Food labels serve many different purposes, but there are some labels that do an especially important job. For people who have food sensitivities or allergies, the ability to rely on a label to eliminate exposure or to identify troublesome ingredients to avoid can be a matter of life and death.
Granted, it is just a label. But, at Epsen Hillmer Graphics in Omaha, Nebraska, those are words you’ll never hear spoken. Every label is important to the product and customer it serves and we take the responsibility of labeling food products very seriously.
The label is the single most visible way to communicate food product information to consumers. It provides basic information, allergy warnings, and other brand-related information. Food labels are also used by discerning consumers to explore nutritional and other information to make educated choices about what they eat.
Increasing consumer awareness has also led to greater enforcement and policies surrounding food labeling, including the identification of potential allergens or ingredients that are not suited for individuals who may have certain dietary restrictions. For example, gluten-free diets, those who must eat only dairy-free foods, or those with serious peanut or nut allergies, rely on food labels to help keep them from eating something detrimental to their health.
Another way Epsen Hillmer Graphics in Omaha can help food product manufacturers is through producing high-quality labels that adhere well, remain intact and readable and provide all the essential details consumers need to make informed decisions about what they eat.
By selecting just the right papers, adhesives, and finishes, food product manufacturers can be certain the label they are paying for does the job from the packaging plant to the grocery store to the consumer pantry. This is not optional when dealing with foods that require special labeling to warn about allergens, ingredients or preparation details that could be harmful to someone with sensitivities.
With a selection of papers, finishes, adhesives, inks and labeling processes from which to choose, every kind of food product can find a label that meets the need at Epsen Hillmer Graphics and will also look great, maintaining brand colors and design elements that help food products stand out from all the others on store shelves.
