South African shops salvaging 'expired' goods

Supermarkets across the world have often been accused of letting their out-of-date products go to waste, although many are taking steps to try and combat this problem.

In Denmark earlier this year, Europe's first "sell-by" supermarket opened, selling products that are past their sell-by dates but still perfectly edible.
