End-use applications for labels


Food labels cover a vast range of consumer products. Hence, solutions need to be extremely flexible and – due to the sheer quantity that are needed – price effective. Strict food safety specifications must also be respected. The number one growing trend? The greater customization of labels that results in varying order quantities

Attractive print quality

In a hyper-competitive and highly regulated environment such as food, the ability to attract attention at the right price is vital. Yet the labels must also provide information and resist handling. With 1200 dpi, Xeikon’s solutions match and exceed offset quality levels.

Consistent food safety

Xeikon’s dry toner technology meets the most stringent requirements of the food market, including Nestlé guidelines and the Swiss and German ordinances. The dry toner is also completely odorless, keeping food at its optimal even when being consumed.

Broad substrate flexibility

Food labels are produced on many substrates from thermal, coated and uncoated paper, to synthetic substrates and even clear-on-clear materials. Xeikon’s unique solution uses dry toners, that provide the flexibility to print on the broadest range of substrate.
