Supermarkets are offering customers secret “magic bags” that can let you enjoy a delicious steak dinner for as little as £3.

In an effort to tackle food waste, many stores are offering mystery bags of unsold food at bargain prices through the Too Good to Go app.

Clever diagrams feature in Channel 4’s Food Unwrapped, highlighting how the Co-op version sometimes includes steaks that would normally cost much more.

Under the program, the amount of carbon dioxide emitted from food waste, if calculated in the same way as a country, would be the third-largest producer of greenhouse gases after the US and China.

However, supermarkets are doing what they can to cut food waste through a series of plans and initiatives.

The first line of defense is the discount section, where products that are about to expire are suddenly discounted.

But Co-Op partnered with the “Too Good To Go” app, which allows users to buy unsold food from top eateries to avoid having them thrown away.

The app has more than 39 million users who can buy food at huge discount prices.

Channel 4 host Kate Quilton has put together a bag for a customer in the discount food section that will constitute dinner for one app user, although that will remain a mystery until They come to get their food.

A customer came to pick up her food and received bread, sausage, ground meat and steak for £3.09.

“It won’t go to waste and it’s cheaper for me,” she said.

Another customer said: “I have a couple of teenagers and they are quite expensive.”

When asked if she feels good about saving food from the bin, she added: “Yes, and it’s cheap.”

However, later in the show, it was revealed that the biggest culprits of food waste were not supermarkets at all.

In fact, it is consumers who waste tons of food every year.

It equates to 6.6 million tons of food wasted every year.
