This updated cheese guidance (Publication date April 2018, updated August 2023) is to help supply chain businesses identify and implement actions that encourage consumers to reduce their household food waste.

It covers advice and insights on date labelling, storage, changes to products, packaging design and retail.

Top actions for consumer waste prevention:
  • Review products to ensure the right date label, open life and freezing advice is displayed.
  • Remove open life on hard cheeses.
  • Include Love Food Hate Waste (LFHW) tips and other communications.
  • Make consumer waste prevention one of the focuses of new product development/product innovations.
