VerifyMe will demonstrate its connected packaging solution in conjunction with Amcor at Pack Expo in Las Vegas from 11 and 13 September 2023.

VerifyMe provides brand owners time and temperature sensitive logistics, supply chain traceability, authentication, anti-counterfeiting, and data-rich brand enhancement services. Amcor is a global packaging company, which develops and produces flexible packaging, rigid containers, specialty cartons, closures and services for food, beverage, pharmaceutical, medical-device, home and personal-care. 

The evolution of connected packaging and GS1 driven 2D barcode migration means consumer-facing companies are increasingly adopting digital capabilities on packaging to protect their brand, facilitate traceability and engage with conscious and curious consumers. 

The company is working with Amcor to demonstrate that this digital transformation is possible without significant process change, using a ‘digital ready’ concept leveraging a unique identifier on every pack.

Don Schnabel, marketing director – Meat, Poultry and Seafood at Amcor says, “The beauty of connected packaging is that multiple objectives can be achieved through one unique code on each package, enabling a frictionless experience for consumers and ultimate traceability for processors.

“We are demonstrating the capability to print unique GS1 compliant QR codes on demand at Pack Expo, using our Moda Bag.  This on-demand making unit can print both fixed and variable graphics on site at the processor. The unit is wash-down ready and is built to replace a rack of premade bags on the packaging floor.  Visitors to Pack Expo can view a live demonstration of the Amcor Moda Bag at stand  SU07244,” Don Schnabel continued.

The VerifyMe solution integrates with the new GS1 Digital Link standard to provide traceability through the supply-chain to end consumers, while at the same time helping brands and producers to comply with traceability regulations such as the US FDA Food Traceability Rule. Consumers are increasingly curious about the provenance and attributes of the food they are consuming, and this technology provides a channel to share that information backed by data-driven evidence.

Adam Stedham, president and CEO of VerifyMe said “We are delighted that Amcor is demonstrating our connected packaging solution at Pack Expo in Las Vegas. VerifyMe acquired, the New Zealand based, Trust Codes Global to vertically integrate its technology stack, brand protection, and brand enhancement offerings into our Authentication Segment. We believe Trust Codes Global’s deep domain expertise and product development in machine learning and AI, and industry expertise in food, nutrition, beverage, and nutraceuticals, provides the capability to deliver better outcomes to customers facing counterfeit, brand connection and diversion issues.”

Incorporating the Trust Codes Global leading product cloud into VerifyMe’s Authentication services significantly elevates our traceability offering. As a product offering, our clients have access to data-driven brand protection and standards-based traceability out of the box. Trust Codes Global has a proven platform, with customers who are leading the way in traceability and GS1 2D barcode migration. We believe VerifyMe is well-positioned to lead North American and European customers along the journey of complying with new traceability requirements.
