Coding

Before a piece of food is ready to leave the factory floor, businesses must have some method for tracking it. Manufacturers use date code printers to attach vital tracking and informational numbers to the packaging.

Using these codes, manufacturers can trace products to their source in the event of a recall, articulate to retail stores when the food has spoiled, and adhere to the regulations set by the Food and Drug Administration.
