This pack, which costs three euros, contains fruits and vegetables that either do not meet conventional aesthetic standards but are perfectly safe to eat, or They are part of containers that have suffered some type of damage but that have not affected the quality of the product.
This initiative, which has been implemented in recent weeks in more than 30 stores in the Canary Islandsaccording to a statement from the chain, has achieved sell more than 20,000 kilograms of fruit and vegetables. For this reason, after the success of the initiative, it has decided to implement it in the rest of the Spanish stores so that we can now find these packs in all Lidl stores and with this, not only avoid wasting food but also consumers will be able to save.
“One of our top priorities is to reduce food waste. In order to reduce the number of unsold products in our inventory as much as possible, we are firmly committed to prevention, planning and effective assortment management. The introduction of the anti-waste bag is another initiative that aims to encourage the purchase of fruits and vegetables that are still suitable for consumption. After the success of the Canary Islands, I am sure that our clients in the rest of the country will also welcome this initiative” according to Michaela Reischl, director of CSR of Lidl Spain.
