Hi, Mitch!
I think half eaten products are impossible to share/donate. I think there already enough hurdles to take from a food safety perspective that's why I believe that we have to focus on closed products. I think it can even be difficult to donate food which has to be kept cold at all time.
I think your questions are all excellent and I think our group should speak about that. However, it's just a little bit arduous to do that by writing. So I would suggest that our group tries to hold a meeting over TeamViewer or Skype so that we can elaborate a little bit before we do the business model canvas.

Best regards,


Hi Tojin Eapen and Ezgi Sengun 
Ezgi is right. I checked it yesterday in Woolworth and in Aldi. I think for dairy products they often use "use by" and for other products such as chocolate or coffee beans they rather use "best before". However, my roommate told me that he thinks that he has seen both dates on the same product but couldn't find such a product in the two grocery stores which I have checked.

Hi Tojin,

I am pretty sure that I have seen it before. But I'll go and check this today since I am currently living in Sydney.
