BarTender® Software for Food & Beverage Labeling and Marking
The food production and food services industries face an increasingly complex set of regulations and standards for food labeling and traceability across the global food supply chain.
Having the right labeling system in place — one that is secure, proven and reliable; that integrates completely with existing systems and workflows to enable single source of truth data management; and that scales and adapts to evolving business practices — can be the difference between a successful labeling system that simplifies packaging and traceability and a complicated one that creates costs.
BarTender is the heart of your compliance labeling solution.
BarTender® barcode and label software is an integral component of the compliance, traceability and supply chain interoperability labeling strategies of food producers, processors, logistics providers and manufacturers around the world.
Named a top technology for the food industry, BarTender® helps simplify the unique business-to-business interoperability and communication requirements of the food supply chain, offering ease of deployment and legendary technical support, all backed by industry expertise — we understand the regulatory and supply chain pressures the food industry faces.
Control your labeling, don't let it control you.
Built to enable regulatory compliance and supply chain traceability, BarTender transforms your data into the labels, barcodes and RFID tags that drive your business.
We've done the work so you don't have to.

GS1? EPC? We do that.
BarTender includes built-in coding and business rules that help you create labels that comply with industry standards, create interoperability with your trading partners and enable supply chain traceability. Choose GID, GRAI, SGLN, SGTIN and SSCC or specify a custom format.
Change management made simple.
Businesses grow and change. New 3PL? New DC? New vendor? New WMS? New pricing? New processing facility? Deploy pricing, regulatory, data and format changes throughout your supply chain, in an instant, with BarTender's powerful Intelligent Templates™.
Putting the "smart" in "smart labels."
BarTender makes the design and coding of RFID as simple as creating a standard barcode. And because BarTender can pull RFID, barcode and human readable data from a common data source, and group associated labels in a single template, your label data accuracy and inventory visibility increases.
Can your software use your data?
The data in your labels can come from many places: ERP, WMS, production and pricing database files, clocks, weighing scales. BarTender's Intelligent Templates™ and Integration Builder platform make it easy to link your data — wherever it lives — to your label.
Set up serialization across your network, and then forget about it.
BarTender continually manages and monitors the serialization — unique, random or sequential — that drives your supply chain traceability and FSMA track-and-trace compliance. Increment at a single printer or at printers across your network.
Simple. And sophisticated.
With its Windows interface, BarTender enterprise label software is familiar, even from the first time you open it. It's intuitive — easy to learn, easy to use, and easy to train your workforce.
But don't be fooled by BarTender's simplicity.
BarTender is a powerful tool for even the most complex logistics and product labels. Manage track-and-trace. Add accurate GS1-compliant codes with a simple drag and drop. The standards are built-in.
