But isn't this the same as burning fossil fuels when it comes to creating greenhouse gasses? I think I'd rather have rotten produce be consumed by new plants through composting than have it burned as a gas.

This food should never be left to rot!! i have seen good fresh food dumped in a dump master at the back off super markets and there is nothing wrong with it just because its one day old they chuck it out!!! this is so wrong when there are hundreds of people who live near by who could use this food who don't have the money to buy. i myself arranged with the manager of the bakehouse if it would be ok to pick some up for my horses and goats alpacas chucks and a few other animals not as a full meal just for a little treat i was shocked at how fresh that bread and cakes still where, and i did give some to people i knew who needed a little cake for there Kids Fresh doughnuts not one thing wrong with them, and they where on there way to the tip!! so many pensioners out there who cant afford to buy a loaf of bread and most certainty cant afford cake or biscuits, and yes i ate some too nothing wrong with them still in wrappers, they have to do something about this i for one would have no problem delivery the products still cant believe the wast of good food.

A great use for inedible food. Glad to see it also being tried in my neck of the woods.
