Seafood & Meat Labels

Print Seafood Labels with QuickLabel® Printers

Seafood & Meat processors print their seafood & meat labels on-demand to accurately track and identify fresh meat and fresh and frozen fish. Also, to cost-effectively promote the quality and taste of prepared food. Using a QuickLabel color label printer to make labels with photos and brand logos is a cost-effective way to promote their products.

The QuickLabel QL-300 is the world’s first five-color, toner-based tabletop printer designed specifically for production label printing. For instance, this printer goes beyond the traditional four-color printing process because it has the ability also to print white and CMYK in a single pass. More importantly, the QuickLabel QL-300 prints highly UV- and scratch-resistant labels that can withstand the challenging demands of seafood and meat packaging applications.

With on-demand printing, seafood and meat processors can make the exact number of food labels. Also, case labels with color logos and product images can promote brand awareness to achieve a stronger preference.

Proven Printer Designs That Are Easy to Load and Operate

The United States and Canada require each package of fresh meat, fish, and shellfish to have a Method of Production label. To clarify, this indicates farm-raised versus wild-caught or grass-fed. It also shows the Country of Origin statement. Furthermore, a lot number or batch code enables distributors and retailers throughout the supply chain to identify and trace the product.

Moreover, a prepared label must also include an ingredients list with allergen warnings and nutrition facts. Also, Canada requires bilingual information on seafood labels, such as English and French.

QuickLabel printers allow seafood processors to print their seafood labels with all the required label content. Fresh fish labels must include weight, species, item code, barcode, country of origin, method of production, and market price. So, our barcode printers come ERP integrable.

Engineered with field-proven designs, QuickLabel printers are easy to load and operate. Their rapid printing speeds, high resolution, and custom label-making capabilities make them ideal choices for seafood labeling requirements. Only QuickLabel gives you the user-friendly operation, flexible and productive printing, and low cost of ownership that produces professional, economic labels.

Above all, seafood and meat processors will have access to print label graphics such as a HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) safety certification logo, as well as an ISO 22000 symbol to emphasize food safety practices.

Buy Labels and Tags

If printing labels in-house, QuickLabel sells blank labels in substrate materials specifically designed to withstand the freezing, refrigeration, and moisture exposure found in food processing.

Our Material #125 Polyart® tag is popular for clam bags and mussel bags. Our Material #03 pressure-sensitive Kimdura® labels are often used for seafood room-to-frozen case and carton labeling.

Print Seafood Labels with Seafood Sustainability Logos

Buying sustainable seafood has become necessary for many consumers. Whole Foods markets have recently begun using a color-coded label to distinguish sustainable seafood. If products are approved, it’s easy to print a Dolphin-Safe Certification on labels for seafood that contain tuna. As well as the seals and logos of various voluntary sustainable seafood organizations.
