FYI :   ‘use by’ dates, = ‘food must be eaten or thrown out by this date’

‘best before’ dates mean that ‘foods are still safe to eat after this date as long as they are not damaged, deteriorated or perished’.

  1. Great tips guys! Here’s something I wrote on the topic a while back: http://shapeofthingstocome.org/2012/05/29/trash-the-food-waste/

    I’m finding it trickier here in Lima than I was in Hobart as I can’t compost at all (though we’re trying to find a bokashi-type system when me move to a bigger place with a balcony) and I don’t have freezer-space for storing scraps for stocks or cupboard space for preserves. 😦

    That said, cooking creatively means most everything gets used up, and sensible shopping reduced the amount of waste.
