It really frustrates me when i see food being wasted because it cannot be “sold”. Yes it can, it can be used preserves, distillation, integrated into other foods and recipes. The problem is that farmers aren’t equipped to handle those kinds of logistics for surplus of foodstuffs and the government should be stepping in to make it happen where nothing goes to waste, and excess food can also be redistributed to those that need it.
Just as an example avocado can be used in baked goods, salsas, drinks, cosmetics, oils, etc. so it seems disingenuous to say that there really is no demand and that the excess is just being discarded.
