The ability and means provided by anti counterfeit packaging technologies allow us to use our time better. To save time, make future decisions about your cat food delivery every two weeks or order new makeup online and deliver it right to your door.

Even though we were planning to move to contactless delivery by 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has compelled us to do so even more urgently to move towards anti-counterfeit packaging techniques. Counterfeiting is a real problem that will only worsen as technology advances.
Even though counterfeiting has always been a problem for brands, the prevalence of e-commerce means that customers are constantly exposed to it. Counterfeit goods continue to flood the market, despite governments around the world enforcing strict laws and penalties and encouraging brands to use anti-counterfeit packaging. Worldwide, counterfeit goods generate $650 billion annually, according to the World Customs Organization (WCO).
Counterfeiters can inflict severe harm and safety risks on everyone involved. To stay ahead of the counterfeit industry, makers integrate the following advanced technology into the packaging.
- Microchip-equipped radio frequency identification tags (RFIDs)
- Security Seals
- Security Ink and Printing
- Smart Labels & Holograms
- Mass Encoding
- Digital Encryption and also Serialization
With UniSecure, a solution provider division of Markem-Systech Image offers barcode and packaging authentication. An additional white paper from the business examines how attached packaging can help product safety, consumer engagement, and traceability.
