We print the Best Before Date on the back label above the Nutrition Panel. The best before date is derived by Laboratory testing of our oil after the harvest.
The Australian Standard mandates we choose the lowest figure derived from the three different tests we are required to do and that we must not quote more than 24 months even if the test results suggest a longer time is possible.
If after a period of time we retest our oil and the results are good then we can update our labels with the new BBDs but again can't quote more than 24 months. For example, our 2015 oils had a BBD of July 2017. In November 2016, we decided to retest the oil and the new BBD is November 2018 - the oil had aged remarkably well.
However, from a commercial point of view, we didn't re-label our cans due to the expense, but it was extremely pleasing to see that our storage and handling practices and the quality of our oil is excellent.
