Current methods are too slow and costly to efficiently test these wines for authenticity. A much more affordable solution would be widely adopted by a market concerned with protection from counterfeits. By using the EIM-IRMS® method, the amount of wine tested and tracked can be significantly increased to satisfy a growing need for verification of all wines. The burden ultimately lies with suppliers and distributors to protect consumers, and to hedge against market share erosion and reputation risk to which they could fall victim. Using the SG-ID® technology, consumers, producers, distributors and government agencies are able to combat counterfeit wines, get a better understanding of the market environment and trends, and verify authenticity of every bottle of wine.


Consumers


Consumers are the main driver and focus of SG-Isotech. Using our technology, we are able to educate and protect the consumer from potentially harmful or adulterated products. By implementing constant, more precise quality control, consumers will be the ultimate beneficiaries, knowing the product has been certified and having all the information regarding a specific bottle of wine available at their fingertips.
