Keeping a lid on quark
First Milk’s recently released new product, Lake District Dairy Co. Quark, is available in three flavours: original, lemon and vanilla. High in protein and low in salt and sugar, quark is a naturally fat-free dairy ingredient that is suitable for cooking, baking and mixing.
Chadwicks produced high-quality pre-cut lids for First Milk’s quark products, working closely with the company to develop a colour-matched lid that is consistent with the existing pot labelling, which is printed using a different print process.
Chadwicks produced the lids on 50-micron polyester on the MPS-EP410 UV flexo press for the range. Each lid features five colours.
“In isolation, this job may not be viewed as a particularly challenging lid,” said Claire Adams, Chadwicks Sales Manager. “However, the important requirement was to ensure that clarity of colour was maintained and consistent with the in-mould labels used on the pots. We produced a number of trials to ensure that the match was precise and the results we have achieved are excellent.”
“Chadwicks was a pleasure to work with and offered support and advice throughout the process to ensure that our needs and deadlines were met,” said Claire Irvine, Brand Manager at First Milk. “Achieving the best shelf appeal possible is crucial to retail sales and we are delighted with the outcome.”
Part of the Flexible Packaging Division of the Clondalkin Group, Chadwicks works with its sister company Nyco, a shrink sleeve manufacturer based in Switzerland, to provide a joint service to multisite European buyers. Together, Chadwicks and Nyco can provide a wider range of print processes including UV flexo, gravure and offset litho.
