    This one store has just binned £78,000 worth of unsold goods over the Christmas period, the staff are no longer allowed to buy it at a reduced price, its not giving to the homeless or needy and a lot of turkeys were slaughtered needlessly, this is just one store...

    Presumably, then, it's all going to be destroyed. Instead of destroying it, perhaps they could send it all to Africa...

    ...then there would be no need for all this expensive 'foreign aid'.

    Drives me nuts. Especially given the general climate (literally) and financially.

    Supermarkets should know better. Some do club together in some regions to give to charities. It should be mandatory to do this and it should be a nationwide scheme.

    My local Tesco Express in Bramhall overbakes in their in store bakery and everything goes in a bin bag and gets thrown out past 10 o'clock.

    When I ask if it can go to the soup kitchens, the answer is "No, if someone chokes or gets food poisoning, we'll get sued..." :rolleyes:

    Yes, another example of what the ambulance chasers and all this litigation these days has done to the country.
    Will we ever regain any common sense?
     
  13. At my local Tesco Express the other day, a sparrow decided to fly in, have a look round, then fly out again. I overheard the manager telling staff to throw out the whole of the fresh bakery section - bread, rolls, cakes etc. ???

    Couldn't they have sold them "cheep" "cheep "?

  15. This kind of wastage should be criminalised esp when people are going hungry in our supposedly 1st world nation.

    That's funny, the large Tesco stores near me have birds in permanent residence, flying around all over the place!
