Few industries are as highly regulated as food production and packaging. As is the case with fields like pharmaceutical development and chemical manufacturing, those in the food industry have to consider many laws, standards, and regulations to even get their products in stores. From state-level meat and dairy coding regulations to federal labeling standards like Fair Packaging and Labeling Act (FPLA), food manufacturers and co-packers often have to comply with a multitude of labeling laws in order to avoid expensive fines and product recalls.
Depending on product specifics, food companies are frequently tasked with labeling their products with:
- Lot codes
- Serial numbers
- Expiration dates
- Barcodes/data matrices
