Curly cucumbers and knobbly carrots are to return to shop shelves in a move that promises to cut the price of some fresh produce by up to 40per cent.
An EU ban on the sale of wonky fruit and veg which did not meet the \’beauty pageant\’ standards set by Brussels is to be axed.
Stores claim the shift will allow them to sell value packs of wonky fruit and vegetables for as little as 50p each.
Ah, yes, those were the regulations that everyone denied existed and even if they did the supermarkets had been crying out for them which is why you should go to jail for 6 months for selling a wonky vegetable.
Regulations which have taken years and years to over turn, their costing the consumer hundreds of millions if not billions in the interim.
If we didn\’t already have the EU we wouldn\’t invent it now, would we?
