Inplacsa Offset-Prints Flexible Package for Maheso

GIRONA, SPAIN | Comexi Group, Inplacsa, and Maheso have cooperated to achieve a more sustainable packaging that keeps the quality and the food security characteristics of the frozen products company. Furthermore, Maheso steps forward in its commitment to the environment using a packaging without the use of solvents, avoiding emissions of volatile compounds to the atmosphere.

The production of “Pop Nuggets” new packaging, which will be presented during Alimentaria 2014, International Food and Drinks Exhibition, was carried out in a record time. The three Catalan companies achieved, in less than a week, agreement on the print run and the job production. It has been possible due to the characteristics of the Comexi OFFSET Ci8, which can make new plates in minutes, providing fast and flexible production.

Inplacsa, specialists in flexographic printing of flexible packaging, incorporated this new printing technology for flexible packaging in 2012, the year of Comexi Ci8 OFFSET release. The possibilities offered by the offset press from Comexi Group have also been recognized by Maheso, industry leader in the manufacture of ready-made and precooked frozen products.

For the production of this new packaging, Maheso has decided to change its current carton to a new format of flexible material. Keeping the same technology—offset—but changing the material, the company could ensure the brand image thanks to an optimum image resolution.

The offset technology is characterized by the use of lithographic plates, with much less cost compared with photopolymers or engraved cylinders used in traditional flexographic and rotogravure technologies. The cost reduction at this part of the process allows to change the design, language, to add new logos or to make promotional campaigns without additional printing costs, as well as reduce minimum print runs and print film in stock.
