Showcasing the Gourmet in Delicatessens

Proper lighting in a specialty deli or meat counter makes all the difference when it comes to displaying food, not to mention the cost savings from reduced food spoilage. Promolux low radiation lighting not only makes food displays more appealing, but it greatly inhibits the deterioration of meats, deli salads and shaved meats and cheeses, farm fresh vegetables, and dairy products. This has an enormous positive impact on a store's bottom line; less shrinkage means lower overhead costs and more profit.


Proper Lighting Attracts Customers

One of the biggest oversights when managing a delicatessen or specialty foods store is how improper lighting affects fresh food items in the display. Regular fluorescent lighting actually diminishes a food's true color. When it comes to merchandising and shopper appeal, better coloring which is organic naturally appeals to shoppers.  A loss of color does little to comfort and cement the  impression of fresher food in the customer's mind.

All too often deli staff work hard on the arrangement and merchandising of products in order to showcase their items to their customers, but poor lighting detracts from the display and does little to showcase the vibrancy and depth of color.

Promolux balanced spectrum low radiation lighting is a specialty light designed for merchandising fresh food displays.  It showcases the product's natural colors and at the same time protects foods from unwanted heat and certain spectrum wavelengths that are damaging to foods by using premium quality phosphors to deliver the best coloring and light. Promolux lighting is most preferred by shoppers as it showcases a foods color and freshness naturally, without any distortion or enhancement that becomes obvious once an item is removed from the case.  When viewing a display case, shoppers only see fresh colorful product that has retained its natural moisture, flavor and nutritional integrity. 

Keeps Deli Products Fresh

Ordinary lighting includes a multitude of wavelengths that can oxidize foods quickly. Perishable deli meats, cheeses and salads actually lose a substantial part of their appeal when overexposed to normal light.

In addition, improper light sources cause rapid drying of meats and certain cheeses, resulting in faded colors of roast beef, ham and turkey meats and accelerated hardening and discoloring of specialty cheeses. For a business owner, when shaved and cured deli meats dry out and discolor quite quickly, along with the accelerated spoiling of the creams and sauces in deli salads, it eats away at the profitability of the operation.

Much like a local farmers market and produce stand, a delicatessens profit or loss is affected to a huge degree by the amount of food that must be thrown away. Promolux balanced spectrum low radiation lights extend the shelf life of perishable items and allows deli products to keep their moisture content for a longer period while inhibiting spoilage and bacterial growth in sliced meats.


Custom Designed To Showcase Foods
