The shape of vegetables

A study from Edinburgh University finds that a third of farmed fruit and vegetables deemed too ugly to sell.

Meanwhile Lidl in the UK is trialling a damaged 5 kg veg box in selected stores to see if customers will be interested in this offer.

And there is the story from another small company has found the ugly side of ugly produce where it was contacted by a company that now makes a great profit from buying up ugly produce that might otherwise be sold cheaply in poor neighbourhoods or even donated to food banks.

Meanwhile here at Go Local Food our crop shares include fresh vegetables picked on the day without fear or favour with regard to shape but chosen just how they come because they are all edible.
