3 big trash bags full of bread being dumped outside the shop. What a waste! There are so many people starving out there
I believe at least one of those picking up buns from the trash bags is a Regular, the rest probably is just a passerby.
Cos he is well prepared, with trolley to take the buns away. But each trash bag can easily contain over 50 buns, why the old man need so many buns? Want to sell them away next day? or for own consumption?
Actually there was a huge outcries in the ST forum on dumping away food by bakeries and fast-food restaurants sometimes ago. and there was a similar thread over here
What do you think?
The bakeries cannot afford to sell the buns cheaper after certain hours, cos it will spoil the market and the customers may wait until the price drop then buy. (prevent the supply from exceeding demand.)
The bakeries cannot let the staff to bring back the buns cos the staff may want to take this advantage and make more buns towards the end of the day, so that they can bring back more buns.
The bakeries cannnot keep the buns till next day becos they are not fresh anymore, but unlike fast food, buns are something that can be kept for a few days and still edible, therefore those buns are still fit to be donated.
