THE government is considering introducing fines for households who throw away ‘too much’ food.
Spain is the seventh worst offender in Europe for throwing away food, according to an EU report.
On average, every Spanish home bins 76 kilos of food (€250). Now the government is considering measures to curb the waste, similar to those already in place in Belgium and France.
Tighter restrictions on food disposed of by supermarkets is also up for discussion.
