Hazlewood Chilled Meals has extended its use of Claricom Package Coding Management Systems to provide 100% barcode inspection of sleeved products.

The company’s site in Warrington manufactures ready meals for Tesco. Claricom was approached in 2000, initially on a trial basis, to provide network control of Hazlewood’s ink jet coding. Following the success of the trials, Claricom installed a PCMS in Summer 2000 across all lines at Warrington, allowing centralised network control of on-pack coding, necessary for printing both on to the sleeve and on to the film lid with contents and traceability data.
