Brand owners are increasingly demanding for low migration inks for food packaging. The hubergroup responds to this development with an expansion of its production for MGA inks at the company site near Munich. The ink bases, formerly produced at the subsidiary in Ireland, will from now on be ground at Michael Huber München, where they can be finished to form process colour inks as well as spot colour inks. The production of MGA water-based coatings, characterised by a special material composition and by its GMP compliance, has been expanded as well.
Fulfilling the requirements of HACCP and operating an all-embracing hygiene management, the mother company Michael Huber München focuses on some more high-quality products from the hubergroup. This shift helps to accelerate production steps, to achieve synergies throughout the supply chain and to bring further improvement on availability and response time for the European market.
