Few labels see the kind of challenges of meat labels. They must stand up to extreme processing conditions, freezing temperatures and contact with moisture during application and storage. Packages can use odd shapes, demanding a matching label in a custom shape. All meat labels and label adhesives are subject to detailed FDA requirements for indirect food contact. In addition, consumer trends have greatly shaped the industry. Pushes for Certified Organic meat, pasture-raised animals, free-range poultry, grass-fed beef, meat with humanitarian certifications and vegetarian fed chickens impact label design for many brands.
