About Vitsab International AB

Vitsab makes it easy to monitor your refrigerated products’ time/temperature relationship from production thru their final destination, no matter where they are shipped globally. Vitsab designs and builds simple to use visual product freshness/safety customizable labels called Smart TTIs (Time Temperature Indicators).
They care about the products their customers’ source and distribute around the world; from Yellow Tail Tuna caught off the Coast of Kyushu Island in Japan to the pilot’s meal served onboard an early morning flight to London. Vitsab’s product line services a diverse portfolio of industries. A partial list includes seafood, produce, airline catering, medical, and even fresh cut flowers.
Founded in the 1970s, Vitsab’s extensive history started with the initial development of their innovative technology by a small group of resourceful and committed visionaries. Today they have a network of scientists and other industry professionals, allowing their visual indictor technology to be used by passionate people just like you.
Vitsab ensures their products work for your application, whether chilled soup with a shelf life of 21 days, packed seafood that is air freighted to other countries, or flight meals loaded on an aircraft for service on the other side of the world. Quality, ease of use, and cost effectiveness are at the core of what they do.

Vitsab’s products are used by companies of all sizes and people with varied backgrounds.
The people who use their products may work for large corporations, work in teams or specific departments, or they may work alone and be sole traders; it doesn’t matter. From their experience, Vitsab knows people have different corporate functions and different individual needs. What’s important to Vitsab is ensuring their products work for each person – fulfilling individual needs. Their products allow company HACCP (food safety) managers and Government Inspectors alike, feel at ease.
