  Have you ever checked the label on a milk container and worried that it was expired? Maybe you opened it and smelled the milk, and believed it was OK. Then, you bravely took a sip, and it turned out that the milk tasted exactly the same as it did the previous day.

  你是否曾經查看牛奶容器上的標籤,擔心它過期了?或許你打開它,聞一聞牛奶,認為味道還可以。於是,你勇敢地喝了一口,結果牛奶的味道嚐起來和前一天的完全一樣。

  When someone walks into a supermarket and looks at the labels on food, they are often not interested when the final date is close. The problem is that a lot of food goes to waste because of this.

  有人走進超市看著食物上的標籤時,他們常常對快過期的不感興趣。問題是有很多食物因為這樣而浪費。

  WeFood, a supermarket in Copenhagen, Denmark, is trying to change this. All the food in its store is 50% cheaper than other grocery stores, but this is because all the food is past the expiration dates. WeFood aims to attract two kinds of people low-income customers and those concerned about waste.

  Overall, Denmark is doing a good job of lowering food waste. Over the past five years, waste has gone down by 25%. If WeFood catches on, this type of grocery store could be a hit around the world.
