I walked into Woolworths in the Mall of Africa this afternoon, just in time to see the deli staff throw an entire plate of gorgeous pineapple pieces into the dustbin. This was followed instantly by an entire plate of gorgeous watermelon pieces, with a half a plate of grapes up next; and a full plate of chocolate, a full platter of chips, and a 3 quarter platter of cake – the latter 3 which I had just sampled – all headed for the bin.

Here’s how the conversation went :

  • “What do you think you are doing?”
  • “We need to wash the plates”
  • “Why are you throwing perfectly good food into the dustbin??”
  • “We have to”
  • “What are you talking about?”
  • “We have to throw all the food away every 4 hours”
  • “I beg your pardon?!  Why are you doing that?! Give it to the homeless!”
  • “We aren’t allowed to”
