We print a wide range of food labels, used in product packaging, both for primary packaging (e.g. label for pasta packaging, labels for honey jars, labels for glass jar, etc.) and elements to support use, such as open and close labels.

Labels for food products: the importance of material choice

To obtain a finished product that can be used by the consumer, different materials and labels must be chosen depending on the food that will be labelled, for this reason, we provide several possible solutions for your food products:

  • main labels for packages made of plastic, paper and glass, including jars of all shapes and sizes

  • dynamic labels for tracking products with barcode, QR code or progressive codes

  • labels with variable graphics, that is, with variants of a main subject (useful, for example, for special or seasonal editions or for timed promotions)

  • open and close labels for packages 

  • Stick-on and stick-off labels for promotional campaigns or scratch off labels (always for the same use)

We have gained experience in various sectors (pasta factories, meat processing, beekeeping, fruit and vegetables, etc.) which allow us to advise each customer on the most suitable materials and finishes for use. This flexibility also allows you to print labels that must adhere to special materials or in particular conditions (e.g. pasteurization or frozen foods) and are obviously suitable for food contact with low migration inks and certified or ecological materials.

Food Labels: Application Examples


We print customized ada adhesive labels to the packaging of food products. It's possible to choose  the format, the material, the number of rolls and the Print orientation according to your needs. Excellent for creating labels for jam and honey jars, for pasta and rice packages and in general for the entire food sector when the label is not in direct contact with the food.

Print Food Labels for Jars


Personalized honey jar labels put the finishing touches on a magnificent collection.

Remember that if you are creating labels for honey, they must include: your brand, ingredients, net quantity (weight not volume), production and expiry dates, country of origin or place of provenance, address. This information is set out in the Food Information Regulations 2014. ​ Many customers who produce honey decide to also add the seal label for the lid, as it protects your jars from any tampering. The seal labels are made so that they can break when the jar is opened.

Ennobling Food Labels

Food products often require a graphic update of the packaging: it is necessary for various reasons: line extensions, logo update, product update or search for a different price positioningnt.


We help our customers carry out a complete restyling of their product labels.

An example is the realization of this project relating to the printing of food labels. Specifically, we created a quality label, printed on coated paper, with glossy embossed register paint. Through screen printing, more accentuated tactile and visual effects have been created to give the consumer a unique touch & feel experience! The print finishing process also involves the choice of fine finishes. In this way we have differentiated the packaging from the competition, encouraging choice on the shelf.
