A smart link in the cold chain
Traceability is taken very seriously in the food industry. Labels and barcodes are printed on virtually every consumer food product in the world. Maintaining the correct temperature to keep perishable food in the desired range is necessary. Refrigeration needs to be applied throughout the cold chain. The EU-funded TEMPIX project has developed a new type of label that can improve the efficiency of the cold chain. It’s a time-temperature smart label. If a product is exposed to conditions above the stipulated temperature for an extended period of time, the barcode will be blocked rendering it unsellable. The project plans to go to market with a complete turnkey solution comprising a two-in-one thermal label printer and a cover label applicator.
