And how much for postage ?

Never heard of the retailer and past before date? May as well pay a few pennies more at B&M they often give at least a months BBE.

Have a look lazy fat boy!

The best before is there for a reason don't you agree? You should never eat food that has gone past its best before date as it could be fatal.

Steep postage

X) Use by dates are a problem
Best Before dates are guidelines for the taste and quality and food can be used months or years after the date, tinned corned beef lasts for years.

Balls.

Best before means exactly what it says, it will be perfectly safe to eat for several years, but the consitency, flavour or aroma may deteriorate slightly.

If you dont believe me, go look up the regulations.

Until last year, I still had plain flour from Safeway, who got taken over by Morrisons over a decade ago; keep it dry and it lasts forever..

50p a tin in home bargains if you don't fancy paying delivery and you near a H

with a 5.99 delivery charge you'd be saving just buying them at full price and in date from a supermarket how's this got 78%

the company owners were rejected by the dragons on a dragons den episode quite some time ago, i remember watching the programme, they had the last laugh as they went on without the dragons help and investment to make millions.

i personally think there prices are expensive for past date food & drink especially when you take delivery in to consideration, you find past date or near best before date produce much cheaper in the likes of tesco b&m etc,

Yeah mate. Hear of people dying from out of date tomato soup all the time...

I've used this site in the past. "Best before" dates are there as a guide - items may be past their prime but still usable, certainly not a health risk or they wouldn't be able to sell them. "Use by" is the one you have to watch - used on fresh produce such as dairy, meat, fish and fresh veg - and not observing these can be risky. Research it online - it isn't rocket science. If you order a number of different items you can absorb the £5.99 postal chg which covers 25kg delivery. The main disadvantage I found was that there are restrictions on how many of the really attractive discounts you can order, sometimes just two or three of an item. When I ordered some sauces i'd not heard of before to pad out the order they were vile so you need to be aware that not all the lines they sell are of the same quality as the headline deals.

After using Approved Food a couple of times i decided it was too much hassle and that it's cheaper to look out for the best deals in my local supermarket - many of which are just as cheap as Approved Food but without the hefty delivery charge.

I’m just about scraping the bottom of a Marmite jar that had a BB or use-by-date of 2008 and I’m still here oO

look around there is normally a free postage code going or £3-£5 off your order.

How is this not freezing? £6.99 for 4 tins of out of date soup? My local premier has 3 for £1 at the moment, Morrisons are 6 for £3 or something. Even full price is cheaper than this!

Best Before on a tin or jar of tomato based product is fine for months after IMHO.

Tomato, being acidic, is a natural preservative I thought. 25p per tin is a great price.

ok, doesn't answer my question at all though.

The postal charge covers up to 25kilos of goods, not just one pack of beans; the idea is you buy loads from them and they make a profit off of the goods - not the postage.

Its a bit like driving 20 miles for cheap petrol, and only getting 10 litres

Maybe so but depending on the acidity of the foods the metal of the tins may leech into the food.

​True, that's why I gave corned beef as an example, bought that from Approved a few years ago and it was fine
Acidity can definitely be a problem for other tinned products.

Botulinum killed plenty, canned food has only been around since I think the late 1700s maybe early 1800s, trust me in the early days it did indeed kill many, maybe not instantly but slowly over time from the metals of the cans getting into the food, lead poisoning and later aluminium poisoning. It affects the brain has an effect similar to dementia.
