4 Reasons to Use Food Rotation Labels

A simple food rotation label system can help save time, money and significantly reduce the amount of food waste from spoilage for any restaurant.

Ensuring food freshness is an integral part to any food safety plan, and the most inexpensive and efficient way to ensure the freshness and safety of food is a simple food safety labeling system. Here are NCCO’s top four reasons to start using food rotation labels.

1. Save time, save money

One of the greatest features of food rotation labels are the ease of use that saves the restaurant operator time. Instead of having a food rotation system centralized around a marker and masking tape, standardizing food rotation with color coded pre-printed labels allows every person in the kitchen to quickly and easily identify the right food at the right time.

2. Fresh look, fresh food

Along with “day of the week labels” that have each day printed on them, you can maintain better inventory management with “Use By” or “Use First” labels that standardize an efficient first in, first out inventory control system.

3. Clean confidence

Avoid cross contamination by taking advantage of multiple adhesive op­tions on labels including dissolvable labels that don’t leave a residue after washing, making it safe to stack containers. Food labels also give operators the peace of mind knowing of what each container contains, or what it con­tained, helping you avoid issues with consumer food allergies.

4. Ensure success

Food safety labels offer the ability to vastly improve inventory organization in any establishment at a relatively inexpensive cost. Food rotation labels ensure health inspectors and workers that the kitchen environment is up to code and serving the freshest food possible.
