How to Write an SOP for a Food Sandwich Label
A sandwich will typically need to be refrigerated for safe storage. (Jupiterimages/Brand X Pictures/Getty Images)

An SOP label, or "standard operating procedure," displays for the consumer the process the food went through prior to packaging and the date on which each step of the processing occurred. The label will also convey to the consumer how soon the sandwich should be eaten before it begins to spoil and the safest way to store the food until it is consumed. Grocery stores, delis and convenience stores often have premade sandwiches for sale, which are ideal for a quick lunch break. The labels on the sandwiches work to ensure consumers that the sandwiches are fresh and safe to eat.

    Mark on the label the day the sandwich was cooked or prepared. Indicate the day, month and year.

    Indicate on the label, if applicable, the date on which the sandwich, or the sandwich contents, was frozen. For example, a meatball sandwich may use meatballs that were baked and frozen. This should be indicated on the packaging label.

  4. 4

    Indicate on the label the proper storage temperature and/or method for storing. For example, "Keep refrigerated."

  5. 5

    Write on the label the date at which the sandwich can still be safely consumed.
