Leading label manufacturer, Source Labels, has been shortlisted for a prestigious UK Packaging award, recognising its revolutionary Utroque™️ double-sided labelling system, the most significant breakthrough in label manufacture for half a century.

The company has been shortlisted in the highly competitive ‘Innovation of the Year’ category, acknowledging this ground-breaking technological achievement. Utroque is a revolution in eco-friendly printing, using both sides of the release liner, and represents the biggest environmental and cost reduction label innovation in 50 years.

Tim Lowe, Source Labels Managing Director, said: “It is fantastic for Utroque to have been shortlisted in the prestigious ‘Innovation of the Year’ category, recognising the huge benefits this technological achievement presents in terms of both environmental and cost reduction.

“Offering a simple but effective solution, Utroque reduces release liner consumption by 50 per cent, material weight by up to 40 percent and can be added to existing labelling lines with minimal or no adjustment, no decline in productivity and no capital expenditure, enabling hassle-free implementation. It really is a compelling win-win for companies looking to shrink their carbon footprint and embrace green practices.”
