Stockpile Storage Times

Deal Score0

Now that you have started to build a stockpile it is important that you use up products before they expire.It is best to stick with the First In, First Out method. This way your products are being rotated efficiently and nothing goes to waste.

Most grocery items are labeled with a “Best Before” or “Sell By” date. These dates are there to provide a date for optimum freshness. These Best Before dates DO NOT mean that your product is no longer usable. It just means it may not taste or work the best after this date.

Now if a product is labelled as “Expired By”, that generally means that the product may no longer be safe to use after this date. These products should be discarded in time.

We will cover guidelines for storing at room temperature, in the fridge and in the freezer.
