Utilizing V300 with Frozen Food Packaging

Providing Transparency for Consumers

When your product lands on the shelves in supermarkets, you want to make sure that it is the best quality possible. That is because food safety in the United States has grown as a consumer concern over the years, especially following the COVID-19 pandemic.

One food safety trend that shifted as a result of the pandemic is the automation of the process of packaging food. Part of this process includes printing and labeling of products. When shoppers go around collecting their groceries, they expect that what they are picking up is fresh and safe to consume.

V300 is a resin-based thermal transfer ribbon that can help print necessary information on various food and beverage products, even frozen food.

Importance of Labeling Frozen Food Packaging

Packaging frozen food comes with many challenges. For example, labeling must be able to withstand low temperatures so that consumers can clearly read the best by dates printed on frozen foods. An expiration date is a date after which a product should no longer be consumed. If your printing method cannot handle the temperature at which frozen food should be stored, you risk making the date hard to read.

Expiration dates and lot numbers are important when it comes to a product recall. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recalls about 300 products every year. In the event of a recall, the printed information helps warn customers of potential health risks.

So, whether you’re using stand-up pouches or any other type of packaging material and substrate, V300 frozen food packaging can help ensure your product is of the highest quality for consumers.

Frozen food, in particular, comes with different elements to consider when packaging. It is com

monly packaged with various options, like cardboard and metal, but the most common form of packaging is polyethylene. V300 ribbons cover printing on both high-density and low-density polyethylene.
