France Makes It Illegal To Throw Away Edible Food
May 22, 2015
In an effort to cut down on waste, France is making it illegal for supermarkets to throw away edible food.
New laws will force supermarkets to donate discarded food to charity or allow it to be turned into animal feed, compost or energy. Stores larger than 1,300 square feet must sign a contract with a charity to donate edibles.
The Independent reports that the move has been welcomed by environmental groups, charities and food organizations, while campaigners are calling for similar laws around the world.
