SATO exhibits their food labelling solutions at the Food and Drink Expo 2016


Heidelberg, 13 April 2016 – SATO, a leading global provider of Auto-ID solutions that empower workforces, will exhibit the future of streamlined food preparation at the Food and Drink Expo in Birmingham from 18th to 20th April (Stand L135 – Hall 7). To meet the demands of modern restaurants, kitchens, bakeries, etc the company will display its latest labelling and barcode technology designed to enhance safety and efficiency.    


Food must be labelled from preparation to final product, and food traceability regulations in Europe even require manufacturers to label a product that has previously been defrosted. To minimise human error and ensure food is safe for consumption SATO’s TH2 printers feature an internal real-time clock that automatically calculates and prints the time and date onto the labels.


Additionally, SATO’s JUDO FOOD handheld labelling solution is the only handlabeller on the market to print the date and month in full, enabling users to easily improve food security as well as flexibility with 13-pre designed, most commonly used, food industry texts such as: ‘cooked on’, ‘defrosted on’, ‘storage temperature’ and ‘best before’.


Another highlight will be SATO’s Application Enabled Printing (AEP) CL4NX printer that can be used as a standalone printing solution, eliminating the need for costly computers while keeping hardware footprint to a minimum.


“The food industry will appreciate the improved productivity that AEP brings as it requires less training to operate printing labels by querying printer-stored or external databases automatically,” comments Neil Batchelor, General Manager - SATO Europe. “We have reliable solutions for all areas of the food industry, from preparation of ingredients in the kitchen, to the final product packaging”
