ECO RFID Food & Beverage Collection – Reducing food waste with data.

ECO RFID Food & Beverage Collection by Stora Enso consists of ECO RFID tags specially designed for tagging food and beverage items. Using the sustainable ECO RFID Tag Technology by Stora Enso, the collection is made for companies committed to environmental values.

 

Each year, 1.3 billion tons of food is wasted worldwide, according to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization. Yet, according to studies, RFID can reduce food waste by up to 20% by accurately aligning inventory with variable demand, improving processes, optimizing production, increasing visibility of expiry dates, and facilitating food donations.

 

RFID tag Collection for Food & Beverage tagging

ECO RFID Food & Beverage Collection by Stora Enso consists of four RFID tags designed for the most common packaging types in this category. The tags are also specifically designed to be used on items that are usually difficult to tag, such as packages with metal foil layers, cans, bottle caps, and microwave meals. They are a perfect fit for both traditional supply chain management and unmanned retail use cases. Customization is also available in order to meet the unique requirements of your company. ECO RFID tags come with a natural anti-tamper feature and they are recyclable in the paper recycling process.

 

Reducing food waste with real-time expiry date management

With RFID technology, retailers get access to real-time inventory data, which helps in optimizing operation and limiting food waste. To further help retailers in food waste reduction, selected ECO RFID Food & Beverage Collection tags have a unique expiry date feature. This makes it possible to encode expiry date information directly to tags that are used on fresh food packaging. When used together with Selfly Store by Stora Enso, it is possible to follow the expiry date of each individual item in real-time, and get notifications of soon-to-expire products. This helps retailers to react in advance with, for example, price discounts or special promotions.

 

Sustainable choice

ECO RFID Food & Beverage Collection is made with Stora Enso’s patented ECO RFID Tag technology  that allows the printing of an RFID label to a renewable paper, without plastic layers and harmful chemicals. This makes the collection a sustainable choice for companies that care about their ecological footprint. The tags are competitive with traditional inlay options in both performance and cost and they comply with industry standards and regulations.
