What’s the difference between ‘expiry’ and ‘best before’ dates?

An expiry date tells you the last day the product is safe to eat. A best-before date tells you the last day recommended for the best flavor and quality.  

Food safety is a top priority for us. We work hard to ensure the safety of the food we distribute, and we support our member agencies in doing the same. For more details on food safety visit the Canadian Food Inspection Agency website.
