Code One Program

We all know date coders and labellers are necessary to get the product out of the door and on to your customers' shelves.

Use-by and best before dates go onto primary/consumer products. These then get packaged into shipper cartons which need barcode print and apply labels and some human-readable data at times. Then finally they are palletized, stretch wrapped and a pallet label is applied.

Coders and labellers are found on the packaging line at many different points. These are typically robust and reliable, but like any equipment do need regular maintenance and consumables like inks, solvents, labels, ribbons etc to keep running. They also sometimes break down or perform out of specifications because of maintenance issues, setting issues, product changes etc.

If they do not work as needed, un-coded product gets backed up.

And this is a problem.

We think it should be easier to manage the process of placing codes on products. Ultimately you just want a reliable and simple product coding and traceability solution, right? You don’t want to waste time maintaining it, making sure the consumables and spare parts are available.

So why worry about buying a printer, then consumables, then spare parts and then maintenance?


That’s why Foodmach have launched the Code One program.


We take care of all the details for one fixed and low monthly charge which covers everything you’ll ever need to place codes on products; the printer, spare parts, consumables and technical support, it’s all included.

And if your needs change, so does the program. Now you can focus on the business of making your product and getting it out of the door.
