Seafood Labels

Print Seafood Labels with QuickLabel Printers

Seafood processors print their own seafood labels on demand for two reasons:

  1. To properly track and identify fresh and frozen fish
  2. To cost-effectively promote the quality and taste of prepared seafood

Print Labels with a QuickLabel Color Label Printer

Using a your own QuickLabel color label printer, to make seafood labels with photos and brand logos, is a cost-effective way to promote your seafood on cases and packs.

You can print seafood labels on demand, printing the exact quantity of labels you need at any given time.

What’s more, you can even print custom labels for each seafood product or personalize for each distributor. Case labels with color logos and product images can promote greater brand awareness and create more preference for your seafood brand, even among foodservice customers.

Print Labels with a QuickLabel Barcode Printer

In the United States and Canada, each package of fresh fish or shellfish must be labeled with a Method of Production label that indicates whether the seafood is farm-raised or wild caught and a Country of Origin statement.

In addition, a lot number or batch code must be used to enable distributors and retailers throughout the seafood supply chain to identify and trace seafood. QuickLabel printers allow seafood processors to print their own seafood labels with all required label content.

Our barcode label printers can be integrated with ERP systems to print seafood labels as fresh fish is cut and weighed. Fresh fish labels must be printed with fish weight, fish species, item code, barcode, country of origin, method of production and market price.

Seafood processors can also print seafood label graphics such as a seafood HACCP safety certification logo (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) or a ISO 22000 symbol to emphasize food safety practices.

Prepared seafood labels also include an ingredients list with allergen warnings and nutrition facts panels. In Canada, all required information on seafood labels must be bilingual, printed in both English and French, which your QuickLabel printer can take care of.

Buy Seafood Labels and Tags

If you want to print your own seafood labels, QuickLabel sells blank labels in substrate materials specifically designed for seafood labeling to withstand freezing, refrigeration and moisture exposure.

Our Material #125 Polyart® tag is frequently used for clam bags and mussel bags, while our Material #03 pressure-sensitive Kimdura® labels are often used for room-to-frozen case and carton labeling of seafood.

Print Seafood Labels with Seafood Sustainability Logos

Buying sustainable seafood has become important to many consumers, and Whole Foods has recently begun using a color code label to distinguish sustainable seafood.

If your products are approved, you can easily print the Dolphin Safe Certification on your labels for seafood that contain tuna, as well as the seals and logos of various voluntary sustainable seafood organizations.
