UPM Raflatac has introduced a new product for labelling rough food produce like melons, pumpkins and squashes. The new RafFruit Plus labelstock applies a dual approach to reliable product tracing and branding, and incorporates an adhesive specially formulated for food safety.
To prevent label loss, RafFruit Plus combines a foil backed paper label face with the RH 5F rubber hotmelt adhesive, which has a high coat-weight for secure adhesion to rough surfaces.
Many other solutions for labelling rough fruits are exactly the same as those used for tyre labelling. RafFruit Plus is purpose-designed for fruits, and the adhesive formulation minimizes the risk of migration – maximizing consumer safety.
A declaration of conformity (DoC) meeting regulatory stipulations for food uses is available on request.
