Carrots in plastic bags vs well done Booths.
Buying vegetables wrapped in plastic is a real bug bear of mine. Big supermarkets wash carrots within an inch of their life and heavily soaked in water bag them in plastic. Watching the supermarket shelf stackers load them in place it can be seen the amount of water in the packs as the carrots sweat and the water condenses behind the plastic. The customers wonder why they have to throw the carrots away a few days later when they go rotten. In the days we are trying to cut down waste, as I said, Its a real bug bear of mine.
Well done Booths selling carrots as they should be sold.
