FQSI Inc. has developed a smart label that senses spoilage in fresh meat and poultry products. freshQ™ is a stick-on freshness sensor that is applied to the outside of fresh-wrapped meat and poultry packages and detects food-borne bacteriological levels through the wrap. When the inside of the “Q” on the label is tangerine orange, the product is fresh. When the bacteria count builds to a critical level, the orange turns to gray to indicate spoilage.

Stork’s RevoFormer, an advanced low-pressure forming machine, combines high capacity, high product quality and low cost of ownership. Unlike high-pressure formers, where products can display non-conformities in relation to the intended shape, products formed in the RevoFormer retain their typical shape and weight. The machine’s rotating mechanism also produces outputs that are three times those achieved using high-pressure forming. The RevoFormer uses air, not water, to assist the release of products from the mould.
