Reduced to Clear is passionate about eliminating unnecessary waste. With landfills taking up valuable space any initiative that Reduce to Clear can do to decrease the amount of waste works within the strong ethos of the company. Added to this the savings that customers are able to enjoy.
As well as protecting the Environment Reduced to Clear has strong community values. We are always listening to our local community and have sponsored several community events. We are also involved with community fundraising.
We sell groceries online that are
- Close to or just past it's best before date
- End of packaging lines
- Packaging misprints
- A new design or change of pack size renders a deleted range
- Post Easter, Christmas, and clearance lines
- Under-performing newly launched products
- Cancelled export and import orders
We sell a large range of NZ's most popular grocery items at wholesale prices.
At Reduced to Clear we believe it's better to use it than dump it. Our no nonsense approach to selling groceries online ensure that our customers love the fact they are buying goods cheaper, Making large savings and doing their bit to help the planet and therefore saving the environment.
Reduced to Clear does NOT SELL products that are past their use by or expiry date. Products with these two versions of dates should not be eaten past these dates!
*Please note that if a products use by date or expiry date has been labelled incorrectly we are able to sell this product - with correct information shown on the product*
There is a common misconception that all these dates have the same meaning. It couldn't be further from the truth. Best before is a date supplied by the manufacturer to be an accurate guesstimate to when the product will be at its 100% best by.
In USA most products have a mandatory 6 month best before date. Regulations dictate when the product has a best before date not the quality of the product. Chocolate and lollies are still in top condition for at least 12 months if packed in the correct packaging. Sell for a lesser price or throw out ? We give that choice to our customers. Waste not want not!
At Reduced to Clear we do frequent taste tests (one of the perks of working at Reduced to Clear) to ensure the food we sell in our grocery stores, and online grocery stores are up to standard – taste for yourself and we will give you 100% money back if you are not truly satisfied.
Remember it is illegal to sell products past their expiry date.
