Re: Coop caught selling old meat as new

The Kassensturz has done some more digging and - surprise, surprise - found lots of witnesses who confirm that repacking or simply marinating about-to-expire meat is a common practice in COOPs all over the country.

The less meat was thrown away, the more bonus did the managers get.
Talk about mis-guided bonus-objectives...

Except for minced meat, cold cuts and sausages (which, I'm hoping no one has any illusions about, contain the meat that really no-one wanted to buy), there's IMO no reason meat couldn't be sold a couple of days or even a week after the "best use before" date.
Just not at the full price.
