In conjunction with its label supplier Korsini SAF, Superfos, a company of Berry Global, has received an award for Best Label Design at the 2019 In-Mould Decorating Association (IMDA) awards in the United States.

The winning label is made for Heinz for its Cream of Tomato Pot Soup and Vegetable Pot Soup sold in a 400ml SuperLock container that showcased the cutting-edge In-Mould Labelling (IML) technique from Superfos.

As well as its creative and vivid design, the Korsini SAF autoclave resistant oxygen barrier label combines with the SuperLock pot to allow post-filling sterilization up to 120°C for 80 minutes. Both the pot and the lid are injection moulded, with the IML pot providing oxygen barrier protection. The lid is decorated with a standard IML and the pots are sealed with aluminium foil for a long shelf-life even under ambient temperatures.  Until recently, these soup varieties in this size were sold in metal cans.

In addition, the SuperLock pot claims to have a user-friendly twist-off screw-on lid and the container is also suitable for microwaving, so that a tasty meal can be effortlessly heated within minutes. The pack is 100% recyclable which is clearly indicated by an on-pack recycling label.

Zbigniew Hryniewicz, sales director- CEE at Superfos said, “The Best Label Design Award recognizes the technical capabilities and properties of the IML solutions offered by Superfos in collaboration with Korsini SAF. We proudly share the honour.”

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.
