Waste disposal by organized (?) food retailers in India

Organized retail's underbelly exposes missing responsibility . A timely and relevant article in MINT.

Most of large food retailers in India exhibit the civic sense of a hawker . The singleminded pursuit of profits seems to make them oblivious to the impact on the environment and society . Besides the issue of waste disposal retailers can make a significant impact by developing a mechanism to predict waste / make a calculated judgement . Such products can be given to the needy well in time for it to be safe and healthy to consume. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) for retailers need not be a separate activity divorced from their daily business .
