Fight Food WasteDid you know?

Every year in the UK over 7 million tonnes of food and drink is thrown away, a lot of which has past its ‘best-before’ date, but would still be perfectly good to eat.

A very small percentage of our stock is surplus and short-dated stock, that is Greek food & drink products near or just passed their BEST BEFORE date, which is available to our customers at incredibly low prices.

  • We do not sell anything past its USE BY date.
  • Quick & Easy online ordering – delivered directly to your door.

Shops are allowed to sell food after its best-before date has passed. Best-before dates are concerned with quality rather than safety, so it doesn’t mean that the food is dangerous if the date has passed.

Use By dates are about safety

A use-by date on food is about safety. This is the most important date to remember. Foods can be eaten until the use-by date but not after. You will see ‘use by’ dates on food that goes off quickly, such as meat & milk products or ready-to-eat salads.

Best Before dates are about quality

The best before date, sometimes shown as BBE (best before end), is about quality and not safety. The food will be safe to eat after this date but may not be at its best. Its flavour and texture might not be as good. Best-before dates appear on a wide range of foods including:

  • frozen foods
  • dried foods
  • tinned foods

Search for BEST BEFORE on the GreekMarket.co.uk search engine to find all eligible products on offer or simply go to our CLEARANCE section

The best-before date will only be accurate if the food is stored according to the instructions on the packaging.

Best-before dates are an indicative guide of when the quality of food or drink will start to change.

They are not to do with safety.

Fight Food Waste

Food that has passed its best-before date is safe to eat.

Best before should be considered a rough guide rather than a strict rule.

There is no reason to throw away food that goes past its best-before date, it is perfectly safe to eat and will often taste just as good.
