Start Best before code dating

Best before code dating

‘Best if used by’, aka ‘best before’ dates are recommended use dates as determined by the manufacturer to get the highest quality version of the product, but are not aligned to food safety dates as ‘use by’ and ‘sell by’ dates are.

The date is in no way intended to be a food safety date.

And knowing what shelf-life dates mean is the first step in cutting food waste.

Believe it or not, food dating is only required by the U. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety & Inspection Service (FSIS) in the United States for baby infant formula and some baby foods, in the form of a ‘use by’ date.

However, many states have no food dating regulations at all.
