Quality and safety
The hospitality industry relies on building a strong and sustained reputation for exceptional catering service. Food quality and a positive customer experience are essential to long term business success. Reducing any potential risks to human health are naturally a priority but this can lead to unnecessary waste and additional cost.
Efficient stock management is also critical to the performance of caterers of all sizes – from independent kitchens to large scale food service operations. Not only does this deliver cost savings, it also helps to tackle the escalating problem of food waste.
So how can suppliers help give customers the confidence to use food at its best and reduce waste?
The UWI Label offers an innovative and accurate approach to monitoring how long a food or drink product is safe to eat after opening.
Applied to the outside of food packs, the non-toxic UWI Label incorporates an embedded, elapsed time indicator strip which is automatically activated when the product is opened; progressively changing from green to red according to a pre-set time period.
Consistently reliable across refrigerated and ambient products, the UWI Label can be tailored to individual product timescales. Its versatile design can also be adjusted according to pack specifications and artwork.
Far reaching benefits
Working alongside conventional on-pack date information, the UWI Label allows suppliers to:
- Create a point of difference against competitors
- Offer customers products with added value in terms of safety and waste reduction
- Reduce the risk of food safety crises
- Help build customer loyalty
