Inglorious Fruits And Vegetables: A Glorious Fight Against Food Waste

It’s well-known that millions of tons of food is wasted each year and a big part of that number comes from stores discarding produce that doesn’t fit the standards of food beauty.

But one supermarket in France came up with a brilliant idea on how to get people not only buying those fruits and veggies, but actually seeking them out. Intermarché, the third biggest grocer in the country, launched a campaign called “les fruits et légumes moches,” or in English, the inglorious fruits and vegetables.

They gave the produce a 30 per cent markdown, some prettily designed ads, and some serious publicity — all in the hope to make ugly fruit and veg the new purchase trend.

Raising the question would you eat fruit and veggies that looked a little, well, like this?
