New expiry date format for box labels

MWE has adopted a new format for its box labels in compliance with GS1 standards. The expiry date is now shown as a 6 digit code in the order YYMMDD, where YY is the last 2 digits of the year, MM is the month as 2 digits (from 01=January to 12=December), and DD is the date as 2 digits (from 01 to 31).

Thus an expiry code of 180201 means an expiry date of 1st February, 2018.
