These dates refer to quality rather than food safety. Foods with a ‘best before’ date should be safe to eat after the ‘best before’ date, but they may no longer be at their best.

– To extend the life of food beyond its date, freeze it before the date and defrost and use within 24 hours.
– Providing eggs are cooked thoroughly, they can be eaten a day or two after their ‘best before’ date.
