Supermarket meat displays, deli displays with sliced meats and salads, and fresh seafood displays also suffer color distortions when general purpose lighting emits damaging UV and excessive brightness that produces washed out colors. Poor lighting can slow sales, leaving fresh foods on the shelf to age and deteriorate.
Potentially hazardous perishable food mixtures that contain eggs, milk or cream, meat, poultry, fish, shellfish or other ingredients may provide an environment for the rapid growth of bacteria at normal room temperatures. Heat and light radiation from conventional lighting can unnecessarily accelerate bacterial growth, spoilage, and decomposition and promote photo oxidation. Chilled food displays should always be kept at a safe temperature of 41 degrees F or below to ensure consumer safety.
Promolux Safe Spectrum specialty lighting has been designed specifically for illuminating fresh food displays and has been tested in food science laboratories and universities and found to help prolong the shelf life of fresh food displays, particularly red meats, produce, and packaged foods.
