from Florian Treiss on 02 August 2022 in News

Dear readers,

In Germany, around 11 million tonnes of food end up in the bin every year. Lidl wants to put an end to that and is now introducing the so-called “rescue bag” nationwide. The paper bag, which weighs up to five kilos and costs a standard 3 euros, contains different types of fruit and vegetables that would not normally be able to be sold due to damaged packaging or for visual reasons. A fantastic approach. More news from the industry as always in the newsletter.

Best regards, Florian Treiss
