Product authentication made easy


The Origins product authentication system allows consumers to access product and provenance information specific to each batch. This information can be accessed through the embedded NFC tag or GS1 compliant 2D datamatrix code on the product’s label. Each code and tag is individually registered to the manufacturer and is part of a multi-tier authentication and anti-counterfeiting system.

Step 1. Smart device requirements

NFC Method

If you have an NFC enabled phone, ensure this functionality is switched on. To do this, access your phones settings and go to connection settings where wifi and Bluetooth functions are stored and switch the NFC function on. For a full list of NFC enabled phones, click here

Barcode Method

If your phone is not NFC enabled such as iPhones, you will need to download a barcode reader. We recommend you download the free app “I-nigma” which is available free from Google Play and the Apple App store.

The release iOS 11 will allow iPhone 7 and later model iPhones NFC tag reading functionality

Step 2. Scanning the product

If your device has NFC, simply unlock it and hold your device against the jar as stated on the label.

Barcode Method

If you are using the barcode reader, scan the square code and open your browser if prompted. This will open a web page holding information on that particular product.

Please Note

  • You must have wifi or mobile internet access to utilize this functionality.
  • The code is NOT a QR code so you must have a reader that is capable of reading barcodes.
