Saturday, 11 November, 2017, 08 : 00 AM [IST]
Taking a step further in its global commitment to product safety, Siegwerk, one of the leading suppliers of printing inks for packaging applications worldwide, has introduced a Transparency Label.

This is further evidence to this commitment, which is based on proactive transparency along the packaging value chain, and the manufacturing and marketing of safe inks.

This initiative is in line with the company’s goal of supporting customers in the manufacture of safe printed products.

Increasing awareness
Consumers are becoming increasingly critical of health-related aspects and personal well-being. This has been fostered by various packaging scandals in the past and present, specifically in terms of food safety.

Siegwerk has been aware of the need for safe printing inks for packaging applications from the beginning and has made ink safety one of its guiding principles.

The company, a global leader in providing product safety guidance, has an expert team exclusively dedicated to this.

Siegwerk’s product safety guidance includes global regulatory initiatives, brand owner requirements and safety and risk assessments targeting raw materials to end use applications.

This is not only reflected in the company’s portfolio of safe printing inks, but also in the launch and the roll-out of the Transparency Label.

Transparency Label
In order to demonstrate Siegwerk’s commitment to product safety, the proprietary Transparency Label was developed.

Transparency is applicable for all applications, whether food, food-alike (pharma and personal care) or non-food.

This includes continued Siegwerk guidance and support for customers on various levels, from individual advice on specific problems to broader trainings.

Above all, the label stands for a commitment to maximum transparency by Siegwerk.

It is based on the manufacture of safe inks according to Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) from thoroughly evaluated raw materials.

“With our Transparency Label, we are demonstrating our global responsibility regarding product safety as well as regulatory and brand owner requirements,” said Ashish Pradhan, chief executive officer, Siegwerk India.

“The label stands for our commitment to uncompromising proactive transparency, enabling our customers to print a safe and compliant product and making sure that we deliver what we promise,” he added.

Next to offering manufacturers of food packaging and labels a complete range of migration-optimised inks and varnishes for all printing processes, Siegwerk supports its customers with training courses on all matters of food safety and regulation. This is to ensure the safety of our customers’ products.

With a combination of best-in-class ink performance, high product safety and continuous support and guidance, the company helps its customers to meet their individual needs with cutting-edge solutions.
