British retailer Marks & Spencer introduced a new laser marking method to mark avocado, hoping to reduce paper waste. From changing sticky paper labels to laser printing, it can save 10 tons of label & backing paper and 5 tons of adhesive per year.
Avocados are harvested at the country of origin and graded according to their source before being shipped to the United Kingdom. Upon arrival, ripe avocado is placed in a tray and delivered to a conveyor belt, where it is then annotated by a laser marking machine.
The laser marking machine will mark the retailer's logo, the best date to eat, the country of origin, and the cashier code on the outer layer of the avocado. M & S claims that the intense light hitting the outer skin of the fruit will only discolor and fester the outermost peel, not destructive to the fruit, and operate very accurately.
Fruit technology experts said, "Given all the success in the practice of avocado, we can extend this laser tagging technology to a wide variety of other fruits and vegetables and we will have the opportunity to reduce our products exponentially The waste of packaging is very exciting. "
In recent years, the application of laser marking technology in fruits has become more and more widespread. Some imported fruits or local fruits with certain brands, in order to highlight the brand awareness, will be labeled on the surface of fruits, indicating the brand, origin and other information. This label is easily torn or faked, laser marking technology can be marked on the peel, not only does not destroy the fruit inside the flesh, but also play a security role, unique and innovative.
