Fresh Strips are simple plastic stickers that get attached to food and medical supplies packaging. If the packaging is exposed to excessive heat the Fresh Strip changes color irreversibly indicating the packaged good is no longer safe.
Our solution provides assurance to consumers, producers and retailers of the safety of heat sensitive goods and improves cold chain management.
From the moment the items are packaged, Fresh Strips start to monitor their environment. When exposed to unsuitably high temperatures, the color changes quickly from green to red, indicating the product is no longer suitable for consumption – keeping the consumer safe.
At correct storage temperatures, the color change occurs very slowly. In this way, the Fresh Strip more accurately represents the true state of the refrigerated product as compared to a static expiration label.
The temperature and rate at which the color changes can be customized according to the needs of the application.
