In April 2016 Choice tested oregano samples from 12 brands and found that only 5 were 100% oregano. The other seven, including Menora, contained between 50% and 90% ingredients other than oregano, such as olive leaves. Choice referred the matter to the ACCC. As a result this company has agreed to only use 100% oregano. (http://bit.ly/2fzEvUe)

According to data released by the Australian Tax Office in Dec 2018, this company was one of 2,159 local and foreign-based companies that paid no tax in Australia in 2016-17. Please note however that companies pay income tax on profits, not revenue (total income). While some companies use tax havens and loopholes to avoid paying their fair share of tax in Australia, other companies that paid no tax have perfectly legitimate reasons.
