Food Labeling Solutions

Built for Compliance,
Visibility, and Safety

Accurate food labeling is central to facilitating regulatory compliance but is also critical for food retailers committed to quality, traceability, and keeping their consumers safe. Our range of innovative freshness, nutritional, promotional, and informational labeling solutions inform consumers, increase consumer confidence, and improve speed, accuracy, and productivity throughout the global food supply chain. 

Freshmarx Date Code and Food Prep Labeling

To prevent foodborne illness from bacteria such as Listeria, the law requires any opened and prepared food to be labeled with information, including current date and time and expiration date and time. Avery Dennison provides solutions designed to label food when a package is opened (i.e. hot dogs) or when a product is prepared for consumption (i.e. diced onions). Many food operators choose to implement their own food safety (or food quality) standards, which can reflect a stricter discard schedule.

"These Durax Labels are Fantastic!"

"I just wanted to let you know that these Durax labels are fantastic! We tried to find a condition or material that would make them leave a residue and we were unable to. We froze them to almost every kind of food container we have, we stuck them on hot coffee pots and let them sit, we soaked them in soapy water and they just came right off.

These are leaps and bounds better than the paper labels we have been using. My team is super excited about the prospect of not having to scrape sticker residue off of containers anymore, and the other store managers in my company are all excited to get the chance to try them in their restaurants as well. They work really well in our existing printers, and we also haven't had any issues with them falling off of packages of open products."

Supply Chain Labeling

The receiving process at most food retailers is currently performed manually, much like inventory management in the foodservice industry. Items are counted and compared to a packing slip with discrepancies noted–if caught, and the date received is handwritten on cartons or labeled with a click-and-stick gun. Avery Dennison Printer Solutions delivers inventory accuracy, shipping, receiving, and sustainable labeling solutions with barcode-printing of the received date on cartons, plus product name and expiration information.

Nutritional Fact Labels Mandates and Laws

Mandates and Laws

U.S.: Effective July, 2018, a new nutrition facts label format goes into effect. This new mandate requires changes to both detail provided on labels and their layout.

Europe: Effective December 2016, a new law requires food retailers to label certain pre-packaged food onsite with specific nutritional information. Contact your local food inspector for more information.
