Agricultural Sticker Applications
Price Gun & Label Purpose
Applying labels to agricultural products can be difficult due to moisture or dirt. Price Gun Store has a selection of quality labels available in a synthetic, outdoor material designed to adhere and remain resistant against water and UV sunlight on planters, pots and produce boxes. Standard labels are paper material and will deteriorate when wet.
- Green Houses - Synthetic labels give growers the power to label their products without worrying about the information becoming illegible. Our synthetic labels are resistant to water and will remain adhered to any clean, dry surface. Information such as price, item code, and plant name can be printed on a synthetic label.
- Produce – Farmers who grow fresh produce often need to label it with information like the field code, date, batch code, and/or crew information prior to shipping it out to retail stores. This ensures freshness to the consumer and also allows the farmer to track and account for their products throughout the supply chain.
- Organic – Organic agriculture is grown with nature in mind. More and more consumers seek organic products. For this reason, it is important for farmers who grow various types of organic products to label them with information such as “USDA Organic”, “Non-GMO”, “pesticide free”, “no antibiotics”, or other information required by government or demanded by the consumer.
The government has intervened in the process of labeling agriculture to establish standards of safety, human health, and the integrity of the agriculture industry. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has strict rules set in place that define how food and food products should be labeled. General food labeling requirements establish a set of standards that require food to be labeled properly and legibly.
Per the FDA, food labels should be comprised of two major components. The first component is the Principal Display Panel (PDP). It is the part of the package that is visible to the consumer when they see the product on shelves in stores. Certain packages have two or more surfaces that qualify as PDPs. Information like the name of the product and the net quantity should be present on the PDP label. The other component the FDA calls for is the Information Panel. This is displayed directly to the right of the PDP and contains the following information:
- Manufacturer, packager, or distributer name, address, and contact information
- Ingredients in the product and nutritional information
- Allergy information
As explained above, label gun labels are typically used to compliment the prime labels and static information on the package. Variable information (changing information) such as dates and codes are areas label gun can be a tremendous asset.
