Help Us Avoid Food Waste
According to a recent report by Second Harvest, more than half of all food produced in Canada is lost or wasted! Many falsely assume that if the best-before date on a product has passed, it means the product has gone bad—but this isn’t the case with the kind of shelf-stable products we sell at FAIR/SQUARE.
Best-before dates are actually more of a suggestion than a strict guideline. According to Health Canada, the best-before date on most packaged goods indicates the time after which the product may lose some of its freshness, flavour or nutritional value.
