Report: Pilot store for expired/damaged food to open in Boston


Boston – Doug Rauch, former president of Trader Joe’s, reportedly plans to open a pilot store that will charge reduced prices for food that is damaged or expired, but still safe to eat. According to the Boston Globe, The Daily Table will open in the urban Dorchester neighborhood of Boston during 2014 and offer services that are a mix of features offered in supermarkets and restaurants.

The store will focus on products whose expiration date does not match the actual date when they spoil or otherwise become unsafe for consumption. Reportedly some observers are concerned the idea basically provides underprivileged consumers with products other consumers don’t want.
