Brewing Up A Success Story with YellowBelly Beer & Codico

YellowBelly Beer opened its brewery doors in 2015 at their busy brewpub Simon Lambert & Sons in the heart of Wexford, Ireland. The brewery’s name pays homage to the nickname ‘YellowBelly’ bestowed upon the Wexford townsfolk while also being full of irony, in that YellowBelly Beer never fears to be progressive and innovative with their beer styles and ingredients. In 2017, YellowBelly have expanded into a new brewery, not far from their initial site, with lots more space to continue their quest to become one of the world’s leading breweries.

Celebrating #casecodingweek

Lets be honest, manufacturers, retailers and consumers alike, are all obsessed with primary packaging. The primary pack is like the oscar statue at the Academy Awards every year. We hear about the best consumer packaged goods in the trade press but they rarely mention the secondary packs. But what about the outer case or outer carton? The humble corrugated brown and white box? To say things have changed is an understatement. Branding has grown to become 360 degrees around the product; from product display bins, shelf ready packaging (SRP), convenience packs (with handles!), to fully printed boxes with graphics (craft beer anyone) and lots more innovations and exciting developments.

Domino Leads the Way for GMP Approved Inks

The term GMP is widely used but often has no specific requirements set out. Quality control of raw materials, traceability of materials and other manufacturing processes are usually included. But as a customer how do you know that the material you purchase from one supplier is made to the same standard as that purchased from another. ‘Good’ can be a relative word.

Brush Up on Your Barcode Grading Knowledge

The humble barcode is everywhere. The barcode is the vessel for traceability throughout the supply chain and is the key unique identifier in serialisation. Particularly with the FMD (Falsified Medical Directive) in the EU for prescription pharmaceuticals and UDI in Medical Devices for USA (FDA) & EU. These are calling for the use of 2D barcodes (or two dimensional barcodes) in the make up of labelling guidelines.

Coding Success in the Health & Beauty Sector

What factors matter the most to your production? Maintaining line output, fast changeover of packaging SKU’s and insuring product/batch traceability; these are just some of the main factors that come to mind.

They recognised the benefits of working with one supplier for their printer, conveyor and labelling systems.

5 Considerations for Print & Apply Labelling

The star of the show is the humble label. The label is a self contained background that contains printed information. When we pick up an item in the shop we are immediately drawn to the product label. Be it the brand logo, the model name, the ingredients, allergens advice, the expiry dates, the barcode for scanning at the till, the label contains all the information the buyer needs to be generally informed about what they are buying.

Can Traceability Actually Save You money?

Last Tuesday, we had the pleasure of attending the National Manufacturing & Conference at the Citywest Hotel. The event was a success judging by the full car park and the queues for the coffee vendors.

One of the headline sponsors at the event was GS1 Ireland. For those who don’t know GS1, they are a global non-for-profit organisation, with over 2 million organisations across the globe use GS1 Standards today, to identify, capture and share information about their products, services, locations and assets.
