FIFO Is the Food Safety Rule Used By the Pros: Find Out What It Means! by Chef Gigi Gaggero, Our 30Seconds Resident Chef
FIFO is the food safety rule professional chefs and food retailers live by. What does it mean? “First In, First Out.”
All professional chefs and retailers stock perishables so older items are pushed to the front, where they will be reached for first. When shopping for items like ground beef or milk, check the back of the stack for later sell-by dates – and a fresher product! Then apply the rule at home.
You can also stock your pantry the same, so you get the biggest bang for your food budget buck and keep your family eating fresh!
