Delfi Lithuania writes about it.
It is noted that at present in Lithuania it is forbidden to sell food with an expired shelf life. The report also says that this is considered one of the reasons for the high level of food waste in the republic.
The chairman of the Lithuanian Seimas Commission on Environmental Protection, Aistė Gedvilienė, argues that the inhabitants of the country "do not need to be afraid that someone will try to push through bad products."
"A person will have the right to choose between a product that is now good or good for another year and between a product whose expiration date came yesterday. You can buy 50 or 40 percent cheaper or take one that is still fully usable," she said.
At the same time, the head of the Lithuanian Food Bank, Simonas Gurevičius, criticized the proposed amendments to the legislation. He noted that representatives of the organization he heads visit more than 600 stores in 83 cities every day.
"Almost 100% of expired products are not saleable and must be disposed of immediately," he said.
In December 2022, the Seimas of Lithuania adopted amendments to the law on control in the field of weapons and ammunition, according to which citizens of the Russian Federation and Belarus living in Lithuania are deprived of the right to own firearms from January 1, 2023.
