That this House notes the observation of a manager of a Tesco Express store, that Tesco has no policy of selling food moving towards the end of its shelf life at a reduced price or of passing such food to charities; calls on Tesco to review this policy; requests that supermarkets and food stores generally adopt practices which allow an acceptable use of food which is currently wasted; and asks the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs to consult the retail trade on ways in which a more socially and economically acceptable outcome to this waste of food by the big retailers could bebrought about.
