According to Love Food Hate Waste NZ, one third of food produced globally is wasted. That means 1.3 billion tonnes of food is never eaten!
Part of the problem is conservative “Best Before” dates falling months or even years before the product is no longer safe to eat.
“Best Before” is a quality issue—you can eat food after this date, but it may not be at its best. Use your senses to check whether it’s safe to eat—if it looks okay, smells okay and tastes okay, then you can eat it.
Here at Mediterranean Foods Wholesale, we HATE food waste. Check this page for heavily discounted prices on product that is approaching or has recently reached its Best Before date. Dig in and help prevent food waste!
