Don't dump food you fools

In the ODT, "Kiwifruit growers are to destroy a million trays, or 3.6m kg, of green export fruit as global demand slumps."

Seems like a big waste of kai just to keep the prices up. Why not make some jam or chutney, and give it to the soup kitchens or the Sally Army for the increased numbers of homeless and struggling people out there? Why waste it!

Ae. This suggestion makes sense. Why oh why ... don't they? It would make for great PR if they did.

True - plus lots of great kiwifruit jam and chutney - yum
