The Government has introduced new guidelines to help with the growing food waste problems in the country during this pandemic. The organisation WRAP has outlined further information instructing food companies, organisations and charities to “look beyond the Best Before date.”




The director of WRAP, Peter Maddox said  “Food businesses are doing an incredible job ensuring that food which cannot be sold at this time moves around the supply chain to feed people, and isn’t wasted. Our guide will help by giving clear advice on how best to redistribute food that’s exceeded the Best Before date. The law states that all food with a Best Before date can be sold, redistributed and consumed after that date, as long as it’s still good quality, but we appreciate that isn’t understood by all, or universally implemented. So, our aim is to make this common practice.”
