Avery Dennison is said to have achieved another market first with the launch of a new certified portfolio of vegan labels, which contain no animal-derived components. Additionally, every item in the portfolio was created without animal testing or the use of GMOs of animal origin. Because of this, the collection has received approval from EVE VEGAN, an independent organization created by Vegan France, which works to promote vegan alternatives in different industries, including food and medicine.

At the time of launch, there are six paper facestocks, three adhesives, and two liners in the collection, and they can be mixed and matched according to customer needs. Each item offers a similar level of performance to non-vegan alternatives in both converting and application. Based on the converter and end-user needs, there are plans to expand the range with new paper facestocks.Avery Dennison (AD)

“Veganism goes beyond diet,” says Luuk Zonneveld, product manager at Avery Dennison. “It’s a philosophy and way of life centered on avoiding animal exploitation for food, clothing, and everything else you can think of. Naturally, this extends into the world of packaging, and we’re excited to help brand owners take their dedication to be cruelty-free to the next level with these innovative labels developed by our R&D team.”

Suitable for the beauty, wine and spirits, and food and beverage sectors, the new labels also serve as a unique selling point for brands. Thanks to the certification, companies can let consumers know their entire purchase – packaging included – abides by their values.

“We’re very proud to have received Eve Vegan certification and consider it a powerful symbol that lets brand owners, and their customers, know we take our commitments seriously,” says Luuk.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
