How it works

Overview of operation

Oli-TecTM is an intelligent  time and temperature label in that it mirrors the decay cycle of the product that it designed to compliment.

It is the responsibility of the manufacturer or producer to determine the “Key Dates” for “their products” (based on their own historical test data), and then an Oli-TecTM label is produced to exactly match these dates.

Oli-TecTM operates like a traffic light, green, amber, and red, indicating to the consumer the suitability for consumption in a simple, graphical manner, which is universally understood.

In the case of foodstuffs, the green state indicates “GOOD”, the Amber state indicates “BEST BEFORE”, and the red state indicates “USE BY”.  

In the case of Pharmaceuticals, the green state indicates “GOOD”, and the red state indicates “DISCARD”.

Oli-TecTM is both time and temperature sensitive, to account for different storage conditions.

What People Are Saying

"Sniff tests, taste tests and visual tests are all you can currently go on, whereas the label will absolutely mirror the degradation of that food subject to time and temperature."
