Easy To Use & Correct Everytime


Our label templates use a cloud-based management portal, allowing users to add new labels across several locations with the click of a button.

Depending on your needs, you can use our food date label maker to print everything from packed on, sell by, or expiration dates to grab ‘n go items and anything else you can imagine with our easy to use default or customizable templates.

Remember, entrusting this process to handwritten labels by employees leaves your company vulnerable to inaccurate or unreadable information which can lead to legal and financial risk.

Ensure Food Safety 

Surely, your staff would never knowingly serve expired or spoiled food to your customers, and accurate expiration date labels on all your food containers can make sure that never happens, even by accident.

Food that is past its expiration date might become moldy, rotten, or grow bacteria and other microbes. Eating this type of food can lead to serious foodborne illnesses. Even mild cases of food poisoning can be devastating for a business in terms of reputation and financial liability.

The best way to avoid a litany of negative consequences ranging from negative reviews to a customer becoming seriously ill, is to keep all stored food labeled with the name of the food, the date it was prepared, the date of expiration, and the name of the person who prepared the food in case additional coaching is required.

Time Saving Features

Label templates are easily created and centrally managed using a cloud based management portal that allows you to add new date code items to all of your locations with a single click of a button.

  • Update all locations with one click
  • Update product names, expiration periods, categories, and other settings remotely
  • Expiration periods are customizable to fit your exact needs

The jolt food labeling system saves your staff valuable time, allowing them to focus on the most important part of their job – giving each and every customer an exceptional experience. 

With the auto-calculating function of Jolt’s food labeling system, all you need to do is set the appropriate number of hours, days, etc., for the specific type of food you are labeling, and the machine will automatically print labels with the correct expiration date. Your staff does not need to count out the hours or days manually; the correct expiration date will be calculated and added to the label automatically. This saves you time and also eliminates the risk of your staff writing the wrong expiration date.

Remote access to the labeling software means that managers can add, remove, or update labels from anywhere, without having to be physically present in the restaurant. The wireless or wired options allow you to ensure that no matter what your network situation is, Jolt can quickly connect to the network of your choice. 

Writing labels by hand can take quite a long time, especially if the employee makes a mistake and needs to write new labels for an entire batch. Jolt label printers, on the other hand, can print 6 labels per second, each with perfect accuracy and in an easy-to-read font.
