Pre Peeled Bananas Draw Complaints

Billa supermarket chain, which owns stores in nine European countries and has a slogan that promotes common sense, found itself being criticized for selling ‘pre peeled‘ bananas. Yes, pre peeled, as in no slipping on a banana peel because there isn’t one. I know we have all struggled for hours on end trying to peel a banana (they can be so difficult sometimes, he says smiling). The bananas are peeled, put on a cardboard tray and wrapped in cellophane.

Complaints were mostly about wasteful and unnecessary packaging. In Australia, where the bananas are sold, Greenpeace says it’s madness to peel a banana, which is already an easy to open ready packed food, to using environmentally unfriendly plastic. The supermarket change has since decided to let Mother Nature package the bananas and they’ll just sell them.
