Illuminating fresh produce with typical bulbs that emit heat causes food to sweat in its packaging.
(PRWEB UK) 14 March 2013
It has been reported that Welsh company, Sedna LED believes that illuminating fresh produce with typical bulbs that emit heat causes food to sweat in its packaging. This contributes to the 300,000 tonnes of food waste that supermarkets produce each year. A spokesperson from the firm claims that “LED light sources can be placed in close vicinity to food for an enhanced aesthetic effect, but with no danger of premature food deterioration.”
The news comes after supermarket giant, Sainsbury, recently made the switch to LED lighting in one of its stores, to take advantage of the economic and environmental benefits.
Online retailer, Simple Lighting, offers a stunning collection of LED lights suitable for the entire home, including LED tape lights and strip lights. A representative from the firm shares their thoughts on the subject.
“It will be interesting to see if supermarkets turn to LEDs in order to reduce their food wastage. LEDs only lose 20% of their energy to heat loss compared to 80% of a typical fluorescent bulb, therefore helping food to stay fresher for long.
“For this reason many people choose to have LED lights in their kitchens. Not only does this help food stay fresher, but helps households save a considerable amount of money on energy too.”
Established in 2009, Simple Lighting Company aims to provide high quality lighting at some of the most competitive prices on the web. The company has grown considerably in recent years and supplies over 4000 products, specialising in LED lighting, LED tape, LED strip lights as well as indoor and outdoor lighting.
