The drive to reduce food waste calls for major improvements to be made to the existing expiration dates scheme. Faced with a' best by' or' sale by' date, most people have felt the uncertainty and frustration and in many instances the solution to this frustration is to err on the side of caution and throw it away. To be more accurate,' a lot of cases' is equated with (or at least contributed to) an estimated 340 million tons of food lost in 2015 after global purchases.

An overhaul of the system of these dates to provide more consistency may help to minimize this form of food waste and according to guidelines laid down by the German Food Bank (Tafel Deutschland), the average expiry date for some items is much too conservative, with foods such as pasta and rice frequently edible for one year after the date on the box.

Even items such as eggs, in which a great deal of care is normally exercised, consumers may expect that they will be consumable for an additional 21 days.
