The UWI Label tells you at a glance if a product is still safe to use. It reduces waste, reduces risk, and saves money.

Reassuringly Simple.

In 2008, Pete was making lunch for his son and couldn’t remember when he had first opened a jar of mayonnaise. Rather than take a risk, he threw it out. This was the spark that gave him the idea for the UWI Label.

This smart label has a unique visual display, changing from green to red over time. The required time period can be customised for the product, ranging from minutes, to hours, days and weeks. It is the only time indicator label to be automatically activated when the container is opened.

Whilst the original idea addressed the issue of remembering the time since first opening a jar of food, the UWI Label has had much interest in saving waste beyond the food industry in life sciences, aerospace, cosmetics, and the list goes on.
