Impact Labels certified to provide labels for Coles
Impact Labels has become one of two national suppliers approved to provide labels for Coles Supermarkets as a preferred flexographic label printer.
The Australian-owned company participated in the Coles Forum to develop a benchmark certification for its print suppliers across packaging and labelling. In a trial to ensure Impact’s printing solution satisfied Coles’ packaging and labelling requirements, Impact achieved 97% accuracy in the matching of PMS and special colours, leading to the successful supplier certification.
Impact uses Jet Technologies’ UV flexographic printing solutions, including Pulse Roll Label Products’ PureTone FPC (Food Packaging Compliant) UV flexo inks which are used to print food and beverage packaging, and which fulfil the total colour gamut required to comply with Coles’ print quality standards.
Byron Hudghton, Managing Director of Impact Labels, said the company is excited to grow its partnership with Coles. “Impact is looking at the big picture in being able to prove to Coles, and other brand owners and retailers, what we can do to optimise colours using a standardised process,” he said. “We take a print-by-numbers approach that is analytical in set, measure, calculation and the processes behind it. By combining PureTone FPC’s high-density, vibrant and substrate versatile inks, with the right controls, tools and systems, we are well positioned to offer the best product that meets the expectations of our customers every time.”
Jet Technologies’ Director Jack Malki highlighted the benefits of the company’s ink systems, stating it is vital they are “fully compliant with the most rigid industry regulations, particularly when it comes to food packaging and labelling applications”.
“PureTone FPC inks are not only migration compliant, but Impact also benefits from the high-strength mono-pigmented formulation, which gives cleaner, brighter colours, and, in combination with digital colour management, provides accurate, consistent brand colours, right first time.”
