Lidl To Sell 5kg 'Wonky Fruit & Veg' Boxes For £1.50 In All Stores

Great news for shoppers today, as Lidl* have announced that they are now selling their big 'Too Good To Waste' 5kg 'wonky' fruit and veg boxes at a price of only £1.50 in all their stores, following a successful trial at the end of 2018.

The boxes are now available in all Lidl UK stores, so that bargain hunters everywhere will be able to get their fill of fruit and veg.

Today's announcement from the store states:

"After a very fruitful trial, our Too Good To Waste* fruit and vegetable boxes are now available in all our stores across England, Scotland and Wales.

At just £1.50 the boxes contain approximately 5kg of fruit and vegetables from our store shelves, whihc have become slightly damaged, discoloured or deteriorated, but are still perfectly good to eat.

They are put together daily by our dedicated in-store Freshness Specialists, and are available to customers from opening until midday, at which point, any leftover boxes are given to local good causes through our surplus food redistribution programme, Feed It Back.

This initiative is not only helping to tackle food waste in store, it's also helping you, our customers, make even more savings."

Lidl Too Good To Waste 5kg fruit and vegetable boxes

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.

                          Brilliant idea! More supermarkets should most definitely follow suit! Not only does it cut down waste but also makes fruit and veg so much more affordable to all! We eat healthier we stay healthier!

                                        great idea if you can get them,but im guessing all the smaller independent shops around my area will be buying them to sell on at a profit.

                                          I wish more supermarkets would do this and even more so wish our local ones would participate!!
