Croft Printing

Month in Focus: October

Marilyn Briggs News, Products

October is always a busy month not only fulfilling orders but also because we are double checking everything is as it should be in advance of our annual BRC audit. Gaining the accreditation is important to us as this means we are able to fully guarantee the safety of our self-adhesive labels and that we have fulfilled all the legal and hygienic requirements required by the standard.

Being a BRC Certificated company means that we are a preferred supplier to many food manufacturers, distributors and retailers who feel assured that we have adopted manufacturing best practices and support this with the availability of quality management systems and information that demonstrate high levels of hygiene and cleanliness.

Whilst we fully expect to pass again this year, it is always a relief to get the confirmation!

During October, we continued to work at full strength in order to support our customers. We are absolutely committed to supporting your team by producing quality self-adhesive labels, delivered on-time and in full. Here are just a few examples from our October order book:

Printed Packaging Pouches

A new service we launched last month, we have completed our first orders which included the supply of 2,200 printed packaging pouches for a brand new muesli product which our customer wanted to sell in 2.1kg packs.

Natureflex Environmentally Friendly Self Adhesive Labels

While most renewable packaging is based on corn, potatoes or sometimes wheat, NatureFlex™ uses cellulose from wood pulp produced on sustainable plantations and is one of the world’s most naturally abundant organic materials. We fulfilled another order for these highly sustainable and environmentally friendly labels.

Tamper Proof Seals for Gifts and Cosmetics

When gifts and cosmetics are sold it is important to be able to easily tell if the contents inside have been opened and used or refilled with other substances when being sold or returned for a refund. Tamper proof seals are a great way to ensure contents are secure and as the name states – can’t be tampered with! This month we printed 600,000 clear gloss 38mm x 16mm PP security labels, 75,000 clear gloss PP seals 51mm x 25mm and 850,000 clear gloss Natureflex 33mm x 22mm seals.

Cake Box Seal Labels

On a similar vein, bakeries and patisseries who sell individual cakes prefer to offer product in boxes which they can seal. If this seal is broken, they know the box has been opened! We supplied 30,000 coloured 50mm dia. self-adhesive labels to this cheesecake manufacturer.

Starter Labels for Meal Deal

This well-known supermarket needed to ensure products in a three course meal deal were clearly labelled to avoid discrepancies at check out. We supplied 20,000 brightly coloured 20mm dia. labels to highlight the word “Starter”.

Christmas Product Over Labelling

We helped another retailer overcome the need to totally reprint and recycle the packaging on 5,875 boxes of yule logs  when a barcode change needed to be applied.  We also applied price labels to 37,000 trifle pudding sleeves.

Vegetable Tray Identification and Traceability Labels

Another order from a contract packer who specialises in preparing boxes of fresh vegetables. We supplied self-adhesive labels for product identification and to aid the traceability of growers.

Tray Base Labels

And finally, our monthly summary would not be complete without a mention to our repeat order to print tray base labels – 700,000 this month!
