The growth of e-commerce, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic, has created a new demand for advanced packaging design.
With supply chains becoming more complex, it's time to build a strong foundational framework that is well-monitored and secured.
Stora Enso's ECO Meal UHF RFID tag for the food and beverage industry has a printed paper antenna and can be applied to or built into microwaveable packaged foods without posing a fire or arcing hazard.
Thanks to RFID technology, farms can control production and inventories, factories can guarantee product authenticity and proper packaging disposal, and customers can thus know what they are consuming.
As food producers and retailers test the system for tracking goods through production, supply chains and stores, the company is partnering with Microsoft to provide AI features that can help users identify when products might expire, which planograms are most successful and how sales could be improved.
