'3 For 2' Offers Create Unnecessary Food Waste, Norwegian Consumer Chief Says

The director of Norway's Forbrukerrådet (Consumer Council), Inger Lise Blyverket, has hit out at '3 for 2' offers in supermarkets, saying that they go against effort to reduce food waste.

In an interview with Nettavisen, Blyverket noted that retailers Rema 1000 and Coop Norge hold 3 for 2 offers 'on a regular basis', despite the Council advising retail chains that they wanted to see an end to such campaigns.

In Norway, edible food waste to the equivalent of 42 kilograms per person is thrown away every year.
