Food waste and Date labelling: Factors determining the durabilityof refrigerated foods
Responsible organisation
2017 (English)Other (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
Abstract [en]

Date labelling has been part of a Nordic project on reducing food waste. The project was part of the Nordic Prime Ministers’ green growth initiative, contributing to circular economy work. Focus has been on how to improve the use and understanding of date labelling of foods in order to reduce food waste in the Nordic countries without challenging food safety. This publication is based on the project report Food waste and date labelling: Issues affecting the durability. Mappings undertaken has led to recommendations on restricted use of Use by- labelling, on harmonization for lower storage temperatures for perishable products, on oxygen free packaging for fresh meat  and on the need for guidance on date labels to reach out  better among stakeholders and consumers. A Nordic standpoint is that date labelling of eggs should be regulated like any other food.
