Criminalise the destruction of food by supermarkets

Criminalise the destruction of perfectly good food by supermarkets that could be given to such groups as the Salvation Army for distribution to the poor and destitute.

Why is this important?

Millions of tonnes of food, particularly fresh food, that is perfectly good for human consumption are destroyed every year by supermarkets because it is in some way "blemished". Meanwhile those living in poverty, housed or on the streets, are going hungry or even malnourished here in the UK. This is utterly immoral and must cease NOW.

Reasons for signing

  • Yes, they should certainly be fined twice the retail price of that food they destroy/waste when it can be useful to charities for the poor.
