Several officials have demanded changes to the current expiration dates scheme listed on food items to reduce the waste.

Many of us are surveying the' best before' or' selling by' date listed on the boxes of food items. And as soon as the date passes we just throw as a precaution the item off. Sure, many of us are guilty of throwing away edibles that have been discarded as they are past their expiry dates.

But do you know that this contributes significantly to an estimated 340 million tons of food which is wasted globally after purchase?

Advocates of the food saving campaign say customers will be more conscious of the dates listed on the food items. In this link, the German Food Bank has explained that the expiry date on many of these products is much too restrictive. For example, food items such as pasta and rice are edible for a year, beyond their date of sale.

Even products like eggs and butter can be consumed for another 21 days after their expiry date.
