Our flexible manufacturing processes enables us to produce label materials tailored to drink brands’ unique requirements – contact us and let’s change the game together.
We are a reliable drinks label material manufacturer who can produce products to your exact standard – we can offer materials for a wide-variety of bottles, including curved and bottles with uneven surfaces. We provide you with flexibility to pick and mix your face materials, adhesives and liners so your drinks label construction meets your application and sustainability goals.
To maximise recyclability within the drinks industry, we have developed innovative wash-off adhesives as part of our PurityWash range. These adhesives allow labels to wash off of PET bottles, leaving bottles residue free, maximising the recyclability of both PET bottles and label materials. This allows drinks brands to improve their sustainability credentials, reducing their environmental footprint and maximising the recyclability of plastics. These adhesives can be used with a variety of our faces and liners, speak to our team to learn more.
As drink brands look to reduce their plastic usage, and with the introduction of Plastic Tax, we have worked hard with our new product development teams to develop an innovative solution which takes avoidable plastic out of packaging and allows brands to switch to recyclable materials to promote a circular economy. Discover EcoPack, a revolutionary one side coated heatseal and moisture barrier FSC® certified paper which provides a sustainable, translucent paper-based alternative to avoidable plastic packaging. With EcoPack you can benefit from fully recyclable paper packaging that is adaptable, efficient and attractive.
With consumers becoming more environmentally aware, drinks brands put a large focus on choosing sustainable label materials. We have a variety of FSC® certified and recycled papers available. We are also innovating and growing our sustainable materials to allow drinks brands to improve their sustainability credentials with a key focus on innovation and ‘reduce, reuse and recycle’.
We have years of experience manufacturing materials for the wine, spirits and beer industry. Our label materials provide excellent printability, tack and durability. Knowing how your labels will be applied also allows us to ensure the recommended label specifications will meet your bottling requirements, explore our AdaptVivant range which is tailored to the beers, wines and spirits industry.
