“Except for infant formula, product dating is NOT required by Federal regulations.”
"In an effort to reduce food waste, it is important that consumers understand that the dates applied to food are ... NOT for safety."
“Manufacturers provide dating to help consumers and retailers decide when food is of best quality. Except for infant formula, dates are NOT an indicator of the product’s safety and are NOT required by Federal law.”
"Food products are safe to consume past the date on the label, ...regardless of the date..."
Please read BOTH the "Introductory Letter" and the "Catalog Explanation" to learn everything you need to know about our Monthly Discount Catalog.
BEFORE ORDERING OR PURCHASING, PLEASE NOTE: Our monthly discount foods catalog comes from a wide selection of Name brand (Oscar Mayer, Tyson, Perdue, Post, General Mills, Nabisco, etc.), Generic, and Store brand (Aldi, Walmart) products from across the US. Some brands are regional and you may not be aware of them in this area. Some products are institutional use, or commercial restaurant use and may not include retail packaging and nutritional information.
Please note that these foods are heavily discounted for a number of reasons:
In regards to Close-coded / Out-of-code products:
40% of the US food supply that is raised or grown is thrown out and not eaten.
Globally 1/3 of all food that is produced is not consumed.
In the US 70-160 billion pounds of food is thrown out each year.
About 60% of consumers are throwing away food prematurely since they don't understand.
Contrary to popular belief none of these dates actually tells you when food stops being safe to eat.
9 states (including NYS) have no date labeling requirement at all.
Store's work hard to not have an image of 'bargain' or 'misfit' food which causes truck loads of product waste.
Store's have cosmetic requirements for products that increases waste before it's even packaged and shipped.
You can order FULL CASES ONLY from the entire CATALOG based on the last column (Customer Case $) using the Customer Order Form (found above)
You can order FULL CASES ONLY from our limited SPECIALS which is a simplified order form with our select picks (~100 items) of suggested best deals and top sellers only across all categories from the entire catalog (~1,000-3,000 items).
The store orders a small assortment of items from the entire catalog to sell in smaller quantities.
COVID IMPORTANT UPDATE: Please be aware that with the current state of events, items will disappear quickly! Please order as soon as possible and do NOT wait until the order deadline to place your order, for the best possible chance of receiving your case items. Hoarding will not be allowed and large quantity case orders of individual items will not increase your chances of receiving the item and will be modified accordingly. Please review the AVAILABILITY as certain items likely be sold out quickly.
