What caught my eye at TRA Marketplace 2019? By Mary Jane Sampson
With the ever increasing news reports of food tampering, I discovered several solutions to the potential problems with third party delivery. I saw bags with sticky pull off tape. Once the bag is sealed, the tape is ripped off by the consumer. There are all different sizes for all types of containers. I found tamper visible boxes or containers where the tab fits in the slot and will show evidence of tampering when opened. It can be as simple as a sticker sealing the container to show it has NOT been opened, or a more elaborate sack or box. There are many choices available. I was told that 70% of third party deliverers admitted to “sampling” the food or a least snitching a French fry. With the recent alcohol delivery laws, product tampering will surely become a topic for our members to consider.
