The Food Labelling Regulations 1996
These notes give guidance on when to give a Best Before date on food labels. They also describe
how use by dates should be indicated. These notes offer informal, non-statutory guidance. They should not be taken as a definitive statement or interpretation of the law, which only the courts can give.
The Food Labelling Directive (2000/13/EEC) requires most prepacked foodstuffs to carry a date of minimum durability. This will normally be a best before date, which is the date up to and including which the foodstuff will retain its optimum condition (eg it will not be stale).
The Directive also requires that a use by rather than a best before date should be used on those prepacked foods ‘which, from the microbiological point of view, are highly perishable and are therefore likely after a short period to constitute an immediate danger to human health’.
