Jetrix inks now being used by Displaypak for Nestlé food packaging
Priding itself on offering sustainable packaging and display solutions, Displaypak in Hull has recently started using Jetrix inks in its LXi8 LED-UV flatbed printer to produce packaging for Nestlé. Following extensive review and working closely with the Displaypak and Nestlé’s design agencies, the ink passed the strict stipulations to fulfil safety and sustainability requirements.
This builds on the work that Nestlé has been focused on where it originally established the first food packaging Institute of Packaging Sciences in 2019 –the aim of which is to bring functional, safe and environmentally friendly packaging solutions to market.
Andy Dearman, managing director at Displaypak, said: ‘We have had the Jetrix LXi8 for a while now, but being able to use it more extensively, particularly for food packaging, means that we can stretch the boundaries of what we use it for. This approval means we can use it for a multitude of our FMCG customers.’
This sentiment was reinforced by Ben Woodruff, head of UK Jetrix sales at InkTec Europe, ‘As our inks are self-developed by our research and development team based in South Korea, we know exactly what is in them. So, going through the process of providing the critical information and answering the myriad of questions involved was made simpler and easier. As a result, we knew they fulfilled the required food packaging criteria but it is even better to know they are being used to produce materials for a well known brand like Nestlé.’
