Reminder: how to store your food.

In order to make sure that we waste as little food as possible we also need to store it correctly. Therefore, we are going to look into the correct storing options for different food types.

  • Fish needs to be stored in the refrigerator and needs to be eaten within maximum 2 days after purchase
  • If you don’t manage to make a delicious dish with your fresh seafood within 2 days, wrap it in a plastic bag that is moisture free and leave it in the freezer
