How long can you store food in the fridge?



Keeping food waste to a minimum is a battle every household has to struggle with. A use-by date is great, but you know once you’ve opened a package, things often won’t last as long as that promises. The information below should help you judge how long you have to use a range of food types after the package has been opened.


Of course, you always have to be careful when it comes to food. These values are meant as a guideline only. Always check and smell your food. If there’s any sign of spoilage or something doesn’t smell quite right, throw it away.
