Government study says £80m worth is discarded every year – sometimes simply because of a minor bruise or black mark
Britons routinely bin 1.4m edible bananas every day at a cost of £80m a year, figures reveal.
A third of consumers (30%) admit to discarding a banana if it has even a minor bruise or black mark on the skin. More than one in 10 (13%) also throw the fruit away if it shows any green on the skin.
