About Us

OUR MISSION

Launched in February 2009, StillTasty has become recognized as the Internet’s ultimate shelf-life guide. Recommended as a go-to food reference by a wide variety of national media outlets, StillTasty’s searchable database reveals shelf life information for virtually every food and beverage found in the average kitchen.

Our mission: To help consumers save money, eat better and help the environment.

Created by an award-winning journalist and her mother (a retired food safety expert), StillTasty’s food storage information is drawn from multiple sources. A primary source is the food safety research conducted by U.S. government agencies, including the United States Department of Agriculture, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

StillTasty’s content also incorporates research from state government agencies as well as several non-profit organizations, academic institutions and associations that conduct studies on food storage and safety. In addition, StillTasty has directly contacted food and beverage manufacturers to obtain information on optimal storage methods for specific foods and details on storage times as they pertain to both food safety and food quality.

Wasted food is never a good thing. StillTasty eliminates wild guesses and wasted money when it comes to both food safety and consumers’ grocery budgets.
