When properly stored, food can often stay fresh longer than expected. Our customers write us saying that they store fresh fruit in the cellar, the stairwell or on the balcony. In the winter, many of them keep fruit such as oranges, clementines or apples in a Styrofoam box outside on the balcony or terrace.
Pantry staples like nuts or dried fruit can often be stored past their best-before date. Some customers also freeze part of their shipment in portions and take it out of the freezer as needed. Many of them like not having to go shopping as often because they have some food set aside.
