Grocery Shopping and Food Storage consumer Tips

7 October 2019

  • When grocery shopping, make sure to separate fruits and vegetables from raw meats
  • Make sure that any food packages you buy are completely sealed and unopened 
  • Make sure to buy your eggs, meat and fish at the end of your trip
  • Make sure not to leave raw meats and fish to thaw outside the fridge
  • Once you have purchased your groceries, be sure to go home and store them immediately
  • Avoid opening the fridge repeatedly so that your food stays colder longer
  • Don't leave hot foods to completely cool outside. Put hot food in the fridge or freezer as soon as the steam stops rising.
  • Divide food into small containers so it cools more quickly in the fridge
  • Don't overfill your fridge. Make sure there is room for air circulation inside the fridge for effective cooling
  • Store any leftovers in the fridge and eat within two to three days
