LABELLING PROBLEMS SOLVED Keeping tabs on use-by

dates and operating good stock control for loose foods in a butcher’s shop is always a bit of a nightmare. It is oſten difficult to

show EHOs that you are in control if you cannot show documented evidence. Oſten, they also want you to prove when products were cooked, defrosted or first frozen etc, etc, etc. I love simple, economic

and practical solutions to tricky problems. I was therefore very interested to learn about a new hand labelling machine that could help solve most of these issues. Craig Tomas, well known

butcher from Wolverhampton and Exec member, has recently helped to design the “Judo MK2” manufactured by Sato. Te new hand gun provides a double row of printing as per the graphic (right). Te top row has

headings for just about everything you can think of and the subsequent rows of characters can provide dates, times and price information. Tere are also enough characters to include a simple batch code reference. Craig reckons the machine

saves him 20-30 minutes a day and allows different applications and options from

one machine. John Taylor from Coventry, who has been successfully testing a prototype of the machine, agrees that the machine is very easy to use and portrays a more professional image on product packs. Sato are currently offering

an introductory deal to NCB members. Check out their ad on this page. n
