Dear (name of retailer) please start selling cosmetically imperfect produce.  We, your customers, do not want you to waste as much as 40% of all produce just because it looks different.  We love food and know that produce that may look a little different is still delicious and nutritious.  We do not want to see so much good produce go to waste while almost a billion people in the world are food insecure.  For more information on the "ugly" fruit and veg revolution around the world, and why this is so important to everyone, please visit www.UglyFruitAndVeg.org.

Thank you for considering this important step towards sustainability and a better, less wasteful, world.

Sincerely

(Your Name)
