Smart label indicates accidental freezing

UK - A new label on the market can indicate when temperature sensitive products have been accidentally frozen during transport or storage.</b> <br><br> 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. <br><br> The new label could help processors maintain and ensure the quality of their product throughout the supply chain. <br><br> The label was initially developed in response to demand from the pharmaceutical industry. <br><br> 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. <br><br> <i>Source: Food Production Daily</i>
