The food service industry relies on multiple users and time critical service delivery, which can both increase confusion and pressure to instantly understand the distinctions between different date labels. Not knowing when a product was first opened is more risky for certain foods. The sniff test does not work with bacteria such as salmonella, e-coli and listeria, which are all odorless.

Caterers are prepared to pay a higher price for ingredients which are not only good quality but also help reduce costs and time in the service delivery. How do you, as a brand owner, preserve your brand quality? How can you ensure that your products are consumed at their best, over multiple food service events? How can your packaging help save money by saving time and reducing waste?
