Consumers who choose to buy artisan and independent brands are prepared to pay a higher price for smaller batches with more natural ingredients and a more ‘home made’ feel. How do you, as a brand owner, preserve your brand quality? How can you ensure that your products are consumed at their best once they leave the retailer?
Due to their higher prices, it is tempting for the consumer to keep artisan products and use them right up to the last mouthful. Not being able to remember when you bought (or first opened) a product is risky. The sniff test does not work on bacteria such as salmonella, e-coli and listeria, which are all odorless.
There is a solution.
The UWI Solution
The UWI Timer allows your customers to tell at a glance the open life of a product, ensuring that they always consume the product at its best, improve their fridge management and save money by reducing food waste.
|Clearest display||Understood at a glance and from a few meters distance, the UWI Timer has the clearest displays of any time indicator. Universal colour code: green is good, red is bad.|
|Tailor made||Various elements are customized to suit: artwork, label size, timeframe, etc. As a small company, our advantage stems from our flexibility, speed and tight control over the entire process from design to manufacture.|
|Unique technology||Many years of rigorous scientific and technical development have refined our unique microfluidic technology. When the UWI Timer is green, you can rest assured a product is safe to use.|
|Removes human error||Automatically activated when the container is opened, meaning there is no need to remember to activate the timer and no need to remember when you purchased or first opened it.|
