Grocery shoppers should use judgment, not best-before dates, due to serious food waste: expert
While a U.K. supermarket chain plans to remove best-before dates from nearly 500 products to tackle food waste, Canadians aren't yet ready to make those changes.
While I agree that food waste is a problem, I feel that best before dates help keep grocery chains honest. Buying a product that's on the edge is helping my budget. And sometimes I need to grab the item that has the longest date (I live alone).
