Hi,
The following sentence comes from here, the paragraph starting with Autres vertus essentielles de....
Histoire de bien se distinguer des élites cossues, plus riches mais moins intelligentes et pas très au fait en matière de dentifrice bio à 35 euros le tube !
How do we translate au fait en matière de something?
Thank you.

    "être au fait de quelquechose" = to be aware about something

    A few suggestions:

    ...clueless about organic toothpaste at €35 a tube.
    ...not really on top of their €35-a-tube organic toothpaste.
    ...lost when it comes to €35-a-tube organic toothpaste.
