LOVE FOOD HATE WASTE...
DID YOU KNOW?
One third of the food produced globally goes to waste. This is a problem that impacts us environmentally, socially and financially. In the UK 10 Million tonnes of food is wasted every year, help us make a difference.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?
Best Before Dates, Use By Dates, what do all the different numbers mean.
Use By Date is the one that you need to pay attention to, it is the one that is placed on perishable foods and could make you unwell if consumed after that date. You can eat these foods right up to that date or you can freeze them for a time afterwards (if suitable); such foods generally include meat and fish.
Best Before is the date that food will generally be at its best, after this the food is safe to eat but might just not be at its best. Chocolate, crisps and biscuits can last for as long as 6 months past the best before date; it Is best to store them in an air tight container after opening as they may go soft.
