Rebranding surplus
31 July 2014

The news this week applauded that one of our leading supermarkets is now turning food "waste" into energy which will power one of their large stores. I can see nothing to celebrate in the fact that our twenty-first century technology can turn food "waste" (their term not mine) into power but not into a source of nutrition for hungry mouths both here and overseas. Having witnessed hunger first hand in developing countries I felt more inclined to weep.
