Self-adhesive and resealable labels specialists Macfarlane Labels has introduced additional machinery to double capacity for production of its Reseal-it labels

The new applicator machine doubles Macfarlane’s capacity for pre-applied labels, helping to match the increasing demand from brand owners and retailers for Reseal-it products in the UK and overseas.

An advantage of pre-applied labels, according to Macfarlane, is that food manufacturers and packers do not have the additional costs of investing in their own machinery.

In addition to resealable labels in a pack design being a cost effective solution, the company also points out that minimum order quantities are also reduced, making the entire process much more accessible.

Reseal-it is the patented labelling system that allows products to be opened and closed up to 25 times, and is used by brands such as Walkers, Tesco, Sainsbury’s and  Morrisons. The Reseal-it technology provides the customer with an easily opened pack, which can be reclosed to preserve product freshness and reduce food-waste.

Derek Easson, commercial director at Macfarlane Labels said: “We are delighted to have introduced additional machinery, which improves the overall production efficiency of our resealable labels. The interest in our system has been growing dramatically within our UK and overseas customer base and this investment was essential to ensure that we could meet our customers demand”.
