Hi all,

A client in the states asks me to write an internal code the symbolize the expiry date on the package.

I think he intends to add expiry stickers at the convinience store.

Is it mandatory for me to write expiry dates? or the representative can write the expiry date?

Thank you,

D guy

Date coding is required on all but 10 foods imported to the US - these foods include soy sauce and sugar. See the FDA site for details.
