Marks & Spencer ditches ‘best before’ dates to help cut food waste

The store will axe the labels from 85 percent of commonly binned items, such as grapes, potatoes and broccoli.

Instead, staff will use a code to ensure quality and freshness is maintained.

M&S said research shows an estimated 6.6 million tonnes of food is scrapped each year.

Andrew Clappen, its director of food tech, said: “We need to do all we can to make sure none of it gets thrown away.”
