TruTag® microtags are made of high-purity, safe and edible silica
Markets: Food and Beverage
Food and beverage products remain in the top ten of all items counterfeited in the world today. This is alarming because, like medicines, these products are ingested and can subject consumers to injury or death while at the same time significantly harming the reputation of companies and their products alike. Additionally, profits made on these sales by criminal organizations erode the profitability of legitimate companies who have invested significant research and practice high-quality safety standards. For beer, wine, and spirits manufacturers, combatting fake products in worldwide markets continues to be a top priority.
TruTag microtags can help companies in the food and beverage markets by providing a customized technology solution. Our authentication solutions include specialized microtags that are manufactured of inert silica, also known as silicon dioxide (SiO2). This material is “generally recognized as safe” (GRAS) by the United States FDA and has been in wide use for many years in a range of food products. Our solutions can be used in or on food and beverage products in various application techniques.
