'Best If Used By' is the least confusing date label on food

'Best If Used By' is the least confusing date label on food | SAN ANTONIO XYZ | Scoop.it
And as date labels are reduced, the hope is that food waste will, too, because consumers will be in a better position to judge an item's edibility. This is part of the federal government's stated goal to cut food waste by 50 percent by 2030.
Al Cannistra's insight:

reducing food waste is becoming more critical as the population on planet earth is ever increasing - this is a good move but maybe it could be made even better by adding a second date that reads something like "won't kill you if used by"....    it may help folks not throw something out at midnight on the expiration date....

Sebastian Morales's curator insight, November 17, 11:55 PM
This article was very interesting and I learned a lot of new things about what goes into a hologram on stage. Holograms have been around for years and are advancing to CGI holograms and will only continue growing. 

this article was cited and written by KC Ifeanyi 

This is very resourceful for audio professionals because it shows what the future is coming to and even spark the idea to collaborate with an artist that is not alive anymore and perform a live show using a hologram.
