Why is CRI 90 better for Food Processing ?
If I can show you a way to improve your workplace lighting environment by 2-5% how much is that worth to a business? • 2-5% less accidents • 2-5% less sickness and time off. • 2-5% improvement in workplace attitudes, focus and concentration.
You can do all of this with a better lighting source, CRI 90 or greater. LED Lights are not all the same, some come with a Color Retention index of 80 or less.
The apparently rendered colors with CRI 80 on the left are not as good as those with CRI 90 on the right. When the CRI of an LED fixture exceeds 90, it is classified as a high CRI LED. There have been numerous studies done on this topic.
