Laser etching on fruit

An article introducing the idea in America

The technology was invented by Greg Drouillard, the director of research technology for laser development for Sunkist Growers Inc., in Sherman Oaks, Calif., according to the Packer, a trade publication for the packing industry. Time called it one of the best inventions of 2005
"It can print anything," Drouillard tells the Packer. "The criteria of what determines what you're printing are how fast the product is moving on the packing line and how big the product is. How much of the tomato do you want to cover with information?"

Narciso says their tests of the technology shows that it can print on just about any fruit and vegetable.

The comments on the website are also quite revealing .... US people don't seem t like this idea!
