A few days ago in Hamburg, Germany the Edeka supermarket emptied all their shelves from all foreign products with only handful left produced in Germany. At first look is seemed like the supermarket had forgotten to restock, but it all made sense when customers saw the mysterious signs left around the store.
“So empty is a shelf without foreigners” read one and “This shelf is quite boring without variety,” read another.
In this rather controversial move, selling only German food for a day, the supermarket wanted to make a very strong statement about diversity and racism. Only with products from other countries a true diversity can be achieved, something that all customers value.
What do you think? Did Edeka manage to make a valid point?
