New Guidelines on Determining Shelf Life of Foods

July 05, 2016 at 3:06 PM

MPI has issued this updated guidance document to help food businesses to determine the shelf life of their food products and to apply the appropriate date marking. It provides useful information to assist operators preparing and handling foods for retail sale. Any legal requirements are shown in boxes with quotation marks. They are either directly quoted from the requirements (including any clause numbers) or are summarised when the requirement is too long to include completely.
