Product authentication made easy
ORIGINS AUTHENTICATION SYSTEM
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.
