The EU Causes Food Waste and Starvation

Dr Vernon Coleman MB ChB DSc FRSA

The EU is one of the major causes of starvation in the world today.

It is the major cause of food waste.

How can I say this?

Because its absurd insistence on every item of food being labelled with a `sell by date’, a `use by date’ or a `best before date’ results in vast amounts of food being thrown away when it is still perfectly safe to be eaten.

It is now widely recognised that these daft labels are often absurdly over-cautious. But the eurocrats insist that just about every item of food has a label.

(We will know they have gone completely bonkers when they start insisting that packets of salt carry a `use by date’.)
