Trust starts with Traceability
Traceability shows transparency in the flow of goods and data in the modern supply chain. GS1 Standards make it possible to implement the requirements with Global Unique Identifiers combined with global semantics for batch & serial numbers and other movement data allowing traceability of products and locations down to batch or package level.

In the recent Strait Times article, Pasar & Iceberg lettuces were recalled from Fairprice and Sheng Shiong due to high levels of Fipronil in their products. Traceability with GS1 Standards enables companies to trace and recall the affected batch of consignments from the market ensuring consumer safety and quality assurance of products.

Food Labelling Practices to
Ensure Food Safety

Article courtesy of:


Serving great food is not the only recipe for success. A good food safety culture is also instrumental in building a strong foundation for F&B businesses in the retail food industry.

With the increase of people eating out, ordering delivery and takeaway, there is a greater need for food providers to improve food labeling to ensure consumer's safety.

In view of this need, SATO launched the next-generation IoT-enabled thermal printer FX3-LX. It enables effortless label printing for complex operations across a wide range of industries including Food and Retail. It is designed for use in kitchen/food preparation environments and its Application-Enabled Printing (AEP) platform allows it to be used as a PC-less, online or standalone printer.
