Hey Dude, Your Avocado Has a Tattoo!!

The AP -
Something high-tech is happening in the produce aisle at some Swedish supermarkets, where laser marks have replaced labels on the organic avocados and sweet potatoes.
Swedish supermarket chain ICA started experimenting in December with 'natural branding,' a process that uses low-energy carbon dioxide lasers to remove the pigment from the outer skins of fruits and vegetables.
The laser beams create tattoo-like patterns - in this case the product's name, country of origin and code number - similar to the way hot irons brand cattle. If its test is successful, ICA, which has 1,350 stores across Sweden, hopes to cut down on the stickers and packaging it now uses to identify its organic produce.

A good idea but they need to come up with a way for it to work on over ripe fruit.

I recently saw a photo of some vanilla beans that were still growing that looked like they had been given a laser brand (like a mini version of a cattle brand). Too small for a produce label, maybe they have a problem with produce rustling...

Oh man they're going to start putting advertising on steaks, aren't they?

I'd really like to be able to buy a t-bone without having to see GOLDENPALACE.COM etched into it.

I bet the conspiracy nuts go to town with this one.

they've been doing oranges for a couple of years.


I find those darn plastic fruit stickers years later in the compost and garden
One less unnecessary piece of crap insulting the environment.
