Said We Loved You, But We Lied

Not Not perfect, ugly produce, has the same nutritional value as picture-perfect produce–and it’s less-expensive.  In the recent past, cheaper, ugly produce was all the rage.

According to a recent Associated Press article, several major food store chains have stopped selling blemished produce, because, “there has not been as much customer demand as hoped. They were worried, “the cheaper produce could cannibalize sales of regular produce.”

Less expensive, blemished produce would be ground up, cooked, canned–sold to food banks.

Did this mean, ugly food was OK, as long as it was kept out of sight? Out of mind? Or, as long as it didn’t cut into profit margins?
