Use of the label has enabled customers to reliably monitor for any temperature excursions and thus avoid feeding their pets spoiled and potentially dangerous food. It has also promoted improved trust in the company’s products by providing customers with clear, unambiguous data as to whether any temperature excursions have occurred during transit and how long they lasted. If the indicator window on the Timestrip Food is filled in blue, the customer immediately knows that the cumulative time of temperature breaches mean the product should be discarded.
“If a box of food turns up and looks like it has thawed customers can instantly look at the Timestrip indicator label and see that the dog food is indeed safe to stick back into a freezer and be ready for when it’s needed,” says Luke.
Although exact data on financial savings that use of the Timestrip Food TP252 has led to is unavailable, Luke says that it has helped with a large volume of deliveries and has already saved the company an amount greater than their cost.
A further benefit of using Timestrip labels is related to the company’s ongoing commitment to environmental protection. For packaging, it uses 100% recyclable materials wherever possible. It also works to reuse and recycle as much packaging as possible and runs a scheme to get packaging back from customers. Because Timestrip indicators can be easily disposed of in general waste, they support this core value of the company. Their single-use and unique serial number features promote security and ensure the full traceability of products.
