Food&beverage labelling plays a vital role in the FMCG industry, enabling consumers to make purchasing decisions about what they eat. As food safety standards are rigorous, so are label requirements. To provide consumers with the highest level of protection from harmful substances, labels are required to be food safe.
The choice of labels is determined by the properties required by different packaging materials. Heat, humidity, freezing, chilling – the product environment directly affects the performance of the label. Right from the start, we identify needs and design labels in accordance with the conditions expected throughout the product’s life cycle. Handling each inquiry individually, our food and beverage labelling experts will find a solution that meets both brand vision and safety standards.
A label offers more than decorative value – it performs an important function in a product’s life cycle, not only enhancing its visual presentation, but also protecting it during transportation and storage. To ensure that the label does its intended job well, the materials and adhesives must be suitable for the external conditions. We provide labels with a range of properties that offer resistance to moisture, greasy substrates or extreme conditions.
Above all, our labels bring you a safe solution. Certified to the BRC, the international standard for food safety, we ensure that our products have successfully completed specialized tests. In addition, we operate in compliance with current global food safety standards, including EU Regulation 2023/2006 on Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and Good Hygiene Practice (GHP).
With the flexographic technology we use, migration of harmful substances can be kept to a minimum. We use safe Bisphenol A-free UV inks that meet food contact safety standards to produce food labels. The inks have been designed to meet such requirements as performance, resistance to discoloration and reliable adhesion to substrates, including flexible packaging made of plastic.
Frozen food is an important grocery category that simultaneously requires secured labelling with superior label adhesion capabilities, often applied in difficult conditions. Dealing with icy or damp surfaces, we choose an adhesive with the proper properties and use low-migration labels that can be applied in temperatures as low as -25 degrees Celsius and adhere in temperatures as low as -60 degrees Celsius.
By opting for flexible packaging, you choose convenience, efficiency and cost-effectiveness in transportation. What’s more, they do an excellent job of preserving freshness and protecting the products inside. In order to take care of the environment, we use a polypropylene and polyethylene standard label, allowing packaging made of flexible materials to remain homogeneous during the recycling process.
Logistics labels in the food industry are crucial as part of the supply chain and warehousing. Our GS1 tracking labels are a type of logistics label that is frequently indispensable in cooperation with major retail groups, allowing logistics units to be labelled according to the GS1 system. Due to the code’s greater space they can contain more information about a product than standard EAN code labels.
Such products as flour, groats, rice, superfoods, sugar or spices are often used repeatedly by consumers. Therefore, safe closing, opening and resealing is essential! Our open-close prevents spills and dries out food that retains its freshness during the entire usage process.
An unconventional container shape and an attention-grabbing label are a pivotal factor in differentiating a product from the competition in the beverage industry. Nevertheless, the industry is currently being challenged to embrace sustainable packaging solutions. Following the idea of 'saute labelling’, we introduce more sustainable labelling solutions, including wash-offs for PET packaging that allow the label to be detached during the washing process or seamlessly remove the label from glass bottles during the crushing and melting process. It is possible to produce labels resistant to low temperatures, humidity or water. We produce scratch-resistant labels intended both for beer and soft drinks, and labels for PET bottles and uneven glass bottles.
When it comes to food products, freshness significantly affects consumer choice. Thanks to our label banderoles, you will expand your marketing opportunities, but most importantly you can enhance product exposure while making it easier for the consumer to judge the freshness of vegetables, fruits, meat, cured meats, fish or ready meals. They are an excellent add-on with various types of packaging, including vacuum packs and trays.
A CONSCIOUS CHOICE
The magic behind our labels comes down to three simple ingredients: design, aesthetics and creativity. Adding visual attractiveness to your beverage is easy with the right choice of materials. Labels that use high-quality materials and inks and strike a balance between colours, textures and refinements will set your products apart from the competition.
Consumers support brands that espouse their values or offer high-quality products and services. Whether you produce organic, GMO-free or gluten-free products, the first thing that catches the eye is the design of your label, which can prove to be a powerful business development tool.
While proper design doesn’t just beautify – using resources wisely to create labels that are economical and aesthetically pleasing, it can also make your products more sustainable. It can eliminate waste throughout the production process and make packaging easier to be recycled.
