Molder: ITC Packaging (Alicante, Spain)
Label supplier: Verstraete In-Mold Labels
Spanish food producer Dulcesol approached injection molder ITC Packaging and label producer Verstraete IML seeking an innovative design for its new, organic, single-serve Naturcrem creamy soups. The result is an attractive package with an IML oxygen-barrier label from Verstraete, which extends shelf life without requiring refrigeration.
Verstraete IML used a combination of inks, lacquer and a pasteurization-resistant oxygen barrier film to create this innovative package. The result: The labels on the IML package maintain their quality and look, even following pasteurization.
