Follow Friday: Inglorious produce

A friend shared this video with me recently. Seems to fit with my recent theme of supermarkets reducing food waste. This one was in France, rather than Germany though. It’s ridiculous that vegetables and fruits are all expected to have a certain appearance and that “misshapen” ones are turfed. It’s great to see these being used in popular products. One little quibble with the article: these rejected produce items wouldn’t have been trash for the supermarket. They would have been trash for the farmers as the supermarket would not have purchased the “inferior” produce from them.
