ARK Survival Spoil Times – Meats, Berries, Eggs, Veggies & More

Here is a guide showing the spoil times for various items and resources in ARK Survival Evolved.  The location of the items can affect how long the items will last before they go bad.  Storing your foods in a refrigerator is the ideal place for them to last the longest.  Items kept in your player inventory will spoil the fastest.


This table shows the amount of time each item will last in each different storage area.  Each type of meat has a different spoil time so be sure to pay attention to which kinds you have in your inventory.  Most of the grasses and roots have the same spoil times.
