Boycott organizers want Loblaw to sign a code of conduct for grocery stores and commit to offering more affordable prices.

It's impossible to know whether many consumers will follow the movement and what the revenue loss will be for Loblaw, but Ms. Johnson hopes the boycott will also raise awareness among Canadians and attract the attention of governments.

For Torontonian Anne de Siqueira, Loblaw's change of heart on discounting foods nearing expiration shows that consumers can have leverage.
