This is a great new idea! A Bristol restaurant only uses food found in containers outside supermarkets that has passed its sell-by date. If anything the delicious food produced from these ingredients show that the sell-by and use-by dates do not accurately reflect the quality of the food. Although, there should be regulations in place to make sure that we don't get ill from the food that we eat throwing perfectly edible food in the bin because of a number on the pack is ludicrous! One alternative, which I think has been banned, is to give all food that is to be thrown away from supermarkets, restaurants and cafes to people who may need it such as soup kitchens or shelters. Stop wasting and start recycling!
