No ‘best be­fore’

Country Smallholding - - July News -

Su­per­mar­ket gi­ant Tesco is re­mov­ing best be­fore dates from its pack­ag­ing in an ef­fort to cut down on waste. The chain is re­mov­ing the dates from nearly 70 fruit and veg­etable lines. It fol­lows a cam­paign by the Na­tional Fed­er­a­tion of Women’s In­sti­tutes (NFWI) into causes of food waste which found that less than half of re­spon­dents un­der­stood the mean­ing of ‘Best Be­fore’ dates.
