Brother UK partners with Planglow to support safe food labelling

Brother UK has partnered with food labelling and plant-based packaging specialist Planglow to support food safety and compliance in catering and hospitality.

The new collaboration sees Brother’s range of labelling solutions become fully compatible with Planglow’s LabelLogic Live app. This enables food service users to create, amend, update, and print labels with ease, as they move to enhance food safety and compliance.

The subscription-based service supports individual cafés, restaurants, and delis through to multi-site caterers. Customers can create and roll out data and templates across their network from the head office, without having to monitor for consistency or errors.

The platform also allows bespoke food orders to be sent straight from the till to the printer, creating clear, accurate, and durable labels for packaging, key for foodservice operators to achieve best-practice compliance following the introduction of food labelling legislation, Natasha’s Law. It requires clear signposting of any potential allergens in the clear and distinct text on pre-packaged for direct sale products.

Aaron Hopkinson, product manager for labelling at Brother UK, said: “The new partnership with Planglow will help resellers provide the solutions their customers need to meet the new food safety legislation and take advantage of the efficiencies that come with technology-enabled labelling.

“Planglow adds to a host of specialist partners, from software providers to expert technology resellers, which complement our comprehensive portfolio of print devices. These partnerships deliver the expertise, technology, and supporting software that helps print partners provide the support commercial kitchens need to label products more productively, accurately, and compliantly.”

The Planglow software compatibility enhances Brother’s existing line of label printers, which come fitted with wireless cloud printing capability. This allows kitchens to keep food preparation areas clear of wires and technology for safety while maximising worktop space.

Brother’s collaboration with the tech provider is one of a series of partnerships recently announced to enhance its specialist labelling offering.

Aaron added, “We’re continually working to evolve and improve our range of labelling devices as demand increases for more efficient solutions. These include two new RJ mobile printing models with industry-leading specifications and our TJ range of rugged desktop devices, designed to help high-volume food service operators keep up with fast-paced manufacturing environments. These offer another string to the bow of resellers that are continuing to help their customers navigate changing labelling demands.”
