The country’s National Assembly unanimously voted in new laws that will force chains to donate discarded food to charity or allow it to be turned into animal feed, compost or energy.

Guillaume Garot, a Socialist politician who sponsored the bill, said: “It’s scandalous to see bleach being poured into supermarket dustbins along with edible foods.”

The Independent has reported on the issue that many people are happy with this new law as throwing away so much food is wasteful and could be used in so many other ways to help people.
