How long does food keep in the freezer?

Meat, fish, vegetables, bread – frozen food does not last forever. As a rule of thumb, the more fat a food contains, the shorter you can store it.

  • Fish and meat: about three months
  • Vegetables: six to 12 months
  • Fruit: ten to 12 months
  • Bakery products: four to six months

If you freeze food, you should also pay attention to the temperature in the freezer. It should be at least -18 degrees.
