Tesco is dropping some food promotions after finding that two-thirds of produce grown for bagged salad is wasted.
The supermarket giant has revealed food waste figures for its operations for the first time, revealing that 68% of salad to be sold in bags is thrown out - 35% of it in the home.
As a result of the findings, it is to end multi-buys on large bags of salad and is developing mix-and-match promotions for smaller bags in a bid to help customers reduce the amount they are wasting.
It is also removing 'display until' dates from fresh fruit and vegetables, using smaller cases in stores and rearranging 600 in-store bakeries to reduce the amount of bread on display, with the aim of better stock control and less waste.
Figures released by Tesco show a shocking level of waste across its supply chain, with lessons for consumers as well as supermarkets.
From storing apples in the fridge to rejuvenating stale bread, there are many easy ways to reduce food waste in your home.
