About Use By and Best Before Dates

Food products in Australia are required to display a “Best Before” or a “Use By” date if the shelf life is less than 2 years. A “Use By” date is a date after which consuming the product might be harmful because of fading quality, especially if some ingredients have a short safe shelf life. It often applies to meats and other foods requiring refrigeration. A food product may not be sold past the Use By date.

A “Best Before” date, on the other hand, suggests the date when a product is at it’s peak freshness. But consuming the product after that date is not dangerous at all, and you will probably not even notice a difference.
