The challenge: Edit food tag for the buffets of 70 hotels in Norway

Scandic Hotels is the largest Nordic hotel operator with a network of 230 hotels in seven countries and almost 9000 employees. When the new EU regulation on food information to consumers came into force at the end of 2014, the Norwegian Evolis distributor BUYSEC AS proposed the new all-in-one Price Tag solution from Evolis to the food & beverage director at Scandic Norway. Up to then, each Scandic restaurant printed the food labels for their buffets on paper with the consequence that they were difficult to clean and did not last very long.



The solution: 70 all-in-one Price Tag solutions including a Zenius card printer

Scandic reckoned that not only would the Evolis solution voluntarily comply with EU regulations and the general philosophy of Scandic Hotels, but also make huge time savings for his staff and provide clear signage for the guests. In total, 70 Evolis solutions were purchased to equip each Scandic hotel Norway, including a Zenius printer, card design software cardPresso, blank plastic cards and printing ribbons.

The result: Time saving and responsiveness for clear and hygienic signage

Several hundreds of food tags are issued each week showing the name of the dish, the ingredients and allergens.

For the breakfast buffet, different card designs are prepared centrally with the software cardPresso then send to all 70 hotels to be printed locally using the Evolis printer. For the lunch buffet, the hotels design and print themselves every day new food labels on site.



“The system from Evolis enables us to print very quickly esthetically-pleasing and hygienic food labels. BUYSEC followed the progress of the project very closely and was very responsive to our needs,” explains Morten Malting, food & beverage director Scandic Norway
