Halloween Waste

Carved Pumpkin

Four days ago I wrote about a report that about a third of all food bought in theis country is wasted. I read today, in Speciality Food Magazine that Halloween is now the most lucrative trading period after Christmas and Easter. The irony is that ASDA alone has sold 80,000 more pumpkins this year than last. A 172% increase. By my reckoning that means they have sold ...well, lots. I think it works out to about 126,000.

That must be at least 750,000 bowls of soup! What a waste
