Up until recently, French supermarkets have not reduced food that is nearing it's sell-by date. Now there are half price, or less, offers on food with days left to the sell-by date. As a result, our food spend has reduced drastically :D.

The law of unintended consequences. The idea of the law was the food would be given free to the poor.... but instead, as you say, the French have suddenly discovered they can discount food.
