Is the fridge too warm? Sounds like it if even the milk is going off. Have you tried putting stuff in airtight containers?
I like dull questions - quite good at them myself

not being nosey, but where abouts in Germaby are you? I tend to wrap cheese in greeseproof paper but other than that cannot help you as dh takes care of that.

afraid I can't help you there
possibly a ploy by the German food industry to get you to buy more more often?

Maybe you will have better luck in with you next fridge

Is it possible that they just generally put far few chemicals in the food, so it doesn't keep so well?

sounds like the fridge is at fault to me

Id say it sounds like a prob with the fridge rather than the food. Ive lived in some places with crap fridges and had similar problems. But to answer your question I store cheese from the deli counter in tinfoil and ham in the plastic bag it comes in. Ham never lasts more than two days in our house anyway but cheese keeps for a long time.

I dont mean the ham goes off it gets eating cos were all gannets here

When I lived in Germany I found that the open-air markets generally had the freshest produce. I know what you mean about fruit and veg, even the green-grocers didn't have very fresh stuff, and the supermarkets were dire. I've told dh that I'm never moving anywhere that doesn't have a Waitrose.

When I found my milk kept going off it was the fridge temperature that was to blame.

As for everyday storage, you can't beat good old Tupperware! Can't buy it in UK at the moment but maybe you can in Germany.

But if produce isn't fresh in the first place you don't have a chance.
