlé IP lawyers, Banki Haddock Fiora, to be instructed for a collateral purpose of willful and malicious harassment to file a Musashi trademark action to be brought against (“A-Sashi”) under the Trade Marks Act 1995 filed on 20 December 2013 commencing legal proceedings in the Federal Circuit Court of Australia proceedings – SYG3214/2013 Société des Produits Nestlé SA & Ors v James William Christian (“FCC proceedings”) a month prior to (“Post”) announcing on 3 February 2014 it agreed to acquire (“PowerBar + Musashi”) from Nestlé.
(“POST") DUMPED MUSASHI AT A LOSS EXCEEDING $40 MILLION TO CONCEAL CRIMINAL ACTIONS
In October 2014 (“Post”) acquired (“PowerBar + Musashi”) from Nestlé in a $500 million cash and stock deal, with Musashi valued at an estimated $45 million. (“Post”) dumped Musashi at a loss exceeding $40 million during the (“Federal Court proceedings”), in a sell-off to Vitaco Holdings (“Vitaco”) for $3.8 million on 1 July 2015 and misrepresented the sell-off for Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) mandatory filings, in the attempt to conceal criminal actions and disconnect from Musashi liabilities revealing that:
The Musashi brand is the only sell-off in 11 acquisitions made by (“Post”) from 2012–2016 taking in Attune Foods, Michael Foods, Hearthside Food Solutions, Premier Nutrition, Golden Boy Foods, Dymatize Enterprises, Dakota Growers, PowerBar + Musashi, American Blanching Company, MOM Brands and Willamette Egg Farms.

“On 22 November 2013 at the request of the solicitors, I visited 706/400 St Kilda Road Melbourne. It was an exclusive residential apartment called The Botanica, there was no name on any of the post boxes and I could not get inside the reception as it has security code access only.”
