rfid on food tagged by lot number would enable quicker reaction in cases of contamination. (i.e. e. coli)

It's hard for me to imagine that it makes economic sense to use rfid for relatively inexpensive, non serialized food products, as the example shows. That being said, it is much more useful for preventing theft for clothing and higher dollar items. Any idea what the cost is "per tag?"

Could this be a solution for stopping the counterfeit menace in electronic supply chain? By using smart packaging the buyer would have authentic information on the originality of the supplier

It could be. The printed electronics platform supports memory and logic and RF circuits and a sensor technology. In this food packaging application I am not sure the RF communications channel has been specificed but RFID might work.

Good value addition to the packaging materials, this will not only add to the accountability of the materials being handled, additionally it will help in keeping then healthy and nutritious.
