Result Group FreshTag time-temperature indicator (TTI) labels
Result Group will distribute the FreshTag time-temperature indicator (TTI) labels that signpost the freshness of food with easy-to-read colour codes.
Also called intelligent packaging or sensory labels, the TTI labels are designed to reduce food wastage and motivate changes in the behaviour of personnel and consumers who maintain chill chains. Poor chill chain management within the supply chain and uncertainty about how long ago food packs were opened after purchase are a couple of the issues the labels can address. The labels can help to assure the consumer that the product was properly handled and would thus indicate remaining shelf life based on the actual time and temperature conditions experienced during distribution and handling.
The fully automated, time-temperature indicator label is suitable for managing perishable products in supply chains, at retailers and with consumers.
Providing a cost-effective alternative to hardware-based sensory devices, the labels provide a way to individually monitor the condition of products throughout the distribution cycle.
The labels are customisable and allow for calibrating the needed time or temperature profiles to fit with a variety of fresh and perishable produce such as fresh meats, cheese and vegetables as well as time- or temperature-sensitive pharmaceutical products.
The tags can be used at various levels too, such as at the pallet, case or individual item level.
There are several benefits of deploying sensory labels that have earned the trust of supply and distribution chains including: shelf life can be extended as losses due to temperature abuse can be reduced; stock management can be simplified and standardised across the entire supply chain; and there is a better indication of real product life compared to date codes. Furthermore, the labels can instil consumer confidence in the quality of the produce, by indicating that the food is still fresh for consumption.
