LED Solutions for the Food Sector
Observation is our first choice of tool when evaluating the quality of a product. “Illuminating correctly”, therefore, means allowing the customer to comprehend, at a glance, the properties and the freshness of food, thus speeding up the selection and purchase process.
In thirty years of activity in the design and production of electronic LED systems to communicate and illuminate, plus long-term and ongoing partnerships with the most significant brands of LED production, Hitechled has gained an in-depth and well-established technical knowledge in the selection and application of light sources.
Our hallmark is the ability to customise the product.
White light is needed to provide lighting for fish that highlights the cold tones of the food, emphasising its shine and freshness. The best colour rendering is obtained through lighting using a light source with a temperature of about 4000K.
Fruit and vegetables
Fruit and vegetables have strong colour contrasts. It is, therefore, very important to emphasise both the warm tones (red and yellow) to give shine to the products and the range of greens to give a sense of freshness to leaf products. As a result, the chromaticity coordinates of the ideal white light indicate the warmest colour temperature with a better rendering of red, green and blue
The aim is to slightly enhance the typical yellow colour of cheese, but without exaggerating, so as not to alter the white of ricotta and mozzarella. For these products, you also need to choose a specific white light, whereas the choice of colour rendering can be wider, ranging from warm to natural light, with the spectra of the prominent colours of red, green and blue.
Illuminating meat in a professional manner, slightly enhancing the red parts but avoiding the making the white parts of the fat look yellow at all costs while minimising the pink light inside the refrigerator calls for a specific high-quality LED light, where the chromatic spectrum of red is more prominent.
The elegance of the layout of pastry products inside well-designed refrigerated display cabinets certainly deserves lighting that enhances not only the sense of freshness, but also the details of the shapes and colours. The most suitable light is, therefore, white which must have all three prominent spectra of red, green and blue.
