Until recently, a food label being ‘bumpy’ was by no means a good thing. However, multinational dairy company Arla is trialling a food label with a difference – one that develops bumps when food deteriorates and becomes inedible. These labels are designed to stop food from being thrown away prematurely. In 2015, UK households discarded over seven million tonnes of food – which cost each household roughly £500 per year. The Food Standards Agency has estimated that more than 50% of this wasted food could have been saved.
Nobody likes to pay over the odds for processing, printing, and finishing while making their product labels. Manufacturing 'overkill', a lack of production-line streamlining, and inappropriate or sub-optimal material and process choices can all lead to inflated label printing costs.
These costs can seem relatively small and inconsequential, but they do stack up over time. You could potentially save vast amounts of money annually by optimising and streamlining your label printing.
