SATO’s New Printers And Labellers Enable The Food Industry To Improve Efficiencies While Meeting Food Labelling Legislation
SATO has introduced two new printing and labelling solutions for the food industry.

SATO’s new TH2 All in Box is a “ready-to-use” pack which includes an intelligent TH2 printer and labels so users can simply start labelling quickly and efficiently, while meeting stringent food preparation and labelling regulations, while the new JUDO FOOD handheld labeller is a flexible labelling solution enabling users to improve food security.

From December this year, new law on food traceability will be compulsory throughout Europe. As part of the regulations, food manufacturers must inform consumers of the origin of fresh meat, fruits and vegetables as well as the presence of allergens and glutens. Manufacturers will also need to specify if a product has been defrosted previously, and apply a minimal size of print font to allow for easier reading. SATO’s new solutions are ideal for printing labels enabling food manufacturers to meet these new requirements.

SATO’s TH2 printer offers portable, standalone, intelligent printing and is particularly suited to quick-serve restaurants, to print labels for ingredient preparation in the kitchen, as well as final product labels detailing ingredients, packaging date, use-by date, price and barcode.

The printer is exceptionally intuitive and easy to use and features an internal real-time clock which simply calculates and prints the time and date onto labels. This minimises human error, therefore increasing efficiencies and ensuring the food is safe for consumption. No separate computer is needed as the printer contains its own programs and database that can be altered easily at any time.

The TH2 All in Box is also easy to order as users simply specify the pack, rather than printer and labels individually, which assists in purchasing.

The JUDO FOOD handheld labeller has been designed especially to meet the needs of those in the food industry and is available with 13 pre-designed texts such as ‘cooked on’, ‘defrosted on’, ‘storage temperature’ and ‘best before’. This gives the user increased flexibility and choice, and they can make time and cost savings associated with purchasing many different types of label.

JUDO FOOD handheld labellers also print the date with the month and day written in full, and it is the only hand labeller on the market to do so. This makes the date easier to read thus minimising error, ensuring food is safe and reducing wastage. The handheld labeller is extremely user friendly, and is a sturdy and lightweight device, enabling users to print high-quality labels, quickly, easily and economically.

“We’re delighted to be offering these two new solutions to our customers in the food industry,” says Laurent Lassus, General Manager at SATO France. “At SATO we’re continually developing products that will enable our customers to work more efficiently and we have reliable solutions for all areas of the food industry, from preparation of ingredients in the kitchen, to the final product packaging.”

Be Careful Of What Gets Lost In Translation For Labelling
Richard Brooks, internationally accredited translation expert and Director of the Association of Language Companies, has spoken out on one of the latest EU Food Directives.

"With the EU aiming to tackle the alarming rise in obesity rates within Europe via Food Information Regulation (FIR), I am concerned that many major food retailers are ill-prepared and may fall foul of the new legislation. Not only because the relabelling of all food packaging is required by the end of 2014, a massive undertaking in its self, but, more importantly, because it must be precise. There will be no margin for translation errors within the new legislation as the mandatory labelling obligations for allergens, sugar, fat content, saturates, energy, carbohydrate, salt etc could all have health implications if not 100% accurate."

The Food Information Regulation (FIR) comes in to force at the end of December this year, 2014, abolishing confusing and inconsistent labels – food retailers will be required to adopt a unified system that makes it simple for the consumer to read exactly what is in packaged foods. The biggest challenge for food retailers, whether they decide simply to adjust their packaging to reflect the FIR or use the opportunity to rebrand entirely, will be to ensure that all of their supplier and packaging company's labels are compliant with the FIR in every language and each EU country in which their products are sold.

Richard goes on to say: "In an industry where we translate information for over a thousand products a week I can attest that translating food packaging isn't easy. There are those within the food industry who continue to make errors on foreign language packs, a problem perpetuated by polluted translation memories, unprofessional translators and using technology like Google Translate without a post-editing process. The most popular online translation tools returns the French translation of 'may contain nuts' as 'Peut contenir des noix' – looks right doesn't it? Well noix is actually often understood to mean walnuts so the phrase returned is 'may contain walnuts'. Are nuts and walnuts different? They certainly are if your child has a specific allergy and worryingly we see this common error all over packs in European supermarkets."

Award-winning Flexible Labelling For Food-to-Go At lunch!
Tri-Label is gearing up to make a huge splash at lunch! 2014 with Tri-Label Online, the double award-winning cloud-based labelling software solution that is proving a big hit with businesses across the food-to-go sector.

Lunch! takes place at the Business Design Centre in London on 23 and 24 September. Exhibiting alongside parent company Tri-Star Packaging, Tri-Label’s experts will be on-hand to demonstrate how Tri-Label Online can revolutionise the way in which café operators design and self-print eye-catching labels for their products.

Tri-Label Online offers businesses a really easy way to create and produce great-looking labels from any PC and printer using the UK’s only cloud-based labelling software package. Tri-Label Online is a cost-effective and simple way to create fantastic labels that will guarantee maximum shelf-standout for products and reinforce brand identity.

The ground-breaking system is flexible and updateable, eliminating the need to buy new software discs whenever labelling regulations change. Users simply access Tri-Label Online via a secure web portal, through which they can create, amend and self-print their labels as required.

The timing of Tri-Label’s launch couldn’t be better. In December 2014, tough new EU labelling laws will come into effect forcing food-to-go operators to put detailed nutritional information on the products they sell. Requirements for allergen information have been tightened up, while companies will also have to use a minimum font size for any information that’s mandatory under the law. Tri-Label Online is designed to take away the hassle and expense of complying with the new regulation, helping food-to-go companies to amend their labels seamlessly and comply with the law with the minimum of disruption.

It also offers a host of features including recipe management, cost data control and administrative hierarchical control, which can be tailored to suit the customer. The service is available for a modest monthly subscription fee, which varies according to the size of a business.

Tri-Label Online has already won two major awards since its launch earlier this year. It was named Product Launch of the Year (Packaging & Disposables) at the 2014 Essential Café Trade Awards and came home with the New Sandwich Product Award at this year’s Sammies, the awards of the British Sandwich Association.

The food industry has also been quick to recognise the benefits of Tri-Label Online, and users of the system now include a major café and restaurant group, a boutique contract caterer and a food manufacturer, among many others.

Kevin Curran, Managing Director of Tri-Label, said: “Tri-Label Online is designed to be quick and easy to use for even the most IT-phobic among us. Constantly changing labelling legislation is a real aggravation. Café operators just want to get on with the business of making money from selling great food and drink. Tri-Label Online means they can do so without worrying about labelling hassles. Our friendly and knowledgeable team will be on hand at lunch! 2014 to demonstrate the many benefits of Tri-Label Online, so make sure you stop by our stand to see it for yourself.”
