Gourmet and Specialty Fresh Meat Display Case Lighting

Image of Supermarket meat counter case lightingImproper fresh food retail lighting impacts meat displays in several ways. First, "regular" fluorescents and LED lighting can alter the color, smell, flavor, of meat and increase the rapid rate of spoilage significantly affecting the salesability of that item.

The popularity of organic foods has even transcended into the meat showcases of butchers and gourmet meat shops and delicatessens.

Organic meats are now prominently on display and with fewer preservatives, they are even more sensitive to the effects of case lighting.

Gourmet food retail shoppers are more likely than ever to select meat based on its color and freshness. In fact, many studies have shown that color is the primary means by which consumers judge meat juiciness, tenderness and flavor.

Fresh Meat Displays

PROMOLUX fluorescent lights and LEDs designed for meat lighting, protect the bloom, the natural juices and flavor of assorted meat products ensuring shoppers are more satisfied with their purchase.

PROMOLUX True Color Definition Lamps and LEDs

Deli equipment display lightingPROMOLUX balanced spectrum lamps and LEDs emit lower levels of heat and ultraviolet radiation than regular grocery store fluorescent lamps, thus reducing the rate of meat decomposition. Compared to other fluorescent lighting, PROMOLUX lamps and LEDs emit 86% lower UV B radiation, a shorter wavelength that penetrates and causes heating, and 52% lower UV A radiation, a longer wavelength that tends to affect surfaces.

Promolux lamps have a balanced spectrumBecause PROMOLUX lamps and LEDs are designed for true color definition, they have a more balanced visible spectrum than other fluorescent lamps. The yellow and green wavelengths that are predominant in regular fluorescent lighting are the most damaging wavelengths in the visible spectrum. PROMOLUX lamps and LEDs emit a more balanced range of wavelengths, including more of the red and blue wavelengths and more moderate levels of the yellow and green wavelengths.

This balance ensures that beef maintains its cherry red bloom while its fat and marbling are displayed in their true colors, rather than appearing brownish with yellowed or pink fat which often is the case with regular meat display lighting.

VISUAL APPEAL OF FRESH MEAT IN SUPERMARKET MERCHANDISERS
Consumers judge the freshness of meat by its color, but many lighting sources distort true colors. <more...>


COLOR OF FRESH MEAT IN SUPERMARKET DISPLAY CASES
The color of fresh meat is determined by the pigment myoglobin, which undergoes various chemical reactions to form other pigments. These reactions are triggered by light, heat, and oxygen availability. <more...>


SPOILAGE OF FRESH MEAT IN COMMERCIAL SHOWCASES
The growth of bacteria leads to meat spoilage. Most display case lighting emits radiation which raises meat surface temperatures even in refrigerated display cases, leading to exponential bacterial growth.<more...>


MEAT REWRAPS IN GROCERY STORE MEAT CABINETS
Meat that doesn’t sell can be sold more cheaply by rewrapping it, such as grinding it, marinating it, or even cooking it, but this still represents a loss in terms of additional labor costs and realizing a smaller profit. <more...>


MODIFIED ATMOSPHERE PACKAGING (MAP) FOR RETAIL DISPLAYS OF FRESH MEAT
Modified atmosphere packaging controls the amount of oxygen surrounding the meat, but the transparent wrapping traps radiant heat from lighting which leads to dehydration and spoilage. <more...>


FRESH BEEF DISPLAYS IN SUPERMARKET MEAT DEPARTMENT SHOWCASES
The color of beef changes dramatically under supermarket fluorescent lighting from full bloom red to dull brown. Beef spoilage and rewraps cost the United States $1 billion per year and Canada $200 million per year. <more...>


FRESH POULTRY DISPLAYS IN GROCERY STORE MEAT MERCHANDISERS
Radiation from meat display case lighting leads to an increased rate of bacterial growth and decomposition in poultry displays. <more...>


FRESH PORK DISPLAYS IN SUPERMARKET MEAT DISPLAY CASES
Pork shelf life is limited more by discoloration than by spoilage. High surface temperatures accelerate discoloration and can lead to lipid oxidation of pork fats, causing the pork to become rancid. <more...>


PROCESSED AND CURED MEATS IN RETAIL MEAT SHOWCASES
Grinding meat and stirring in herbs exposes lean tissue and fat to light and oxygen, making the product susceptible to discoloration and rancidity. The color of cured meat is very unstable when exposed to ultraviolet light. <more...>
