"And also after" … Associations want to rethink the expiry date

Consumers throw some products before the expiry date. – A. Gelebart / 20 Minutes / SIPA

A white paper against food waste. Associations and giants of the agribusiness publish this Monday their recommendations to fight against waste. One of the main proposals concerns
expiry dates.

On our packaging, the mention "to consume before", could soon be followed by "and also after", explains The Parisian. This proposal for the least sensitive products, such as biscuits and coffee packaging, is carried by the "Too good to go" anti-dusting application.

Trust his senses

The registration in supermarkets of the date of minimum durability (MDD) remains unclear for consumers: 53% of them say they do not understand this mention. "It's time for consumers to trust their senses: the visual, the smell and the taste of the product," says Lucie Basch, a former agricultural engineer behind Too Good to Go.

A quarter of consumers (25%) never consume their products once the date has passed. And 26% even throw the product before the use-by date. According to Lucie Basch, an extra day of "life" products would save 170,000 kg of products a year.
