I bought wonky veg potatoes in my local Morrison's on Monday.5 kg for£2. The assistant told me they were selling them in response to the war on waste programme and that they would be donating their waste food to homeless shelters from next year.

I have seen the wonky veg in Morrison's but I don't think it is being sold on a level playing field with the other goods. I looked at getting the carrots but they were only being sold in 2.5 kg bags not so good when there are only 2 of you. The onions were priced at just a little bit more than the ones that were on this weeks special offer. Call me cynical but I get the feeling that Morrison's are just paying lip service to this so they can say they have reacted to Hugh's war on waste

Wonky Veg is their way of marketing it to the middle classes. They don't want to sell it loose, so poor people can choose the amount they want and buy it .... can't have poor people seen in the shop, that wouldn't do at all. The objective is to sell the Wonky Boxes to the middle classes, who then wander along to the booze aisle and buy a small case of champers (for the weekend) as well as a few carefully placed high margin/expensive other desirable items.
They want to talk the talk, not walk the walk ..... they'll be gone if the sales of high end wines doesn't increase.
