Do you know the difference between Best Before dates and Use By dates? Best before is literally that, it is still suitable and safe to eat or use but companies are obligated to put a date on products. Use by items are completely different and will deteriorate after the stamped date, so unsafe to consume etc.
Approved Food are a company that bring a massive amount of best before date products to the public at reduced prices. I thought I would try them in the hope of stocking up on some bits for the weeks leading up to Halloween. The money saved will go towards our party so it doesn’t feel like I am pulling out additional budget.
When our parcel arrived I was delighted with everything inside. I had ordered ordinary everyday items such as kitchen paper and toilet rolls which obviously don’t have a shelf life.
After letting the girls loose on the website too we ended up ordering bits and pieces to go towards Halloween and lots of treats. The chocolate is always good value and the likes of crisps and drinks are great to stock up on as they really do not deteriorate for a long time after their best before date. Bulk buying is a great way to stock up if you know times are tight or you cant leave the house too.
The website is set into sections of Bargains, Latest, Grocery, Alcohol etc so you are not scrolling through masses of items if you are looking for something specific. With over 7 million tons of food and drink thrown away in the UK every year this site is the perfect solution to helping to do a little towards bringing that amount down. Customers save on average £60 a month on their shop too so saving money as well as the environment gets a huge thumbs up from us!
