Security seals for food industry

Sealing food and beverage products to avoid and spot tampering

Consumable products often go through a process from raw materials to finished product. At each step, a food producer must ensure the safety of ingredients and products. Food must be processed, transported and stored safely. During transport and storage food must be sealed in order to detect unwanted tampering that might compromise food safety. Hoefon’s security labels are perfect for this purpose. A sealed product cannot be opened without leaving clearly visible evidence of tampering.

Securing and tracing food transport

Food and beverages are among the most frequently stolen commodities of cargo theft. The ease of reselling these products make them an interesting target for criminals. Hoefon Security Seals offer various types of high security seals that add a layer of security to your transport. These ISO 17712:2013 certified and CTPAT compliant seals cannot be removed by hand. They also cannot be tampered without leaving visible evidence. Plastic materials in our seals comply with international legislation for food safety set out in Regulation (EC) 10/2011 and Regulation (EC) No 1935/2004.

To detect possible contamination we are able to process metal additives in our plastic security seals. If a seal is (partly) broken, possible contamination can be detected by a metal scanner.

Security seals also offer the opportunity to track and trace transports. We are able to print security seals with a unique number, barcode, QR code, company logo and custom texts such as brand name.

Food and beverages often need to be restored within a certain temperature and humidity range. We offer various data loggers to monitor goods’ temperature and humidity during transports and storage. Hoefon Security Seals also supplies tilt indicators that check for undesired tilting of objects.

This offers the framework for tracking of location as well as tracking for temperature and impacts.
