The foodstuffs industry is deemed a particularly sensitive one. Consumers highly value detailed ingredients, origin and nutritional value information on the foods they plan to eat. While the marking obligations for foods from mass production isn't an issue at all, the high demands to food marking may be rather difficult to meet for small producers and newly founded start-ups. Usually, such manufacturers mark their products with labels. This brings about a number of disadvantages, such as lack of flexibility and the risk of markings coming off.
The mobile REINER® handheld printers offer a simple and efficient solution for product marking to manufacturers of small batches in the food and beverage areas. Learn more about the special challenges of marking in this area below, and find out how REINER® can support you in reliably marking your products.

Fresh articles: How can small producers mark their products easily?
Though many small producers rely on labels for product markings on food packaging units, these are difficult to handle and inflexible in production. Labels of a certain type may run out at the worst moment, or new ones need to be printed first. The REINER® marking systems offer a more flexible solution. The mobile REINER® handheld inkjets print directly on your packaging, entirely dispensing with labels. The properties of the packaging material are irrelevant for this. The quick-drying ink adheres reliably to nearly any surface. The marking of food packaging, but also of any other products, turns into an easy and quick process once the serial number, manufacturer's information, use-by date and other data can be adjusted at any time.
Food marking: How does flexible marking for organic and farm shops work?
Once again, the issue with packing food and beverages is that the often-small sales quantities must be labelled individually by hand. The marking of glass containers poses a special challenge. Labels are tedious and barely efficient. Direct printing on the packing with REINER® handheld inkjet printers is a good option for health-food and farm shops. No matter the packaging material, the desired information and graphics are simply printed on, even if the containers are glass or plastic bottles. This makes permanent marking of food products easy and reliable.
Labelling very small quantities: Why are REINER® marking systems outstanding options for food start-ups?
Though product development often commences under very humble conditions, e.g. in the kitchen of a shared flat or in a garage, even the very first test specimen must be packed and marked as specified. REINER® marking technology is particularly suitable for small quantities. Packaging units can be marked quickly and easily without having to print separate labels. Start-ups particularly profit from the great flexibility of our high quality mobile inkjet printers. They facilitate implementation of new ideas even if they require a new marking on the packaging.
The REINER® handheld inkjet printers are outstanding devices for use in the food area:
- Soup and spice start-ups
- Organic coffee and tea start-ups
- Start-ups for meat and dairy product alternatives
- Healthy foods start-ups
- Start-ups for food deliveries to the home
Mandatory food marking information: Are the mobile REINER® handheld printers suitable for comprehensive food marking?
Some types of foods and beverages need to be marked with identification and special health marks as well. These EC marks for food from operations subject to licensing requirements reflect where a product was last processed. The Food Information Regulation (Lebensmittelinformationsverordnung) applicable in Germany (formerly the Food Marking Regulation (Lebensmittelkennzeichnungsverordnung)) also requires various further bits of information on food and beverage packaging, including the ingredient list, best-before date and quantity contained.
The REINER jetStamp® models are just perfect for CE-marking of foods, marking with the EC mark or other marks. The handheld printer apply simple and clean packaging marks, no matter the packaging material. Marking of bottles and other packaging materials becomes easy and time-saving, leaving you with more time to focus on your core business.
