RFID technology has led to better safety handling of raw materials and finished products in the food industry, which is also using the technology to speed up the processing of manufactured goods and materials, according to the October 2009 issue of the Journal of Food Science.
Scientists from North Carolina State University detail in the journal the numerous applications of RFID technology in the food industry:
"The challenges that face RFID technology are read range and accuracy in retail environments, nonuniform standards, cost, recycling issues and privacy and security concerns," says lead researcher K.P. Sandeep. "Another challenge is the differences in frequencies allocated for RFID applications because each country is setting their own standards for the new technology."
