Do you know how much food is wasted by our supermarkets?
Imperfect – or are they – vegetables that are rejected by supermarkets because apparently the public won’t buy them. Is this true? Is this sense. The people who get hurt and put out of business are the growers and the waste is astronomical and just adds to an already massive waste problem. Great program by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, illustrating who are the important ones here – the sellers or the growers? And what is the sense in the waste?
A must watch BBC1 9pm Monday 2nd Nov – check it out on BBC Iplayer. Plus the waste of the consumer – great ideas on using old tired Veg and Fruit.
