Genuine Daydots Label Adhesive & Quality
In 1985, Daydots introduced the first ever color-coded, day-of-the-week food rotation labels to the foodservice industry. Since then, the day-of-the-week food rotation colors have become an industry standard.
Daydots labels allow you to easily practice the First-In, First-Out (FIFO) method of food rotation, a principle that focuses on having foods that are received or prepared first being served first. This helps maintain quality and prevent food waste.
Other companies make food rotation labels, but only Ecolab offers genuine Daydots — the label that pioneered the industry.

MASKING TAPE...A STICKY SITUATION
Some foodservice operators use masking tape for food rotation because they think it is a less expensive solution. The reality is that masking tape:
- Is difficult to control
- Often drives up actual costs
- May result in difficult-to-read, inconsistent labeling
Most significantly, the adhesive residue left on pans by masking tape increases the risks of a health code violation.
WHY IS MASKING TAPE ADHESIVE RESIDUE A HEALTH CODE VIOLATION?
It’s because of the cross-contamination risk that tape adhesive residue creates.
Sticky residue can harbor bacteria, and the cross-contamination risk occurs when adhesive residue on the outside surface of a pan contacts the clean inside surface of another pan when the pans are stacked.
This can result in a critical violation if observed by the health inspector.
Serving Safe Food Every Day
SAFE FOOD FIRST
Labeling is critical for the safety of foods, and ensuring food safety is critical to protecting your brand. In some cases, food looks fine, but date-marking food appropriately with Use-By dates is the only way to ensure that food is used within safe limits before bacteria or other pathogens have grown to dangerous levels. Daydots labels play an integral role in ensuring the food you prepare is safe to serve and safe to eat.
BEYOND SAFETY - SERVE THE HIGHEST QUALITY FOOD
You not only want to serve food that is safe to eat, you want to serve the freshest food possible—because when it comes to taste, quality is important. Freshness, wholesomeness, taste, color, aroma and appearance are all integral to the quality of food. Even when food smells bad, tastes sour, or turns strange colors, it may not make someone sick, but that lack of quality is usually what impacts customer satisfaction and repeat business. Daydots labels help ensure you always serve the highest quality, freshest, and best tasting food possible.
