The PrintCity Alliance will be at Interpack 2017 with a new partner and innovative samples
| PI 254
The members of the PrintCity Alliance will be exhibiting at their shared stand at Interpack under the theme “Food Safety and Finishing”. Appearing with them for the first time is Epple Druckfarben AG, a global printing ink supplier based in Neusäss, Germany, which is also joining the Alliance.
Food safety and print finishing
Food safety is becoming an increasingly important topic. Tightened European regulations heighten demands not only on the products used, but also on the production and logistics processes.
They impact both the food packaging itself and increasingly also print products with which children above all come into contact.
Numerous samples at the trade show demonstrate that such regulations are no obstacle to print finishing with strong visual and haptic effects, including the MÜESLOVE system solution for cereals presented in 2016 and brand-new packaging for sweets.
Epple Druckfarben AG joins the PrintCity Alliance
Epple Druckfarben AG will be appearing at Interpack for the first time and as part of the PrintCity Alliance.
“Inks for food packaging are non-migrating, organoleptically neutral and guarantee the highest quality standards in terms of colour intensity, precision and printability. We look forward to joining the PrintCity Alliance and welcoming brand-name manufacturers, printing companies and agencies to our shared stand,” said Gunther Gerlach, Chairman of the Board of Epple Druckfarben AG.
“We are very happy to have found such a highly competent and innovative partner in Epple. Our objectives and strategies have much in common, meaning that Epple ideally rounds out our portfolio. Welcome to the Alliance!” said Managing Director Rainer Kuhn, welcoming the new member of PrintCity on behalf of the Alliance.
The shared PrintCity fair stand is again located in the proven exhibition hall 11 – booth B04.
