Grocery Giant Gives Away Unsold Food to Homeless
Tesco is giving away unsold food at the end of each day to charities such as homeless hostels and children's breakfast clubs.
The supermarket giant revealed it threw away 55,400 tons of food in the last year, of which 30,000 tonnes could otherwise have been eaten.
The food most commonly thrown away was from the bakery, followed by fresh fruit and vegetables and convenience items like pre-packaged sandwiches and salads.
It is testing an app in partnership with UK food redistribution charity FareShare and Irish social enterprise FoodCloud that will allow store managers to alert charities to the amount of surplus food they have at the end of each day.
