What is a tamper-evident label?

Tamper-evident labels and seals offer a simple and effective means of securing products. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), defines a tamper-evident label or seal as “one having one or more indicators or barriers to entry which, if breached or missing, can reasonably be expected to provide visible evidence to consumers that tampering has occurred.” A tamper-evident label distinctive by design. The material used to manufacturer these labels is not readily available to the public, so it is difficult to duplicate.

Common Uses of Tamper-Evident Labels

There are a variety of uses for tamper-evident labels across many industries, but the most common use is to ensure the safety and security of products when they reach an end consumer. Whether the product is food, medication, or a piece of equipment, buyers want to be sure that what’s in the box is what was initially packed in the box, free of any and all outside tampering.

In recent years, the popularity and availability of food delivery to your home or office has been made possible through services like Uber Eats, DoorDash, and Grubhub.

Benefits of Tamper-Evident Labels

Loss Prevention

Tamper-proof labels will prevent jars from being opened prior to purchase which will keep product from spoiling on the shelf and prevent loss.

Safety / Peace of mind

Customers taking food / drinks home know that the product has not been tampered with since leaving the kitchen. Restaurants and bars also know they have another layer of protection when using these labels.

Easy to Use

Tamper-evident labels and seals are adhesive-backed and are easy to apply. The small amount of time it takes to use the product is well worth the security and safety it brings.
