Back quickly to best-before dates (Sept 17 issue). Manjit Sokhal is trying to do the decent thing. "We do sometimes eat out-of-date stuff but there's only so much you can store." She considered giving it away, but of course, "Customers would quickly catch on." So now she's thinking of offering suitable items close to their best-before to her daughter's nursery and asking for a receipt so she can put it on her expenses. Sounds an excellent solution to me. Any more ideas out there?
