The report addresses how date labels are determined and applied with focus on reducing food waste in the Nordic countries. This was assessed through a survey and selected interviews with Nordic food manufacturers about their considerations when deciding the date label. Another objective has been to distinguish if there are differences in the way food safety authorities interpret legislation. The results from the study indicate that there are differences between the countries in terms of both the practice of guidelines and the shelf life of food.



Traceability of waste through the value chain

The literature shows a huge body of statistics and data on WEEE and plastics, both across the Nordic region and more generally across Europe. Invariably, different sources often contain slightly different information from different perspectives, using different definitions and assumptions, and establishing a coherent, reliable picture is rarely straightforward.
