Animal Food Labels Individually Designed and Printed
The pet food industry is booming, the competition in the market is growing. At the same time, the design of the packaging is becoming more important, also for pet food. Attractively designed packaging and labels set your product apart from the competition and convince the customer at first glance. This page is a guide for you to see which materials are best suited for a pet food label, which requirements a label must meet, and which design options you have.
As a standard our roll labels are permanently adhesive and therefore stick to almost any substrate and container. Would you like the label to be easy to remove again without leaving any residue? No problem: At label.co.uk, you can obtain removable labels as well as caustic-soluble labels.
Also, whether you want to apply the label to the product by machine or manually has an influence on the choice of the right label. If you stick the label onto the product by hand, our practical labels on sheets are particularly suitable.
Of course, all our finishing options are also available for pet food labels. Whether it’s hot foil stamping in copper, blind embossing, or a protective varnish in matt or glossy – there are no limits to your creativity at label.co.uk.
Mandatory Information on Labels for Pet Food
The law requires that the label contains certain key pieces of information including:
- name and product description
- composition (ingredients list)
- analytical constituents (information about nutrient levels)
- best before date and batch code
- producer or distributor name (and how to contact them for further information)
- feeding instructions (how to use the product)
- weight and/or quantity
The European Pet Food website provides guidelines on what should be included on your label. At UK Pet Food you can find more information for pet food manufacturers. For further information on pet food standards visit the Food Standards Agency’s website.
Thermal Transfer Printing
The information put on animal food labels is often variable, meaning for instance different best-before dates or ingredients. Label.co.uk offers the possibility of designing labels according to your wishes and pre-printing them on special material. If you wish, you can then print these with your own in-house thermal transfer printer and apply the variable information on the respective product individually to the pet food label afterwards.
We are happy to print barcodes on your pet food labels. Simply send us your codes as part of the printing file or in a separate table. Of course, you can also choose from our wide range of different materials and finishes for you labels with barcodes.
At label.co.uk, we place great importance on the careful use of natural resources. That’s why we offer our customers the option to print their labels on recycled materials or FSC-certified paper and thus, do something good for the environment.
