Timestrip® time and temperature indicators are vital ingredient in US food parcel kits



An American start-up business that is set to revolutionise the old fashioned ‘food parcel’ has chosen Timestrip indicators to provide the in-transit temperature monitoring element of their innovative new container kits, to alert recipients to temperature abuse and thus help to prevent consumption of foods affected by adverse heat exposure.

Time &Temperature Indicators from Timestrip® are the vital ingredient in packaging kits designed for new range of home-cooked food parcels, showing loved ones their food has arrived within USDA transit temperature guidelines.

From Home With Love, which only launched in December 2013, is already providing hundreds of home cooks across the US with the validated packaging necessary to send home cooked frozen meals to loved ones away at college, on work assignment or on military service.

They are including TimestripPlus Food indicators in their shipping kits so that the recipients can be assured that their lovingly prepared meals never went above 40F - as recommended by the USDA - while in transit.

The TimestripPlus will alert to a breach above 40F and tracks cumulative time in increments of two hours and four hours, thus adhering to the USDA recommendation that food should not be consumed if exposed to temperatures over 40F for two hours or greater.

The patented technology behind the TimestripPlus Food Indicator is irreversible and failsafe – with no moving parts or electronics used in the production. These low cost ‘smart’ Food Labels are activated simply by finger pressure and applied to frozen food containers as they are placed into the specially designed shipping cases supplied by From Home With Love.

James Delaney, FHWL Founder and CEO is delighted with the adoption of the Timestrip Plus technology, commented that “Time-Temperature Indicators specific to the food industry are long overdue and the opportunity for us to offer existing clients and prospective customers Timestrip’s advanced temperature monitoring indicator will benefit our company’s overall efforts as we continue to enhance our line of Reusable Insulated Container Kits.

"We’re looking forward to working with Timestrip on their latest product offering with great enthusiasm.”
