As Beijing reappears local cases of the new coronavirus, Li Lanjuan, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering and a member of the high-level expert group of the National Health Commission, said: We must strengthen food traceability.
The Beijing Market Supervision Bureau launched a major food safety inspection to ensure that the source of livestock and poultry products entering the market can be traced.
So, how to make good use of RFID and digital packaging to solve the problem of “food traceability”!
RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology, also known as radio frequency identification, is a communication technology that can identify specific targets and read and write related data through radio signals without the need to establish mechanical or optical contact between the identification system and specific targets.
RFID can give each item a unique “electronic ID card” (non-copy able, non-tamper able), and can realize the value of anti-counterfeiting, traceability, and anti-smuggling of goods. Label map by using RFID technology, tracking and tracing can be easily achieved in the entire supply chain, ensuring complete end-to-end transparency. Provide consumers with additional product information and interact.
After the integration of the back-end big data platform, the big data of the supply chain and the anti-counterfeiting traceability big data are finally formed. Such as: Milk powder traceability the frequent occurrence of milk powder safety incidents has seriously affected consumer confidence. By assigning an ID card to each milk powder product, consumers can track each piece of milk powder from the source to the entire link, which is convenient for consumers to understand the details of the milk powder and improve consumers’ confidence in product quality. With the help of the “one can, one code” method of milk powder, the traceability of the entire chain of milk powder is effectively guaranteed, and a reliable guarantee is provided for the safety of milk powder.
RFID electronic label technology helps consumers to choose safe and reliable milk powder brands from many milk powder brands, and they are more assured of their babies’ milk products!
Meat quality safety traceability The “Administrative Measures for Animal Immunization Labeling” of the Ministry of Agriculture stipulates that pigs, cattle and sheep must wear immunization ear tags and establish an immunization file management system.
Ear tag diagram Ear tags (RFID electronic tags) can record the key information of individuals, including the time of birth, feeding status, vaccination status, what diseases they have had, what medicines have been used, and the time when they were released. Once an epidemic breaks out, the food safety management system can quickly find the product sales location, responsible person and product origin information, not only can find the ultimate consumer of each food according to the food safety traceability system, but also find the circulation or production process in the process where problems occur, take corresponding measures.

For some products, it is not advisable to directly attach RFID tags. At this time, RFID tags can be attached to the outer packaging of the product to form digital packaging (smart packaging). The RFID smart packaging box has a built-in anti-transfer electronic tag. Just use a mobile phone with NFC function to approach the packaging box to read the label information, so as to obtain product-related information in the packaging box, such as product details, anti-counterfeiting traceability information, etc.
Built-in electronic label with TD detection function, opening the box will destroy the detection line of the label, and when reading the label information, it will remind the box that the box has been opened. In addition, for the convenience of mobile phone users without NFC function, the packaging box is printed with a QR code consistent with the information content of the electronic label. Users can also use the scan function of their mobile phones to inquire about product-related information.
RFID smart packaging boxes are widely used in the outer packaging of high-end commodities, such as bird’s nest, cordites, tea, and brand wine, imported food… etc. Its built-in electronic label, as an entrance to the Internet, not only realizes anti-counterfeiting traceability, but also realizes good interaction between brands and consumers. This is not only conducive to the improvement of brand value, but also to the improvement of consumer trust and stickiness.
