Here’s one more reason to love France…

You’ve loved them for their fashion, you’ve loved them for their food and you’ve loved them for their monuments. It’s now time to love them for their benevolence, for their sensitivity and sensibility. The new French rule prohibits big supermarkets from spoiling unsold and donating them to charities instead. Isn’t that an extremely noble example to set for other countries? As per this new set of radical laws enacted by the French National Assembly forbids supermarkets with a floor area of more than 400 square metres to destroy discarded food. The usual practise was to pour chemical over food deemed unfit for sale and destroy it. Fortunately the minister of food termed this scandalous and made rules wherein these supermarkets tie up with charities and provide them with the surplus food.

It’s a very good idea where you tackle a social issue and also avoid unnecessary wastage of food. With this step the minister aims at targeting half the food wastage in the country by 2025. We hope this works out well and other countries follow suit.
