Big W is slammed for throwing away a MOUNTAIN of unopened chocolate

Retail chain Big W has been slammed for throwing away a mountain of chocolate blocks before their used by date after a video of the ‘trash’ circulated online.

Footage of Cadbury, Old Gold, Lindt, 한게임머니상, https://www.moneyfriend777.com/, Kinder and Darrell Lea boxes and blocks in an industrial-sized rubbish bin outside the Chermside store, in , sparked outrage on Friday after Mika Tatjana posted it to ‘Tis the season to be jolly. Large W would rather throw away food than clearance it,’ she captioned the video.

Many of her followers were quick to suggest the industry had a lot to answer for in the way of waste, with plenty of supermarkets guilty of throwing away food at the end of the day.

‘As someone in this industry unfortunately this is nothing. We waste so much,’ one woman said.

‘I wish they could donate it,’ said another.

But some individuals were less worried about the chocolates, claiming that they were likely damaged and it would be illegal for Big W to sell it.

‘I worked for Woolies for 16 years, this is not always the fault of the store,’ one person said. ‘Recalls and withdrawals are common.’ 

Interestingly Big W responded to the criticism by saying there was a perfectly good reason these particular chocolates were dumped in the bin.

‘Big W works towards a zero waste policy and donates all excess goods to local charities,’ a spokesperson said. 

‘On the rare occasion that a product is not fit for donation or consumption, we do responsibly dispose of that product.

‘In this isolated case, a supply of chocolate in one of our stores in Queensland was deemed not fit for consumption, and therefore was disposed of.’

It’s not known why the chocolate was ‘not fit for consumption’ in this case.
