    About time too. The amount of perfectly edible food thrown away in the UK is criminal.

    If it doesn't open the fridge door and walk out on its own, it is fine to eat.

    Strange, isn´t it ? One of the few things that Juan Peron ever said that made sense was that “each year Argentines throw away enough food to feed another nation”.
