Source Labels has been shortlisted in the Solutions Awards for its innovative UtroqueTM double-sided labelling system – the most significant breakthrough in label manufacture for half a century and a revolution in eco-friendly printing.

The company is one of three finalists in the Solutions for Labels and Decoration category. The shortlisting is testament to the ground-breaking nature of Source Labels’ technological triumph with Utroque, acknowledging the company’s determination to provide world-class, original labelling solutions.

Utroque is a revolution in eco-friendly printing, using both sides of the release liner, and represents the most significant environmental and cost reduction label innovation in 50 years. The system reduces release liner consumption by 50 per cent, material weight by up to 40 per cent 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.

Tim Lowe, Managing Director at Source Labels, said: “We are thrilled to hear Utroque has made it to the final three for this highly competitive award. It demonstrates the value and significant impact that it will have within the labelling sector for brands and food manufacturers looking to deliver a truly sustainable packaging process.”

The Solutions Awards, organised annually by publishing house, Earth Island, celebrate innovation in developing packaging and print solutions to creatively and effectively solve problems, whether for entrants’ own businesses or their customers.

The winners will be announced at a prestigious awards ceremony at the Café de Paris, London on November 13, 2018.
