Major change as the Co-op is scrapping ‘use by’ dates on a popular product
The Sun says a MAJOR supermarket is to scrap use-by dates on yogurts within weeks in a bid to reduce food waste.
The Co-op will remove the dates on own-brand yogurts, and replace it with a “best before” date in what it says is an industry first.
Many shoppers are confused about the difference between “use-by” and “best-before” dates, and could be throwing food away unnecessarily as a result.
“Use-by” dates are the most important to pay attention to. These are about product safety and the Foods Standards Agency says you shouldn’t eat, cook or freeze food and drink past this date.
