New labels mean sweet news for confectionery firm

Label manufacturer Source Labels says it has used a new system to slash confectionery brand Blockhead’s label backing requirements in half.

Source Labels says its Utroque double-sided labelling system is the most significant breakthrough in label manufacture for half a century, reducing release liner consumption by 50 per cent and material weight by 40 per cent.

A revolution in eco-friendly printing, the technology uses both sides of the release liner, offering a simple yet effective solution that delivers huge benefits in terms of both environmental and cost reduction, says the firm.

“We have been absolutely amazed by the sheer scale of benefits we have experienced as a result of converting our labelling to Utroque,” says Miranda Best, operations manager at Blockhead. “Not only have we seen a significant cost and waste reduction, but also improvements in functionality.”

“The technology can be added to existing labelling lines, enabling hassle-free implementation,” adds Tim Lowe, Source Labels’ managing director.
