UK - A new label on the market can indicate when temperature sensitive products have been accidentally frozen during transport or storage. UK-based Timestrip said yesterday its iStrip label is designed to be mass produced at a lower cost than alternatives currently on the market. The label undergoes an irreversible colour change when exposed to freezing temperatures. The new label could help processors maintain and ensure the quality of their product throughout the supply chain. The label was initially developed in response to demand from the pharmaceutical industry. However it can also be fully integrated into the packaging of products such as vaccines, protein based pharmaceuticals, foodstuffs and fertilizer, said Paul Freedman, joint chief executive officer of Timestrip. <i>Source: Food Production Daily</i>
