No more wasting food in French supermarkets

In France, supermarkets will now give away food that would otherwise have been thrown out.

French MPs, from across the political spectrum, voted unanimously to force supermarkets to give away unsold food that has reached its sell-by date. Shops will be banned from destroying food to prevent it being distributed.

The next step is to persuade EU member states to introduce similar legislation, and eventually, around the world.
