Waste of Food – Appeal to the EU

To deal with this problem, we suggest to the members of the parliament to:

1) explain to consumers that the expiration date does not mean, that the product is no longer consumable, but still – even for a long time after the best before date – can be eaten: The expiration date is no reason to throw away food!

2) Food waste is massively given, when especially vegetables and fruits are sorted out, just because they do not fit to European norms. These products could be offered for cheaper prices to persons of lower economic status.
