  4. 13. Plastic <ul><li>A packaging technique is Modified-Atmosphere Packaging (MAP). </li></ul><ul><li>Food products are contained in a plastic container, in which the air has been modified to prolong the shelf-life of food and to keep the colour. </li></ul><ul><li>MAP is used to package: </li></ul><ul><li>cold meats, smoked fish, vegetables, cheeses, salads, fresh pasta, part-baked breads </li></ul>

  7. 16. Glass <ul><li>Advantages such as can see the product, recyclable, cheap to produce. </li></ul><ul><li>Used for beer, juices, jams and jellies, oils, and pickles. </li></ul>
  8. 17. Product Codes <ul><li>Product codes are all about traceability. </li></ul><ul><li>For example, whether you buy cage, barn, free range or organic, a code will be printed on your egg.  The first number refers to the farming method; 0 = organic, 1 = free range, 2 = barn, 3 = cage.  This is followed by the country of origin and then the farm identification which is a specific code denoting the actual farm where your eggs were produced. </li></ul>

  10. 20. Terms on labels; use by? <ul><li>'Use by' means exactly that. You shouldn't use any food or drink after the end of the 'use by' date shown on the label. You will usually find a 'use by' date on food that goes off quickly, such as milk, soft cheese, yoghurts and meat. </li></ul>
  11. 21. Terms on labels; best before? <ul><li>'Best before' dates are usually used on foods that last longer, such as frozen, dried or canned foods. It should be safe to eat food after the 'best before' date, but the food will no longer be at its best. After this date, the food might begin to lose its flavour and texture. </li></ul>
  12. 22. Terms on labels; display/sell by? <ul><li>'Display until' and 'sell by' dates are instructions for shop staff to tell them when they should take a product off the shelves. </li></ul>
