Covectra Issues Serialization System for Infant Formula Protection

Covectra, a provider of technology for product serialization, authentication and tracking and tracing, has launched a new system for protecting infant formula from counterfeiting.

The offering features a serialized unique barcode (QR, 2D or 1D) applied to the bottom of the can and all levels of packaging, including cases and pallets, so that units can be tracked throughout the supply chain. Components include an AuthentiTrack database for generating and managing all serial numbers, a packaging line serialization system to print and verify barcodes on each level of packaging, a downstream supply-chain traceability system, and secure authentication features that can be placed on various parts of the can. The methodology can be accessed using a smartphone barcode scan app available from Covectra.
