SGS and OLNICA are proud to announce the launch of a partnership that will help supply chain to authenticate goods.
SGS's global reach and OLNICA's innovative solutions are well-matched to promote the authentication of goods to ensure safety and quality within distribution and supply chain. This partnership is designed to bring innovative technology to a broad sector of consumer product companies and brands to curb counterfeiting and is supported by on-site audit, inspection, sample collection and testing services.

OLNICA supplies unique and innovative technological solutions, capable of protecting the property of companies and governments, their brands, their products, and the supply chains, for combating counterfeiting, fraud, misappropriation and theft. Molecular DNA, specific fluorophores, connected detectors, cloud, digital breadcrumb trails: OLNICA supplies all the authentication systems necessary, whether visible or invisible, from a simple inspection system through to unique-code taggants, which can be used for taking legal action against counterfeiters.

SGS's brand protection services provide an eco-system of solutions with a roster of trusted partners to help a company reach their goal of brand security. They develop tailor-made and confidential programs to help companies protect their brands.

Supported by inspectors all over the globe and an audit network covering 95 countries, SGS's brand protection services look at all distribution channels, both traditional retail and e-commerce, to help businesses protect their brands, foster loyalty among customers, manage supply chains and improve efficiency.

Franck Pandiani, SGS Global Head of Brand Protection Services, commented, "Consumers, today more than ever, are focused on buying authentic items to ensure the safety of the goods they are purchasing. SGS strives to bring such trust to the marketplace through both traditional tools and innovative solutions. This partnership complements SGS's existing suite of solutions by providing the latest technologies to deliver efficient and robust methods to help customers achieve these key goals with certainty."
