According to the WHO, there are over 200 diseases that are foodborne. These could occur at any stage of the food production and consumption chain. This is why it is vitally important for retailers to take food safety seriously.
These days, customers are more mindful than ever before of food safety. A strong commitment to hygiene could be all that you need to set yourself apart from the competition.
Why is it important to maintain hygiene in food ticketing?
Food ticketing is an important part of your fresh food displays. Research indicates that customers are more likely to buy products when the information and price of the product is displayed clearly.
Traditionally, this information is written out by hand. Some retailers try to laminate labels so they last longer. But there are still multiple issues associated with this method, including illegible writing and unprofessional script that takes away from the appeal of your display. These also lower hygiene standards and do not last well in cold or moist conditions.
Signs written by hand can’t be easily cleaned and can attract a host of germs. When they are washed, they retain moisture which provides the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and mould. With this, you risk the outbreak of a food borne illness that will damage your business and reputation. Outbreaks of foodborne illnesses happen more often than you think, so it’s important to stick to strict standards at all times.
Edikio printers now offer you the ideal solution to all these problems. This cleverly designed system provides you with all you need to produce professional and hygienic labels.
Printable food ticketing cards
An Edikio printer is a compact machine that can print out cards with all the necessary details about your produce or fresh food. The software is standard and easy to use. You can also customise your prints and have the cards ready in seconds.
Food contact compliant signage
The food tickets for Edikio are credit-card sized, PVC signage that is food contact compliant. These cards are simple to clean and dry as their design is free of any joins or texture. Since you can clean them regularly, you can reuse them without fear of breeding germs in your display. These cards are also resistant to cold conditions and moisture so they can be placed in delis or the frozen food section without having to worry about their durability.
The food safe cards come in three sizes:
Food labelling compliant display
There are certain details that need to be mandatorily showcased on food ticketing, such as allergens, country of origin and nutritional information. These cards are prepared with this in mind and can hold all the information you need displayed. The clear print ensures that customers can easily read them. Any time that the price or other details of your produce changes, it is simple to update the tag by just printing a new card in seconds.
Versatile cards to strengthen branding across departments
With the ability to customise these cards, you can ensure a standard print throughout all your departments. Not only will this reinforce your branding, but it complements fresh produce and ingredients beautifully. Rather than look like signage at a run-of-the-mill supermarket, these cards lend an air of sophistication to your display. Whether it’s for freshly baked goods, deli salads, frozen fish, meats or fresh produce, these cards give customers all the information they need in neat, crisp print.
Edikio printers are compact and don’t take up much room in your store. Its only consumables are ribbon and cards to print on. This one product gives you the ultimate solution to hygienic food ticketing in a cost-effective package.
