Food Dates Explained
The amount of edible food tossed in the trash because of a date on a package is tragic, especially if you try to square the figure with the number of hungry families in the nation. Lewisco Holdings strives to minimize this waste and extend usable goods to buyers that can use them.
The dates that you see on foods are established by the individual companies, not the FDA. In fact, the only category of food that requires dating is baby formula. The dates on most food are arbitrary and indicate an estimated peak of freshness rather than a point of inedibility.
You’ll see various commentary above the date on the package. The phrase indicates how the company views the date, and this date is always an estimate because so many factors go into freshness and quality of food goods.
- Sell by date – Indicates the time when the store should remove goods from display.
- Best if used by date – Indicates peak freshness, not safety.
- Freeze-by date – Indicates the point at which freezing is necessary to retain the best quality.
- Use by date – Indicates the point at which quality may begin to diminish, but it doesn’t indicate safety (except for baby formula).
Bear in mind that the user can generally tell when products are safe to consume. Smell, appearance, and taste are the best indications of whether food should be eaten.
Lewisco Holdings Is a Primary Liquidation Provider
Brand protection is built into the liquidation process; our buyers are distinctly separate from the primary line of customer channels. All manufacturer restrictions rule the resale, and we provide repackaging with our own private label, Mabel’s Farms, when required.
The liquidation process that we provide is fast. We provide a speedy offer, payment, and pickup, with little effort required by the client.
Lewisco Holdings is a liquidation buyer rather than a trader or a broker.
The numerous warehouses that we have throughout the continental United States makes redistribution speedy. Liquidation goods have a ticking clock.
