At Morrisons we understand how important the issue of unsold food is both environmentally and socially. We also know that this is something that really matters to our customers - which is why we have a number of policies and procedures in place to tackle this issue.
In our stores, one of the ways we minimise the level of food waste by discounting it before it can no longer be sold or using it in our own canteens. If any food is left unsold, that is still safe to eat, it is donated by our stores to local community groups and charities. The small percentage of edible food in Morrisons stores that is wasted is currently used to produce energy rather than going to landfill.
