Gorenje welcomes decision to scrap use-by dates
Gorenje, the Slovenian manufacturer famed for its creative and innovative appliances, welcomes the decision by food manufacturers to scrap use-by dates on some products.
Around £10 billion worth of food is dumped every year, and it is estimated that each household throws away £400 of food a year, with many consumers disposing of meals, drinks, and fruit and vegetables that are still fit to eat. By removing use-by dates, it is hoped that some of this waste will be cut down, with consumers keeping food for longer.
In order to prevent unnecessary food wastage, it is vital that the consumer's fridge can maintain perishable items at optimum condition for as long as possible. Gorenje's wide range of built-in and freestanding refrigeration appliances offers a variety of features specifically designed with this in mind, including:
Gorenje's refrigeration range also boasts excellent energy ratings, with some models featuring an incredible A++ rating. Many models also include a five-year free parts and labour guarantee for added peace of mind.
Ruth Ferguson, Marketing Manager of Gorenje, says: "Food waste is a forgotten contributor to greenhouse gases and CO2 production, so Gorenje works hard to ensure that its refrigeration range helps consumers save money and protect the environment by preserving the quality of produce for as long as possible. Removing use-by dates will encourage consumers to think more before they throw food away, and so is a positive development that will benefit all."
