Laser Food goes organic
Laser Food, the world leader in natural light
labelling of fresh fruits and vegetables
announces that its Laser Mark technology
has just been certified for its use with organic
The Laser Mark technology allows to label any kind of fresh fruit or vegetable by means of a laser light, and represents a cost effective and environmentally friendly alternative to traditional paper stickers. In order not to affect the integrity of the produce, the mark that is made is extremely superficial and does not enter into the fruit's skin. In order to make this mark visible, the company has developed a contrast liquid that triggers a reaction of the mark that was made and thus becomes visible. The use of this liquid, made from entirely foodstuffs, on fresh produce had already been approved by the European Union in a ruling of June 2013.
“The certification for use with organic agricultural products that we just received, is an important step in the history of our company because it reinforces our Laser Mark system as a cutting edge technology in the fresh fruit & vegetable sector and opens new horizons. From now on producers of organic agricultural products know that it is possible to label fresh produce without using any paper stickers and to guarantee the authenticity of their produce since the natural light mark is permanent,” says Stephane Mérit, Business development Manager at Laser food.
So far, the Laser Mark technology has been an option for companies interested in reducing their carbon footprint. It now goes even greener as it also becomes an option for the organic agriculture sector.
Laser Food signed an agreement earlier this year with the US multinational company JBT Corporation, world leader in fresh produce processing, for the global manufacturing and distribution of the laser machine.
Both companies will be at Fruit Logistica in Berlin, in the booth of JBT Corporation (Hall 5.1, booth A02), where they will show Fresh Produce Technologies and services.
