Confusing Expiration Date? Industry is planning to make changes

Every food product has an expiration date. Perishables expire faster than the normal food products. But confusing expiration dates on food packets lead us to throw away food even before it’s expired.

To reduce the amount of food wastage, the food industry has decided to make some changes.

The labels will now be officially cut down to “use by” and “best if used by”. The “use by” label indicates that the food products usually perishables should be thrown out before that date. And the “best if used by” indicates that even though the quality of food has decreased it’s still safe to eat the product.
