PakSense to provide Thinfilm Smart Labels to food industry

FBR Staff Writer Published 02 April 2014

US-based sensing products developer PakSense will distribute Thinfilm Smart Labels to food suppliers and retailers, as part of a commercial distribution agreement with printed electronics products maker Thin Film Electronics.

The Thinfilm Smart Labels will be provided to produce, meat and seafood suppliers in North America, South America and Central America.

It complements PakSense time and temperature monitors, and helps identify if certain temperature ranges have been exceeded.

With the latest deal, PakSense customers will be able to use multiple Thinfilm labels in a shipment, which provides added visibility into temperature variations.

The company has already placed an order for the printed electronic temperature labels, which are expected to be delivered to customers in early 2015.

PakSense CEO David Oster said, "By introducing Thinfilm's printed electronics technology to the perishable foods space, PakSense will provide another tool to help ensure overall product integrity and reduce unnecessary waste, while arming producers, retailers and consumers with the information they need to make smarter decisions,"

The company caters to food retailers and suppliers with solutions to monitor the condition of perishable goods throughout the supply chain.
