Paris tries to cut food waste - G7 summit in Bavaria
Business Brief 05/25/2015
G7 leaders are meeting with US President Donald Trump in Italy to press him on issues like terrorism and trade. Trump's stance on climate change has proven to be especially contentious.
France has become the world's first country to ban supermarket waste and compel large retailers to donate unsold food. While many charities hail the legislation, some worry about their capacity to handle the extra food.
