Food labelling is the most diverse of all label end-uses, ranging from product tracking and marking sell-by dates to promotion.
It’s imperative that labels in the food industry retain their adhesive properties when:
- applied to cold and moist surfaces
- subsequently placed in deep freeze storage
- in contact with fat and oil.
