Radio-frequency identifiction (RFID) for food and beverage packaging applications

P. Harrop,     IDTechEx, UK

Abstract:

Radio-frequency identification (RFID) can help to tackle many problems in the food and beverage industries such as waste in the supply chain, empty shelves, theft, counterfeiting and recall of debased or dangerous product following a bioterrorism incident or outbreak of foodborne disease. It is currently used on or in only a tiny percentage of food or drink packages, but it may be extensively used before the end of the decade. This chapter explains RFID systems, their benefits, technical functions, and future in food and drink applications.
