After the avocado is harvested in its place of origin, it is graded according to its source and then shipped to the UK. After arriving, the ripe avocado is placed in a tray and sent to the conveyor belt, and then the information is marked by the laser machine.
Laser marking will print the retailer’s logo, the best date of consumption, the country of origin and the cash register code on the outer layer of the avocado. M & S claims that strong light hitting the outer skin of the fruit will only make the outermost skin peel off and fade, which is not destructive to the fruit, and the operation can be very precise.
Fruit technical experts said, “In view of the success of all the practices on avocado, we can promote this laser labeling technology to a variety of other fruits and vegetables. We will have the opportunity to reduce the product exponentially. The waste of packaging is very exciting. ”
In recent years, the application of laser marking technology in fruits has become more and more extensive. Some imported fruits or local fruits with a certain brand will be labeled on the surface of the fruit to highlight the brand awareness, indicating the brand, origin and other information. This kind of label is easy to be torn or falsified. The laser marking technology can mark on the peel, which not only does not damage the pulp of the fruit, but also plays a role of anti-counterfeiting. It is unique and innovative.
