Calavo adopts PakSense
TXi label as shipping tool
Dec 7, 2007 8:46 AM
Calavo Growers, supplier of fresh and processed avocados and other perishable food products, has adopted PakSense Incís TXi label to track time and temperature of all products during shipping. PakSense labels will be used on a widespread scale on all avocado shipments as well as shipments of fresh and frozen guacamole and other product lines such as papayas. Use of the labels will be combined with Calavoís ProRipeVIP acoustic firmness technology and other quality assurance programs.
ProRipeVIP uses sound waves to measure firmness and weight of avocados and enables Calavo to accurately sort fruit according to degree of ripeness and size. This enables Calavo to offer consistent products to its customers. Now, PakSense time and temperature labels will be used during shipping to help ensure the cold chain is maintained all the way to the customer, essentially extending quality assurance into distribution channels and completing the quality control loop.
PakSense labels, which are encased in foodgrade packaging, are small enough to be placed inside Calavo containers, where they collect surface temperature of product versus general ambient temperature information. These labels will not bruise or otherwise damage fruit.
