A revolutionary new reusable label for the catering industry, which can eliminate the need for at least 500 single-use labels, has been unveiled by Pro Foodservice Reps Ltd. PuraCycle labels help food service operators save money, eliminate waste, meet health standards and go green.
PuraCycle Remarkable labels, available for food containers and bottles, are made from highly recyclable materials and have a unique reusable whiteboard surface. Their durability, even through industrial dishwashers, helps prevent the accumulation of paper and tape waste entering the waste system.
These innovative labels come with ‘foodservice’ PuraCycle markers, which are non-toxic, odourless and cost effective. The pens contain resistant “wash-erase” ink that stays legible on PuraCycle labels even when exposed to either boiling or freezing water, steam or condensation.
Once used, ink can be simply erased with friction before washing the container and reusing. Therefore, there is no need to invest in a dedicated label printer.
PFR managing director Andy Piggin said: “Peeling, picking, scratching or scrubbing ordinary labels can leave a nasty residue that builds up over time. In contrast, our PuraCycle labels are an award winning, sustainable, cost-effective solution for every aspect of food service. They will change the way operators go about labelling prepared food”
“They are at least 10 times less expensive than dissolvable labels per use, having been engineered to sustain 500 dishwasher cycles. We believe outlets can start seeing savings in as little as 15 uses.”
PuraCycle Remarkable labels come in packs of 50 for containers and 25 for bottles with 3 pens. PuraCycle encourages customers to customize their labels with company logos, corporate colours, specific text, and sizing to suit their requirements.
PuraCycle is committed to designing eco-friendly and cost-effective solutions for all aspects of foodservice and will be launching new products to the range later in the year.
PuraCycle will be exhibiting at the Craft Guild of Chefs Universal Cookery and Food Festival in June.
