Sealed With a Kiss

It’s not all that surprising that a recent survey carried out at Fresh Plaza by label company Data Label found that almost half the people questioned found that security sealing of products with tamper proof labels was a nuisance. Maybe the reason is that they see it as unnecessary because the majority of people don’t have any malicious thoughts when they are shopping for goods. Incidents of poisoning food or tampering with medicines or stealing an item are not something an average person thinks about. So why do they have to put up with mucking about trying to open a container or waiting for a tag to be removed as they go through a checkout?


The problem is that ‘stuff’ does happen to medicines, price labels, charity collection boxes, confidential documents and the like and there has to be a certain amount of confidence by the public when opening one of these items. Is it sealed? Yes. Good, then I know it’s not been tampered with, seen or damaged. The need for tamper-proof labels is usually brought to people’s attention when something dreadful happens. For example, when a deranged individual places an unpleasant or toxic type of material into food. It would be interesting to carry out a survey after there has been such an incident. It would not be surprising to see a significant reduction in the 49% that initially found tamper proof labels a nuisance, change their minds!

You might be able to seal a relationship with a kiss, but for everyday items, you need tamper-proof labelling!
