Camden BRI Project: Moving from 'Use by' to Best before' dates: Can we trust the sniff test?

Campden BRI logo

If you supply milk for retail consumption you may be interested in participating in an exciting and important new project initiated by Campden BRI. You will be aware that recently some producers have moved from displaying 'Use by' to 'Best before' dates on their fresh pasteurised milks and milk products. This move relies on the consumer assessing the quality of milk by judging the appearance, smell and taste of the products. Campden BRI is looking for participants for a group- funded project to provide a risk assessment and pooled historical data for companies that wish to move from 'Use by' to 'Best before' on pasteurised fresh milk. The project aims to provide participants with a resource that can be drawn on to support their own risk assessments and enable 'a robust assessment of microbiological risk' in UK FSA terms. It is thought that this collaborative approach has the potential to accelerate the process for any member of the consortium and hopefully reduce waste. To participate in the project or for further information please contact : .
