Where can I buy Asda's wonky veg box from?
We've had a few people asking us where you can get Asda's wonky veg boxes from, because it looks like they're not selling them at all their stores. If you know all about them already, head straight to the bottom of this article and make your way through the list, or hit 'control & F' (or 'command F' if you're an Apple user) to find your town.
If you missed the news about these boxes, Asda have started selling vegetable boxes filled with produce that isn't exactly pretty, but is perfectly good to each. They cost £3.50, and are a very good idea, as they are going to reduce waste from producers, and of course, you get a load of greens for cheap!
Basically, the supermarket are running a trial at a bunch of their shops, to see if people are going to go for it or not.
Ian Harrison, Asda’s technical produce director, has said: "We’re excited to launch a unique and exclusive Wonky Vegetable box that is jam-packed with ugly winter veg that not only saves shoppers money but helps farmers get more of their crop onto our shelves."
So, here's a list of all the stores that are taking part in the trial.
Bury St Edmonds
Coventry Jubilee Cresent Supermarket
East Retford Supermarket
Hemel Hempstead Supermarket
Hull Mt Pleasant
Ipswich Stoke Park
Isle of Dogs
Old Kent Road
