Tesco removes best before dates on fruit and veg in bid to reduce food waste

Tesco has announced plans to remove best before dates from almost 70 fruit and vegetable products in an effort to reduce the amount of usable food being thrown away.

Best before labels will be removed from popular lines such as apples, potatoes, tomatoes, lemons and other citrus fruit and onions, among others.

The Food Standards Agency states that “the best before date is about quality and not safety. The food will be safe to eat after this date but may not be at its best.”

Many customers assess their fruit and vegetables by the look of the product rather than the ‘Best Before’ date code on the packaging.
