Safeway Informative - Rotting avocados - Produce/avacado
CHICO, CALIFORNIA -- In these times of consumer and economic hardship, I am continually disappointed when I watch large bins of avocados spoil as they remain at the high prices posted at Safeway. I am unclear as to why these ripening avocados could not be reduced and moved into the community, rather than sitting and rotting at $1.50 ea. I know this produce is a high commodity However I have seen them at roadside stands for much less, rather than throw them out. Avocados are a healthy resource for people and should not be wasted because of over pricing.
Please consider lowing the prices of overly ripe avocados so that consumers and Safeway can take advantage of this delicious, healthy fruit. It's a WIN/WIN conclusion.
