Laser Printer

Laser Application Technologies from the USA is applying for permission to use its Natural Light Labelling system, designed to get rid of stick-on produce labels. The laser only barely penetrates the surface (3 cells deep), does not affect the fruit or vegetable and is safe for consumers. If the application is successful the system is to be used on avocados, bananas, melons, mangos, and kiwis, anticipating approval within the next six to twelve months. Hopefully followed by other fruits and vegetables (apples, pears, peaches, tomatoes, potatoes, and peppers) later.
