UPM Raflatac: Safe labelling for rough fruits

FINLAND UPM Raflatac introduced a new product for labelling rough food produce like melons, pumpkins and squashes. The new RafFruit Plus labelstock applies a dual approach to reliable product tracing and branding, and incorporates an adhesive specially formulated for food safety. To prevent label loss, RafFruit Plus combines a foil backed paper label face with the RH 5F rubber hotmelt adhesive, which has a high coat-weight for secure adhesion to rough surfaces. Many other solutions for labelling rough fruits are exactly the same as those used for tyre labelling. According to the company, the new labelstock is purpose-designed for fruits, and the adhesive formulation minimizes the risk of migration.
