Food Standards Agency

Important information below.
The best before date is about quality and the use-by date is about safety
This means you can eat food past its best before date but it may just be at its best. Don’t eat food past it’s use-by date because this could make you ill.
Help reduce food waste this Christmas by knowing the difference between use-by and best before.
