“Each year, the IQ Advisory Board, comprised of winemakers and winery owners, and the Wine Business Monthly editorial team hand-select today’s most innovative products they feel have the potential to significantly shape the future of the wine industry. Anti-counterfeiting technology is essential to maintaining authenticity of the world’s leading ultra-premium wine brands,” said Eric Jorgensen, publisher of Wine Business Monthly, founder of the Innovation + Quality conference.
As global demand for quality wines rises and the risk of counterfeits, diversion and refilling increases, wine lovers and growers seek reassurance about product authenticity and origin. SICPA’s multilayered security solutions help fight counterfeiting and fraud through attractive design elements like vibrant color changing inks and polarized light effects that also make a wine bottle stand out on the shelf, enticing consumers to pick it up and engage with it.
SICPA’s comprehensive solutions seamlessly integrate unique security features into capsule, label and seal designs without the need for special equipment or modification of production processes. From overt security features that allow authentication with the naked eye to covert features that require the use of hand-held proprietary devices or smartphones, SICPA can customize a solution.
