New EU Wine Label Regulations applicable from December 8, 2023 prompt a new strategic partnership
Scantrust, a leading software provider for QR-code based compliance, traceability and anti-counterfeiting solutions, has announced a strategic partnership with Multi-Color Corporation (MCC), the global leader in label solutions for wine and spirits. The new strategic partnership is aimed at helping wine producers all over the world comply with the newest EU wine labeling regulations. Scantrust’s software and experience using QR codes on products is combined with MCC’s expertise in label production and global presence to deliver an e-label solution that is easy to use, painless to implement, and assists with compliance for wine producers.
The EU’s new wine labeling regulations require that all wine bottles sold in the EU market after December 8, 2023 provide specific product information about ingredients, allergens, and nutrition details. Scantrust and MCC leverage their respective expertise to provide a comprehensive solution to assist customers in meeting these requirements using QR codes on wine labels.
This collaboration will bring new features to help assist with regulatory compliance to MCC’s customers across the globe. MCC’s presence and capabilities are critical for Scantrust to produce high-quality, secure digital labels, maintaining the flexibility and reliability that Scantrust solutions are known for.
