    term of storage/storage length/shelf life length

    Hello.

    Given that the talk is about food, which of the following options are correct?

    1. 'What is the term of storage?'
    2. 'What is the storage length?'
    3. 'What is the shelf life length?'
    4. 'What is the retention period?'

    Thanks,

    Alex.

    I would suggest "How long is the shelf life?"

    Re: term of storage/storage length/shelf life length

    What's the shelf life?
    When's the use by date?
    When's the sell by date?
    When's the best before date?
    How long does it keep?
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
