Italy is set to pass a law that will make supermarkets donate their waste food to charities.
It will become the second European country to pass such laws after the French introduced a bill in February which bans supermarket throwing away or spoiling unsold food.
The bill has recieved widespread bipartisan support and is expected to pass the lower house of the parliament on Monday before a final vote in the Senate of the Republic.
Unlike France, which fines supermarkets found wasting food, Italy wants to give businesses incentives to donate food and help tackle the country’s €12bn waste problem.
