Having worked at both these stores (on the meat counter) I seen nothing new in the program, the one most coman this that goes on is the 15minute rule being totally disgregarded. This is when the fridges are being restocked and the staff have 15 minutes to get the tolly unloaded into the display fridges, or it has to go back int the storage fridge. This never really happens, food could be sitting for up 2 an hour before it refrdgerated again. Also to do with sell by dates the staff are often encouraged to keep waste to a minimum.
There are many other stories I could tell you but I won't, thats y i never buy my meat from a supermarket, go to a much higher quality family butcher which is cheaper.
