Laser Coding Directly Onto Food

Laser Marking on Bread - CO2 Laser

Laser with that Baguette?

FDA approval of laser coding directly onto food has been around for a number of years. It offers secure food traceability, is relatively tamper-free, and does not contribute to decay of the product.

Using a laser, manufacturers can add clean, indelible codes directly onto food products such as produce and bread. Since lasers are compact and do not emit contaminants or deposit additives that can ruin food, they can be fully integrated into a manufacturing line. As an alternative to inkjet coding or print and apply labels, they require no consumables, are reliable and low cost.

The benefits of laser coding are:

  • High speed coding capability
  • Consistent quality codes, graphics, or text
  • Ability to print on very small areas
  • Laser can operate in most any environment
  • Laser can print in any orientation

Want to know more about laser coding technologies and how they work? Read our white paper entitled Laser Coding Technologies.

If you are looking to add laser coding to your production line, or would like to add laser technology to your existing coding capabilities, then give us a call toll free at 888-438-3242 Option#3. We can help you decide on the right technology for your coding needs.

  2. David Holliday says:

    Melissa, CO2 laser is approved (and presumably tested) by FDA for use directly on food products. It’s a low power laser that causes the surface of the food to change colour – it doesn’t add anything or change the properties of the food.
    No label or sticky adhesive involved – as much as I’m a label/barcode guy, I hate trying to peel labels off my apples!
