Dairy Product Coding & Labeling

Anytime you’re working with food products, there are a multitude of guidelines that must be followed. This is true with dairy packaging and labeling.

There are some challenges within the world of dairy packaging.

  1. The environment in which labeling must be done includes condensation, washdown areas, temperature changes and sterilization stations.
  2. Production requirements can frequently change to accommodate different products and package materials.
  3. The high-speed production rates call for high performance equipment.

Coding, labeling and marking dairy products is demanding. With fast changing requirements, short shelf life, extreme need for cleanliness and traceability, there is a need for equipment that can tackle all types of substrates. You might find dairy products packaged in plastic bottles, cartons, sleeves, shrink sleeves, pots, tubs, foil wrap, and foil tops. Each of these substrates poses a unique coding and marking solution.Dairy Packaging
