Tony Lloyd MP says supermarkets should give waste to charities

Here's a piece of interesting news we recently came across, Tony Lloyd, a Labour MP for Manchester Central is advocating that supermarkets should give their waste to charities to be seen as 'socially responsible' rather than focus on reducing waste with a purely profit driven focus.

We absolutely agree with Tony Lloyd and would love to see more waste and especially food waste being donated to schemes like our FareShare programme in Manchester. Not only would supermarkets save money on waste disposal, but all of their food would go to those in need across the region.

Surely that is the type of behavior every 'socially responsible' company would like to advocate? We wish Tony the best of luck in his campaign and fully support his suggestions.
