Posie Packer Corp is pleased to announce that Norfolk Fruit Growers Association has chosen the new Posie Packer Produce Bag Labeling Machine as the cost effective method to apply the required time sensitive information labels to their apple bags on a specified bag location. Tom O'Neil, the General Manager of the Norfolk Fruit Growers Association says " We have satisfactorily finished our trials and look forward to using this machine for the 2010 season. Using pre-printed labels is a low cost method to not only meet today's traceabilty and food safety information needs, but also tomorrow's. The label has the advantage of having the real estate to put this information in a human readable form for the consumer on our bags. Our people are too valuable and costly to manually apply these necessary labels. Whether our customers prefer to use clear or paper labels - this machine can handle them. We just want to continue to sell the best apples on the planet. What information would you like on your label?"
About Posie Packer Corp.
Posie Packer Corp. (posiepacker.com) is a Canadian agri-machine manufacturer of equipment for high volume processing and packaging of fresh cut flowers and labeling produce bags. The new produce bag labeling machine can handle plain, gusseted or zip lock produce bags as well as apply a second label (merchandizing) during the same machine cycle. The modular format used in this strictly electro-mechanical machine, allows it to be easily customized for a particular sized plastic bag required by a produce item (apples, potatoes, carrots, and citrus etc.) and/or a required label location. The machine will allow packers to use existing automatic bag filling equipment. The label could be imprinted with any or all of the following information: SSI-EID code, RFID code, PIDC code or PO release, Julian Date, Lot Number, Military or Standard Time, PLU or Commodity code, Company Name, Country and State of Origin, Harvest Crew or Member ID, and Certification. This machine will minimize the labor costs associated with meeting today's need for food safety and product traceability.
