Letter: Supermarket waste

WE TAKE the issue of waste management extremely seriously ("Tesco store throwing away food", 19 February). We work closely with suppliers to ensure the minimum wastage whilst providing our customers with product availability. We are now conducting a trial in Manchester to give charities food near to sell-by dates and if successful will extend this to all our stores in the UK.
