Nutritics has teamed up with Brother UK to create an integrated food labelling solution that uses a TD-2120N compact label printer to produce bespoke food labels at the touch of a button.
The solution will aim to provide an efficient, accurate way for food service firms to comply with new legislation dubbed Natasha’s Law, which was passed by the Government in September and means all foods that are pre-packed for direct sale must have a label that carries a full list of ingredients.
Lena Engel, marketing executive at Nutritics, said: “Our mission is to provide customers with the most reliable nutritional and accurate food labelling information on the market, delivering unrivalled levels of detail and compliance expertise.
“Teaming up with Brother means we can offer the food industry a fully-integrated system that automatically creates front-of-pack and back-of-pack labels, with all the nutrition and allergen information needed to meet and exceed the standards required by law.”
Ged Cairns, head of business unit at Brother UK, added: “Combining our hardware expertise with Nutritics’ world-leading software package is the latest in a number of recent initiatives we have designed to help food service businesses be compliant and successful.
“Our joint solution minimises the potential for human error in food labelling, as the information is calculated automatically and sent straight to the printer. Firms of all sizes can now manage the preparation and labelling of all their dishes in one easy-to-use platform, and allergy sufferers can make informed, safe choices when buying food.”
