On-product barcoding is truly tamper-proof  - discover natural traceability with BioTags™

Sustainability is top of mind for consumers, industry and governments alike. BioTags™ are a natural solution that utilize nature’s code to deliver unprecedented safety, scalability and ESG guarantees.

Commodity & premium products are at great risk of counterfeit - build trust along your supply chain with BioTags™

Traditional barcodes may work for consumer packaged goods, but they won’t provide reliable traceability for individual seeds, grains or ingredients - especially when products are mixed together. BioTags™ offer scalable, on-product traceability that can be relied on as products change hands throughout the supply chain.
