Asda start to sell 'wonky veg' boxes
A lot of fruit and veg is thrown out by supermarkets, because they're not aesthetically pleasing enough, which of course, is a complete nonsense of a situation. Perfectly good food, being thrown out because it isn't pretty enough.
Well, Asda are trying to do something about it, and have started selling their 'wonky veg' boxes, as of today. And the great news is that they're going cheap! You can get a box of veg for £3.50, which should last you a week.
For your money, you'll get knobbly potatoes and crooked carrots, as well as in-season vegetables and salad ingredients.
The staples are all covered, so you'll be getting spuds, carrots, peppers, cucumbers, cabbages, onions, and all that good stuff, all selected for the boxes because they're a bit misshapen. They'll all be washed, as normal, and sold for 30% less than the other veg.
It saves on a lot of waste from producers, and you get a bargain if you're not bothered about blemishes and growth cracks on vegetables. It's a win-win situations. Good work Asda.
