Labeling Your Food

As a responsible food supplier or grower, you will, we are certain, be well aware of the requirements that are needed on a food or drink product label, but it is worth running through the main points.

Definition of a label

It’s interesting to listen to a person when they are asked what the definition of a label is; the answers usually take the form of something that is stuck to a bottle. Well of course it very often is, but it is much more than that of course.

Some ideas on a new product label

If it has been decided to introduce a new product, maybe give a facelift or slightly change the formula of an existing one, the all important label is that first thing that your customer will see on the shelf or display counter. Labels provide a wealth of information, it is usually the way your product is seen by the potential customer, and it has to tell them what it is and how to use it as well as giving other vital information.

How To Make Eye Catching Products

You are walking along a supermarket and looking at the array of products on the shelves, what do you see and what catches your eye? It could be a particular brand name, or familiar colour on the label, what is a reasonable assumption is that it will be an eye catching design, even if it is a brand that you are looking for, manufacturers do like to ring the changes, whilst at the same time keeping their image and familiar logo.

We have vast experience collected over the years about barcodes, and with the introduction of the new QR Code naturally we have put all this knowledge into the production of the exciting new storage code.

Why use a label?

Well there are of course hundreds of reasons why we use labels, they are very common place of course and in a similar way to the barcode, we take them for granted they are just there.

But of course without labelling, where would we be with our food products for example? They tell us what the product is of course, but also important nutritional information and content, food labelling is simply vital today, labels are used throughout day to day life, not just to identify a product.

Why Use DataLabel

Metal Labels

There are many situations that call for a label which will withstand the rigours, harsh environments and handling which could damage labels which are produced from materials such as polypropylene, vinyl, polyester, or paper for example. Aluminium labels are one of the most durable and can be the answer to harsh conditions and rough use making them perfect for warehousing, pallets and asset labels.

Get Noticed With Car Window Stickers

Putting a label onto the rear window of a car before it leaves your showroom is a valuable source of advertising. Of course the proud new owner could remove it, but how many actually do? The car that you have just sold with the name of your organisation displayed will be seen by other motorists at traffic lights or simply following at a safe distance behind. But it is when the car is parked that it will be most prominently on display telling the passing people that your garage is out there selling cars.
