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.
