Designing and printing food packaging and labels with peace of mind – the role of inks and coatings

Why is food packaging so important?

First and foremost, the global population has surpassed 8 billion people. In the context of one-third of the world’s food production going to waste, we sadly have an estimated 2 billion people facing challenges in obtaining sufficient food and clean water, and over 800 million suffering from acute hunger. Effective food packaging materials are key in securing access to food for millions and play a vital role in safeguarding the condition of food, effectively mitigating food waste.

When developing food packaging, three fundamental roles therefore need to be considered. How will the pack effectively protect, preserve and present the foods it is designed for?

Exploring the rise of LED-based systems in printing - NEW Whitepaper

The global print and packaging industry is known for being visionary and possessing an innate ability to adapt and change. The sector must respond to changing consumer needs and market conditions. Over the last decade, this has meant an ever-sharper focus on sustainability and reducing the environmental impact of business - a core component of commercial success that no business can afford to ignore. One of the most significant innovations in the printing industry can be found in curing methods, with LED (Light-Emitting Diode) curing slowly emerging as a superior alternative to traditional UV (Ultraviolet) curing - now outperforming it in many respects. Both mercury lamps and LED lamps are used in curing systems for UV inks. However, they operate at different wavelengths. Mercury lamps produce UV light in a broad spectrum, while LED lamps emit UV light at specific wavelengths.
