Supermarkets please stop food waste

This petition had 180 supporters

Like many who watched recent ABC TV doco War on Waste I was shocked at the trashing of good fruit rejected by supermarkets because it is  not the right size or shape. Up to 40 per cent of bananas are thrown away by farmers because they don’t fit supermarket standards.  Similarly restrictions on the size of pineapples is hurting farmers and the environment. 

On moral and environmental grounds, rejecting fruit on aesthethic grounds - decided by whom??  -- cannot be justified. Please display leadership and turn around this disgraceful trend.
