Campaign starts in Berlin

Ban on food waste supermarkets

In Berlin, the Prinzessinnengärten, started the campaign "Leere Tonne" on Friday 3 July. Leere Tonne (empty garbage cans) is an initiative of Aktion Agrar, and Slow Food Youth Germany. Supported by the filmmaker Valentin Thurn ("Taste the Waste, "10 Milliarden"), Raphael Fellmer and many committed activists, this campaign calls for the ban on supermarkets wasting food. The initiative demands a law after the French example that prohibits grocery stores from throwing away unsold food. 

Supermarkets in France have to choose other solutions such as discounts on unsold food, the free distribution to charitable organizations or use the food as animal feed.
