Customers awarded with RafCycle® certificates in Italy

UPM Raflatac participated in Ecomondo, the  International Trade Fair of Material & Energy Recovery and Sustainable Development in Rimini, Italy between 7-10 Nov 2012. In addition to informing about  the RafCycle® waste management concept, the exhibition was the perfect opportunity for UPM Raflatac to thank those Italian label printers that had joined RafCycle ® this year. They were awarded with official RafCycle Partner Certificates.

The companies receiving the certification were Eurolabel, Labelit, Pozzoni Etichette, Rifa, Staf, and Sutermeister. A certificate will also be given later to the San Carlo food manufacturer for the reuse of the silicone Proliner PP30 backing. The partner companies can now use the Rafcycle logo in the marketing and communication to their customers to inform about the enhanced recycling opportunities.

In Italy, RafCycle is made possible by L.C.I., a leading supplier of recycled paper and board, partly owned by UPM. Supported by L.C.I., UPM Raflatac offers the RafCycle concept to its customers throughout Italy, giving them chance to reduce costs and the amount of labelstock waste sent to landfill.
