Spain cuts down on dairy waste

SPAIN is cutting down on unnecessary food waste by targeting yoghurt sell-by dates.

Pots of yoghurt will no longer need a sell-by date, instead showing a ‘recommended use-by’ date.

Ministers hope that by lifting the requirement for yoghurts to be sold within 28 days of their manufacture, the change will reduce unnecessary wastage.

The change of rules puts Spain on the same footing as many other countries which have already lifted the 28-day restriction.
