Supermarkets have been forced to defend their efforts to tackle the UK’s food waste crisis, after being accused by MPs of contributing to the “morally repugnant” mountain of produce thrown away each year by shoppers.
A report published today by the House of Lords EU Committee, Counting the Cost of Food Waste, urged supermarkets to end “Buy One, Get One Free” promotions to help cut the 15 million of tonnes of food wasted in the UK each year, at a cost of £5bn.
For a start there’s no way that politicians should be trying to intervene in the pricing of foodstuffs. But what the hell is the EU committee doing here?
This has an impact on whether Germany invades France how?
