  1. Answer: Perishable foods are foods like fresh meat, seafood, and ripe fruits. While non-perishable are items that do not spoil or decay.... for example; canned goods, all pasta types, sugar, flour, curls (and chips if air-sealed), spices are non perishable as well.
  2. Perishable foods is ANY food that will spoil, rot, go bad very fast, such as within hours. Most perishable (dies quickly) foods will not even last a few hours without refrigeration or freezing. Milk, cottage cheese, sour cream, ice cream, meat, pork, chicken, pretty much a perishable food is anything you would normally keep in the fridge or freezer for several days, otherwise, if you left it out, it would go bad. Non-perishables are dry and canned foods, sometimes vegetables.
  3. Perishable - will spoil sooner - some examples - fresh fruits and veggies, breads, fish, meat - Non-perishable - much longer shelf life - examples - canned food, crackers
perishable has longer life period as compare to non perishable, perishable is milk, meat, unsealed products like buiscuit, bread, bakery products where as non perishable is soft drinks, alchohal, dry fruit.

Non-perishable items take longer to reach stores because they first go to multiple packaging warehouses.
