Francia se ha convertido en el primer país del mundo en prohibir a los supermercados tirar o destruir los alimentos que no se han vendido. El Gobierno galo fuerza así a las grandes superficies a donar estos productos a organizaciones benéficas y a los bancos de alimentos, informa The Guardian.
En virtud de una ley aprobada por unanimidad en el Senado francés, los responsables de los supermercados, de superficies de más de 400 metros cuadrados, se expondrán a una multa de 75.000 euros o dos años de cárcel si no cumplen la norma.
Los bancos de alimentos y las organizaciones benéficas, por su parte, están obligados a recoger y almacenar los alimentos en condiciones higiénicas y distribuirlos adecuadamente
