The Sinclair Team is proud to announce the launch of its new certified compostable Sinclair EcoLabel® in North America at PMA’s Fresh Summit 2019. Sinclair will also be showcasing the Sinclair EcoLabel on the Large Label V6 system designed for labeling large fresh produce such as melons, squash, pumpkins and more. Sinclair EcoLabel now offers customers globally a sustainable labeling option and meets the European EN13432: 2000 standard for compostable and biodegradable packaging. The full label construction – adhesive, face stock and inks – is certified compostable by TÜV Austria under OK compost - Industrial and Seedling certification schemes.
As with all of their labels Sinclair EcoLabel is food-safe, meeting EU and FDA regulations, and is supplied on Sinclair EcoLiner® backing paper, which is also certified compostable.
Colin Woodward, Sinclair President & CEO, commented: “Delivering the Sinclair EcoLabel is a ground-breaking moment for Sinclair and the industry. For a number of years, we have worked tirelessly to provide a certified and fully compostable labeling solution. With this achievement, Sinclair continues to invest in environmentally friendly labeling solutions. Our vision is to lead and inspire the fresh produce labeling industry to minimize impact on the planet.”
Also at PMA’s Fresh Summit is the Sinclair Large Label V6 labeling solution for larger fresh produce. The Large Label V6 uses hit on sight technology to label larger fruits and vegetables conveyed at speeds of up to 400 per minute. With label sizes up to 3 x 2” the new Large Label V6 allows sizer interface, is height adjustable for a wide variety of fresh produce and offers flexible mounting options on a range of equipment.
Duncan Jones, Marketing Manager, commented: “The Large Label V6 innovation provides Sinclair customers with a solution to the rising costs of large produce labelling. The automation of labelling with large labels will help producers save time and cost in label application. As well as providing a new option in the widest range of fresh produce labelling solutions available, the large label also offers a sustainable branding solution for large fruit and vegetables.”
