From knock-off fashion accessories to fake mobile phones, automotive parts and pharmaceuticals, counterfeiters manufacture and sell inferior goods using another company’s trademark, brand name, logo or appearance. Benefiting from rapid developments in technology, these organizations use sophisticated means to duplicate items, making it quite difficult for customers to identify the true source of the products they purchase.

Counterfeiting is a serious crime punishable globally by fines that may run into millions of dollars and imprisonment of up to 20 years. Despite this, the counterfeit industry continues to cost the world economy hundreds of billions of dollars each year.

One of the biggest threats faced by companies is the problem of duplication. Counterfeiting or duplication can take place at any stage of the supply chain. Since the supply chain encompasses different stages, therefore, it is difficult to individually monitor each of them. Moreover, it is manually not feasible to examine loopholes or any errors in the supply chain.

Of late, different kinds of technologies are being used to secure and monitor supply chains. Particularly IT technology in amalgamation with holographic technology is being used by companies worldwide. A good example is the use of barcode or QR code which not just digitally authenticates the products but also links it with different IT-enabled technologies like track and trace, supply chain management, reward management, inventory management, marketing campaigns and other functionalities.

Digital authentication through a QR code and barcode take place on the individual product, pack, case and pallet level. Variable and unique QR codes are difficult to copy and provide security on each level of the supply chain. Holostik is a pioneer of anti-counterfeiting solutions and provides a range of holographic and digital authentication solutions for securing supply chains. Our security holograms enabled with digital authentication solutions helps in providing a multi-layered security approach to the product and the company’s supply chain.

Packaging plays an important role in the product and the company. Some of the best products in the world have the most remarkable packaging. From holographic corrugated boxes to glittering pouches, beautiful wrappers to eye-catching shrink sleeves the list seems endless.

Market experts consider packaging as the first communicator of the company. Branding gurus have always laid emphasis on making the product packaging alluring. The idea behind it is to increase the product’s visibility on the market shelves.

Creative taglines, the attractive pallet of colors, shape, size, and convenience of packaging are some of the most important points before creating a packaging solution. However, this is just a small part of the overall picture and packaging has many other important roles in product supply, sales and company growth.

Besides branding and marketing the product, an ideal packaging must also secure it from counterfeiting, tampering or diversion in the supply chain. No wonder, the element of security is vital for making the packaging effective.

Here are 4 points which define the ‘element of security’ in product packaging.

  1. Even if a product is sturdy, it doesn’t mean that it cannot suffer damage in the supply chain. All kinds of products require safe and secure packaging for protecting them against any kind of harm.
  2. Secure packaging is also important for keeping the product temperature proof especially if it is a consumable good. Products are transported through long distances which takes days, in such scenario a durable and temperature proof packaging is of utmost importance.
  3. Holographic packaging like security labels, anti-tampering labels, security holograms plays an important role in protecting the product from counterfeiting and tampering.
  4. Nowadays barcodes and QR codes are printed on the packaging of the products. These digital codes, not just hep in authenticating the product but also help in tracking and tracing the product in the supply chain.

One of the biggest challenges for companies today is the security of their supply chain. Any kind of lapses in a supply chain can lead to theft, counterfeiting, adulteration and other problems which can severely impact the performance of an organisation.

When it comes to ensuring the security of the brand most organisations believe that it is enough to secure the product against any kind of duplication and tampering. However, the actual scenario is quite different as a product is susceptible to different problems at different stages of the supply chain.
