How the shelf life of the components determines the shelf life of the finished product?
EG. ingredients list:
A - 6 months shelf life
B - 9 months shelf life
C - 12 months shelf life
MIX and packing
PRODUCT (ABC)= D finished product 9 months shelf life ( on the label)
Is it all right from from a legal point of view??? DURING shelf life of FINISHED PRODUCT A ingredients will lost his expiry date?
WHAT SIMPLE RULES DO YOU USE IN YOUR PRACTICE IN FOOD INDUSTRY?
I know that:
- During a factory process we have to use ingredients which are not expired.
- For expiry date of the FINISHED PRODUCT manufacturer is responsible. After storage test , producer determines shelf life.
Have you got an industry experience? Maybe some guide?
I encourage to discussion (please use some example from practice).
PLS share what rules do you use when determing the shelf life.
