Batch Coding Content Requirements

Coffee and tea products, are commonly packaged in bags and pouches. For example, roasted coffee beans and ground coffee are stored in valve-sealed bags and tin-tie bags. And tea leaves are packed in small foil bags and vacuum-sealed bags.

According to food-related regulations, some necessary information expiration dates, and serial numbers, must be marked on these products, for ensuring consumer safety, providing product transparency, and facilitating informed purchasing decisions. 

Now, there are two main ways to code coffee and tea products: direct printing on the flexible packaging bag and affixing product labels.

Below is an example of a package of roast coffee date coded:

● Product Name: "Single Origin Ethiopian Roast Coffee"

● Net Weight: "340g"

● Ingredients: "100% Arabica Coffee Beans"

● Expiration Date or Best Before Date: "12/2024"

● Batch No: 12345AB

● Brewing Instructions: "Use 2 tablespoons per 6 oz of water and brew for 5 minutes."

● Origin: "Sourced from Sidamo, Ethiopia"

● Manufacturer Information: "Roasted by CoffeeCrafters, Portland, Oregon. Contact us at"
