‘UGLY PRODUCE’ TREND MAY HAVE LIMITS

Walmart and Whole Foods in recent years tried selling some blemished fruits and vegetables at a discount, produce they said might otherwise be trashed because it’s not quite the right size, shape or color. The two chains ended their test, suggesting dented apples and undersized potatoes may not be all that appealing. Some stores, like Hy-Vee and home delivery startups haven’t given up on the idea of selling less-than-perfect produce to reduce food waste and are seeing some success. (Associated Press)
