A wide range of our products are used in the food industry – from various types of labels, printed shrink sleeves and flexible packaging, through to printed laminate tubes. We offer functional and attractive packaging solutions for food as well as alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.
There are, of course, multiple functions to product packaging in the food industry, and packaging often plays a crucial role here. It informs the consumer about ingredients, it protects the product, it must meet statutory requirements and formalities – such as a given font size, and last but not least, it is the carrier of a visual message in the context of maximum sales promotion.
Our packaging meets the mandatory certifications and standards. We always consider the choice of label or other type of packaging based on the content and purpose of the specific product. For products in direct contact with food, we use special low-migration inks and materials.
In the food industry, blank labels or graphic labels are very often used, which are suitable wherever the emphasis is on attractive product design. Both types of labels are intended for imprinting information later at the customer's premises. This is most often done with a TTR printer. Flexible packaging and laminated tubes can similarly be used to good effect.
We also have a solution for the soft drinks segment, where we use shrink sleeve labels that can be applied to different types of bottles or containers. For the reusable bottle cycle, where labels are washed off industrially, we choose special wash-off labels.
For newly emerging products or start-ups, we offer the option of low-cost digital printing that can then be combined with other finishing methods. In this case, we most often print using the 4-colour CMYK space; nevertheless, for demanding customers we are able to combine up to 7 colours. We print with high quality and precision.
For larger volumes we use flexo printing, where we can handle up to 10 printing units, and printing with direct colours that are defined in the PANTONE template.
Our portfolio includes a variety of materials with different properties and functions. We can handle any packaging design. For customers who demand the appearance of luxury, we use textured materials and special films. When applying a film, it is necessary to define its function – this might be as protection against the ingress of oxygen, moisture, and other external factors.
We offer various types of materials, ranging from mono films to multi-layer packaging with aluminum, or in combination with paper. For customers who want to take the green path, we have materials with recycled content, industrially compostable materials, and other materials that make recycling easier. Thermal materials are used for foods with short shelf lives.
