What do Morrisons do with out of date food?
Just like any other store, Morrisons will not sell out of date food.
There are a number of things Morrisons do to reduce the chance of food going to waste.
One of the things Morrisons does is reduce food nearing the end of it’s best before date. If you regularly shop in Morrisons, you may have noticed small sections of yellow label items around the store. Typically these sections can be found towards the ends of different isles. The food in these sections with yellow labels are reduced by varying amounts so that you can grab a bargain while also reducing the amount of food that is wasted.
Usually food gets reduced towards the end of the day so we highly recommend keeping an eye out for these bargains the next time you visit a Morrisons.
