Lidl To Sell 5kg 'Wonky Veg' Boxes For £1.50

5kg Veg Boxes For £1.50 @ Lidl

Great news for shoppers today, as Lidl* have announced that they will be selling big 5kg 'wonky' fruit and veg boxes at a price of only £1.50!

It's a trial to be run in selected stores only, and we think it will be a huge hit with bargain hunters everywhere.

The announcement from the store states:

"A fruitful idea for cutting food waste: we're trialling new 5kg boxes of fruit and veg that is slightly damaged, but still perfectly good to eat, for just £1.50.

It's being piloted in 122 of our stores, so if you come across any, let us know what you think."

This is such a large amount of fruit and veg for the price, and although it might not look all pretty and perfect, no one is going to see the difference when it's all chopped up in a stew, salad or soup. I'm hoping to get a box to encourage my kids to try some new veggies too.

Lidl haven't released a list of the 122 stores that will be stocking the veg boxes, but we're hoping that it will extend to all stores soon.

    Apparently they have decided to make this available in all stores from Monday! That's according to a comment from some one on another feed that had supposedly called Lidl customer services. £1.50? A bag of pasta, a bag of cous cous, some beans and a box of cereal. The weekly food shop done! Soup and veg stew every day! :joy:

  • Mandy C.

    Brilliant idea, I’d buy it xx

  • Sinéad L.

    Sounds good but is the farmer getting squeezed even further? They can't produce it for that amount.

  • Verity R.

    Lidl at Pontivy already does this . A wooden box for 1 euro. So you can recycle box as kindling as well. Xx

  • Liz L.

    Wonky veg is usually rejected by most supermarkets therefore costing the farmer more money in wasted crops, so this should help a lot

  • Antonia P.

    Fantastic idea, what matters is the taste not the looks.

  • Fiona S.

    Great idea - will need to keep an eye out for these - means more cooking !! Lol

  • Laura G.

    Oooh will have to have a look x

  • Emma P.

    Perfect for feeding my herd! Xx
