Every day, thousands of pounds of good quality food goes to waste simply because it is part of a surplus that cannot be sold or because it is oddly sized, blemished, nearing its expiry date or because the packaging is slightly damaged. For example, if a flat of canned goods is damaged in shipping it may be cheaper for a grocer to dispose of the entire flat instead of paying someone to sort out the dented tins.
