Reason why manufacturers to choose to code on labels

  1. Machines used to code on labels are much cheaper than the ones that code directly on products or the primary packaging.

  2. Coding on labels allows manufacturers to embed required information right where other information are provided such as the content of ingredients and nutritional value.

Disadvantage of Coding on Labels

  1. The Manufacture / Expiry dates, Price and the Lot numbers are legal information that are required by law in most countries including Sri Lanka. Having them printed on labels can cause trouble if the label removes off the packaging.

  2. Credibility; it is more professional to have the code printed directly on the product or the primary packaging this give a sense of credibility.
