The restaurant that serves up rejected food

Rub & Stub restaurant in Copenhagen is battling against waste - by serving up food that the supermarkets won't sell.

The restaurant offers meals made from vegetables and fruit rejected by the food industry because of sell-by dates and over-buying.

The restaurant has two paid employees - a project manager and head chef - but all the other staff are volunteers. It is funded by Danish charity Retro and profits go towards development projects in Sierra Leone.

Chef Ditte Jensen told BBC News why she believes it is possible to make delicious meals from rejected food.
