How the indicator works

The Tempix temperature indicator will reveal whether a particular product has been handled at too high temperatures during its journey from the producer to the final customer. When you see the black bar in the Tempix indicator, you can rest assured that the product has been kept at the correct temperature throughout the cold chain. Should the product have been exposed to temperatures above the recommended limit at any stage of its handling, the black bar will disappear from the window. The barcode will also be blocked out, meaning it cannot be read at the till. The indicator therefore acts as a guarantee that the product has been handled correctly from the producer all the way to the store’s cashier. Once the product is scanned at the till, it becomes the consumer’s responsibility to handle it correctly.


Together with its partners, Tempix has developed a complete system and product offer for applying the temperature indicator to food products. The Tempix head office is located in Järvsö, in Hälsingland, we also have an office in Solna, Stockholm. The company is managed today by the CEO, Marko Arola.
