It’s impossible to ignore the escalating prices of wholesale ingredients: flour has tripled in some market and eggs have more than doubled. Some may not realize it, but the best way to control food costs is to have an effective food rotation system in place, maximizing the shelf life of foods while keeping waste at bay. What’s the best way to do this? Clear and efficient food labeling.
14% of respondents said they do not currently use any kind of food labeling. Some had a complete lack of knowledge about food labels and many noted they were simply looking for an easier food labeling system. Food rotation labels save an average of 10.6 hours of labor a week and reduce wasted food disposal by $210 per week. That equals an average annual savings of $15,330.
DayMark offers tri-lingual labels, as well as labels that dissolve in any temperature of water in less than 30 seconds, leaving behind no adhesive residue (which can harbor harmful bacteria). They eliminate all the guesswork, and allow users to track food items by names, date, time, use-by date, and use-by time. DayMark labels are green products, as well. They are printed with soy ink and are 100% biodegradable. Even DayMark's packaging materials are made of recycled products.
