Packaging Verification Inspection
Barcode readers inspect items containing allergens to verify that packaging components match
Allergen management is playing an increasingly important role in the packaged foods industry. Manufacturers take great measures to avoid labeling mix-ups that, at best, damage brand reputation and at worst lead to expensive recalls and liability. Many manufacturers print and scan barcodes on food items containing allergens to ensure they are labeled accurately and advertise the correct contents.
For multi-part packaging, DataMan barcode readers verify that lids and containers match each other and the package’s contents. After assembly, a barcode scanning tunnel with multiple readers identifies both codes on a packaged item, regardless of orientation, to confirm they match each other and display the correct contents.
