Eat it, Cook it, Freeze it?
July 4, 2016
A recent report from the Food Standards Agency and DEFRA has revealed that an astonishing number of people don’t understand the difference between use by and best before dates. The misunderstanding is thought to contribute significantly to the 7 million tonnes of food that is unnecessarily discarded by consumers in the UK every year, and also to the alarming prevalence of food poisoning.
The same report highlights that many people don’t understand how their fridges and freezers can help prolong the useable life of their foods, which also contributes to food waste and food related illnesses.
