US Aviation Chief Is Joining The Board of Smart Label Developer
The article on Scotland of Food and Drink Online explains that Douglas Cribbes, president and chief executive of Fort Worth-based Texas Aero Engine Services LLC is joining UWI Technology as a non-executive director.
The appointment is a huge progression for UWI Technology and will help them to gain the $1.1 million of new investment in order to launch the label overseas.
It was Pete Higgins who invented the smart label which can tell you how long certain foods have been opened and therefore if they are still safe to eat or not.
However, Cribbes has seen that the label has potential uses in several other sectors.
He said: “Even on paper it was obvious to me that UWI Label could have important uses in the aviation sector.”
Higgins said: “Its been a long hard slog to get here, but it looks like 2012 will be our breakthrough year.
“We are now at the most exciting stage with multiple investors interested, the product months away from mass production and an important patent pending.”
