New ‘on pack‘ security QR code improves authentication of disposable vapes | 29-03-2022 |
Geek Bar, a Chinese supplier of vaping products, has launched a range of new packaging to help combat counterfeit and non-compliant items. The new packaging places greater emphasis on an ‘on-pack’ security code. Retailers can check the authenticity of products by verifying the security code online.
The new security feature is a 14-digit serial number incorporated in a QR code, updating an earlier system based on a 12-number code hidden behind a scratch-off panel. The packs also now include a hologram and include a new top-integrated seal, which will allow consumers to open the Geek Bar using a tear brace. The company has also replaced the certification and environmental protection information to emphasize the recyclable nature of the product
