Pharmacode or pharmaceutical binary code is a barcode standard used in the pharmaceutical industry as a packing control system, it is readable despite printing errors and can be printed in multiple colours, which are used to protect pharmaceutical companies from legal liability and is a must for Pharmaceutical traceability. It would allow you to see the origin and other information about the drugs, as well as tracking forward to see the route of the product up until the sale. This would be the core of any form of Pharma track and trace system.
Traceability has become a ‘buzz word’ with regard to food, particularly following a number of food safety incidents during which traceability systems have been shown to be weak or absent and hence slow or unable to assure consumers of food safety. Food crises in the past, such as the Listeriosis outbreak in 2018 have resulted in the consumer calling for greater visibility and precision in the global food supply chain.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is poised to have a major impact on the food supply chain – all the way from the farm to the individual buying food from a retail outlet.
Food fraud is a $50 billion annual industry, according to Michigan State University's Food Fraud Initiative— and you're probably eating some of the evidence.
