Andrew George welcomes plans to scrap ‘display until’ & ‘sell by’ dates

Posted on: 19th September 2011

Andrew George MP, Chair of the Liberal Democrat Defra Team in the Commons, has welcomed new advice from Defra Ministers calling for ‘display until’ and ‘sell by’ dates to be scrapped to help cut waste.

Mr George said:

“Anything which is clearer, saves money, and prevents waste has to be a good thing. The British Retail Consortium is also correct that the public want clear advice on food safety and storage.

“The next thing has to be getting rid of all of the complex small print about nutrition and go for a simple traffic light system for salt, sugar, and fat.”
