A Perth company has begun trials on secure labelling technology that uses a microchip to protect against counterfeit scams. The technology involves embedding labels with a small microchip that holds secure information about a product's history. The microchip in the label can then be read using a smartphone app, which could allow food or wine products to be tested for authenticity along the supply chain.
