Interesting measure, I must say.

The West could adopt this idea as well. Food waste is a plague.

China Adopts Law on Preventing Food Waste

In Xinhua.net.

BEIJING, April 29 (Xinhua) -- Chinese lawmakers on Thursday voted to adopt an anti-food-waste law at a session of the National People's Congress (NPC) Standing Committee.

The law will go into effect on the date of promulgation.

According to the law, catering service providers could charge customers who leave excessive amounts of food waste a disposal fee, but rates for the charge must be clearly advertised.

Approximately 18 billion kg of food is wasted every year in China's urban catering industry, according to a report based on nationwide field research carried out by NPC deputies.

The country also sees over 35 billion kg of grain loss at pre-consumption stages including storage, transportation and processing, said the report.

Sounds like one of those fake virtue signalling laws that amounts to nothing in reality when people are eating only twice a day in most of China and your dog is not safe, actually your child is not safe there.

I can still remember Philip Dack singing this a school and everybody laughing.

On top of spaghetti all covered with cheese
I lost my poor meatball when somebody sneezed
It rolled off the table, it rolled on the floor
And then my poor meatball rolled out of the door

It rolled in the garden and under a bush
And then my poor meatball was nothing but mush.
The mush was as tasty as tasty could be,
And early next summer it grew to a tree.

The tree was all covered with beautiful moss
It grew great big meatballs and tomato sauce.
So if you eat spaghetti all covered with cheese,
Hold on to your meatball and don't ever sneeze.

PRC does get things done when it wants to. It has built a vast network of high speed rail, something which has defeated the US and UK, and it is not remotely capable of feeding itself. Famines have been an issue throughout Chinese history, although the recent ones were man (or Maoist) made.

I was going to say the same thing. What the CCP wants to happen, happens. I can't wait to see it their yet-to-be-announced obesity prevention program will be as successful as Mao's successful and short-lived war on drugs.
