New Label Shows Fresh In

Against undiscovered heatwaves in the refrigerated counter Bonn, July 8, 2009 – summer, Sun, sunshine. What pure joy of life for many consumers, holds many dangers for quickly corrupting food. High temperatures are known to be the main cause of spoiled food and diseases caused by this. Due to long transport routes at high temperatures and incorrect storage it may lead to especially in the summer quickly the consumer taking spoiled food without knowing it to be. Bizerba counteracts the targeted. The technology manufacturer from Balingen developed the innovative time temperature indicator (TTI) OnVu together with Ciba Specialty chemicals and FreshPoint.

The supermarket customers can see the color on the label, which food during transport and during storage was well cooled and is fresh and that he should better avoid. The OnVu label works very precisely and reliably for most foods. The OnVu label with UV light activated (recharges), it turns dark blue. then it temperature completely decolorized himself. This means, if the product is fresh, the label is dark blue. Is the blue colour is gone, the product should no longer be used.

Now spoils fish such as faster as salami, the label is also these differences. So the labels for fish be charged, for example, shorter than the labels for salami. The worse is how far progressed, recognizes the customer easily on the basis of a comparison of active blue color in the middle of the label with a present also on the label color of the reference. Because Bizerba attaches great importance to the safety of the new system, every OnVu is calibrated label specifically to each product. The desaturation process cannot be manipulated by the applied UV filter. So far, the customer had to rely on the specified expiration date. You do not, this date always refers to a temperature at which the product must be stored and transported than consumer knows but as the conditions for a single Package were actually. So choosing a product alone after the expiration date, not knowing whether the ideal storage and transport conditions have been met. Also, it happens in summer often, that fresh food will be hot during transport from the supermarket back home. You cannot recognize what that means for the durability on the expiration date. A look at the OnVu shows clearly label whether a product should be consumed quickly or is still long-lasting. A message from NeueNachricht. NeueNachricht is responsible for the content.
