When you pick up a box of cereal or a carton of eggs, it might say any one of these: "Sell by," "Display until," "Best before," or "Use by."

The actual expiration date — when the food is no longer safe to eat — is often difficult to figure out.

To clear that up, 50 of the world's biggest food and retail companies — including
 Campbell, Walmart, Kellogg, and Nestl
é — are changing their expiration labels exclusively to "Use by" by 2020. 
The food retailers, which are part of the
 
Consumer Goods Forum Board
 (CGFB), voted unanimously on the change September 20.


The board determined that confusing labeling is one of the leading causes of food waste around the world, since consumers might be unsure if a particular item still okay to eat. In the US, an estimated 40%
of food that is bought is thrown out. Globally, about 1.3 billion tons of food
are wasted, which contributes 3Reasons To Go Against The Flow Hive 8% of annual greenhouse gases.
