Consistent year on year growth of the food industry means that packaged food requirements are steadily increasing across the world. Chief among these is ensuring that ‘best before’ dates, barcodes and traceability information are clearly and accurately printed onto all types of packaging. This is particularly relevant in the baking and snack (convenience food) industries, these are the most diverse food sub-sectors.
Codico, along with our technology partner, Domino Printing, have put together a number of learning tools (whitepaper, case study and video) to help our customers choose the right technology for each type of packaging within the bakery and snack food sectors.

Irwin’s Bakery achieves accurate and consistent coding with Domino’s TTO systems [Case Study]
Irwin’s Bakery is Northern Ireland’s most well-known bakery, with over a hundred years of producing high quality breads, cakes and biscuits in Portadown, County Armagh. With older coding systems creating a bottleneck on a very busy production line, Irwin’s made the decision to incorporate Domino’s V-Series technology, installing over twenty V230i Thermal Transfer Overprinting (TTO) units across the plant.
