The two biggest supermarkets in Australia are amping up technology to turn away shoplifters, on the other hand, they have both reached all-time high annual profits. However, it is hard for people like you and me to feel bad for these supermarkets when they are also throwing out an all-time high amount of goods that are still perfectly edible. This raises the question of why supermarkets are investing all of their resources into catching shoplifters instead of alleviating food waste, which may also help them generate more revenue.
