Tesco to give up to 80 tonnes of unsold food to charities every day - Feed the Need

Tesco Recycled Feed the Need Bahrain 3

Tesco has said it will tackle food waste in tens of thousands of its stores by distributing more unsold food to people in need through the charity FoodShare.

Over 55,000 tonnes of food was thrown away at Tesco stores and distribution centres in the last year, of which 30,000 could have been eaten. Most of that comes from the bakery, while fresh fruit and vegetables as well as pre-made food like salads and sandwiches are also frequently thrown away.
