Every third fruit is just thrown out: they are too "ugly" that to sell them!

What advantage from them on dumps?

According to researches, more than a third of the fruit and vegetables which are grown up in farms never get on shelves of supermarkets as they are deformed or have the wrong size, BBC writes.

In a research of the University of Edinburgh was revealed that more than 50 million tons of the fruit and vegetables which are grown up in Europe are annually just thrown out.

It partly because they didn't meet expectations of consumers. The research has been published in the Cleaner Production magazine.

It has considered loss of food and waste within European Economic Area and has analysed how many food is thrown out every year before it reaches the place of sale.

Researchers attributed losses to strict state norms, high standards of supermarkets and also expectations of clients how production has to look.

They have also found out that farmers who concluded contracts with supermarkets, as a rule, grew up more, than it is necessary that they nevertheless managed to sell the most part.

Researchers have assumed that increase in awareness of consumers and the movement to sustainable development of trade can promote sale more, so to say, "ugly" vegetables and fruit. Stephen Porter from School of science at the University of Edinburgh has told

about Earth: "People have to be less captious how their fruit and vegetables look. It can reduce considerably waste and reduce impact of production of food on climate". Some supermarkets and shops have even begun a campaign for encouragement of consumption of the "spoiled" bananas and avocado.

Is valid, many who notice at least couple of spots on banana - throw out it at once. do you agree

A there are less nice vegetables and fruit?
