Reducing food waste is hugely important to us, so we try to make the use-by dates for recipes as clear as possible. You can find out how many days you have to cook your meals by looking at the confirmation email that we send you the day before your delivery is due, or checking the menu.
Lots of people find it helpful to check the use-by dates on the menu when making their recipe choices so that they can plan ahead. Have a look by interacting with any recipe title in the Choose Recipe page.
'Use within X–Y days' refers to the number of days you will have from the day your box arrives to cook a recipe.
This is just a guide to help make sure you have enough time to cook all of your recipes. The digest email that you receive before your box arrives will tell you the Best Before date of each of your recipes.
Many products are clearly marked with their own use-by dates - please refer to these as your first port of call.
