Luxeon Stylist Series with FreshFocus Technology™ for Meat and Fish

Lumileds today introduced FreshFocus Technology for red meat, marbled meat and fish, LEDs used to show food items in their most appetizing light. FreshFocus Technology is part of the Luxeon Stylist Series, Lumileds transformative line of LEDs designed to provide the perfect lighting environment for fashion retail, fresh food and restaurants.

Before a grocery item makes it from the market to the table, it must pass the shopper’s quality inspection.  FreshFocus Technology accentuate the natural colors of fish and meat items by identifying the ultimate color point to bring out the characteristics of these foods. For instance, LEDs with a cool daylight tone of 6500K on the black body curve best accentuate the natural colors in fresh fish. For red beef, a below blackbody color point at an ultrawarm, 2200K color temperature makes the reds appear rich and vibrant. Marbled meats appear best when lit with LEDs at a below blackbody 3500K color temperature. With below blackbody color points, a higher color gamut enables more fully saturated color depiction.

“Supermarkets are always seeking a competitive edge, whether that is through the breadth of their product lines or the level of customer service they provide. Our FreshFocus Technology gives them one more way to differentiate their fresh food areas by really showcasing the visual attractiveness and colors of their items, which leads to greater sales,” explained Luis Aceña, Senior Manager, Stylist Series at Lumileds. Aceña added that markets throw away unsold or expired meats, which decreases revenues by 4% on average. By implementing LED lighting, which does not emit heat or UV light, such food waste is minimized. “The improved lighting with FreshFocus Technology has been shown to increase sales and provide a return on investment in about a year, which is quite impressive for energy efficient lighting,” he said.

Part of the Luxeon Stylist Series, FreshFocus Technology can be incorporated into omnidirectional, spotlight and downlight and built-to-spec lighting solutions. FreshFocus Technology for red meat and fish are available in Luxeon CoB 1208 and 1211 arrays, which produce 2,000 and 2,800 lumens when driven at 900 mA and 1200 mA, respectively. FreshFocus Technology for marbled meat is available in the Luxeon 3014 LED, to be used in linear luminaires such as T5 and T8 equivalent lamps. Luxeon CoB arrays with FreshFocus Technology for marbled meat will also be available in the coming weeks. Lighting designers can also deploy the Matrix Platform using Luxeon 3014 or other Luxeon LEDs with FreshFocus Technology to configure linear luminaires or troffer replacements with rapid time to market.
