How do I read your expiration dates in the code?

Cans, Jars and Retort pouches are virtually indefinite in shelf life. Anyone eating C-rations from WW II or Korean War era can attest to. We do operate with a guideline for nutritional purposes. Five years for cans and seven years for jars and pouches. After that nutritional will start falling off but they will still fool the tongue and stomach. We use Julian dating to establish when the product was made. See below for cans, this can be read on the can lid.




Jars are similar only the code is on the bottom. Retort pouches are in a single line at the bottom of the pouch in red print.




Any questions, please call 800-451-1400
