Fonterra have unveiled plans to invest NZ$555m to increase milk processing capacity in NZ with a new milk powder drier on North Island and three new factories to capitalize on future demand from Asia.

RFID technology in food traceability
Hi everybody,
Use of RFID chips on the label or packaging material of food helps to track the food in its supply or distribution chain. I read a message about incorporating RFID directly into food. I could not find any article that talks about this topic on direct inclusion of RFID chips in food. Does anyone have information related to this topic?
