Food labelling and rotation of food is vital
in protecting against foodborne illnesses. Labelling food consistently and
correctly ensures that you are serving the freshest and safest food, as well as
reducing costly waste. Employing the FIFO (First In, First Out) stock rotation
method is best practice, and should be supported by a food labelling system.
Fildes Food Safety stock a large range of food
labels which can be incorporated into your food safety plan. The range includes
day of the week, best before and use by, as well as dietary and allergen
advisory labels with the options of dissolvable and standard adhesives
The nature of the adhesive that bonds the label to the substrate is a
key component that is often overlooked. Taking this into consideration prior to
purchasing labels will save time and money while also ensuring clear and
concise information is always visible. Essentially, food labels come in four
different adhesive types removable, permanent, durable and dissolvable.
If you’re unsure which label type to purchase, please feel free to
