Waste Not, Want Not 珍惜食材零浪費 ── WeFood 剩食超市
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.
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.
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.
位於丹麥哥本哈根的超市 ── WeFood，正試圖改變這種情形。店內所有食物的價格都比其他雜貨店便宜 50%，但這是因為所有的食物都過期了。WeFood 旨在吸引兩種人購買 ── 低收入的顧客和那些關切食物浪費的人。
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.
總的來說，丹麥在減少食物浪費上做得很好。過去五年來，食物浪費已經降低了 25%。如果 WeFood 成為趨勢，這類型的雜貨店將在全球各地受到歡迎。
