Numbers and Lines

All packaging are adapted to the physical needs of their content, there after, all supplementary information is added from selling point of view (composition, weight, calories, date of fabrication, date limit, origin…) A résumé of this information can be found in the barcode.
The barcode is an optical machine readable representation of data. Data is often represented by a double series: one of numbers and a second of lines. Barcodes can be read by optical scanners. If the scanner fails to work, the numbers underneath can be entered.
