The survey conducted by Approved Foods found that 1 in 4 were wasting food that was safe to eat.

It was also found that people were under the impression that food approaching or on its 'best before' date were too risky to eat.

The wastage was largely down to confusion regarding food labelling and what it actually stands for.

Best Before

The 'Best Before' is more about quality rather than safety, if the food passes this date it isn't harmful but may lose its flavour and texture.

Use By

This label would appear on food which would go off quickly, this includes smoked fish, meat products and read-prepared salads. Using food after this date could be a health risk.

Sell By

This would be an instruction for staff at the store rather than shoppers and instructs them when to remove an item from a shelf.
