British manufacturer Ravenwood has appointed Melbourne-based Result Group as its agent to promote linerless technology in this region.
Increasing concerns about liner waste generated and the banning of Australian export waste, has led to linerless labels earning considerable interest in the Australian packaging and labelling industry. Brand owners are now often reacting to growing interest from consumers concerns about climate change, leading them to re-evaluate their packaging and labelling choices.
Michael Dossor, group general manager at Result Group said: ‘Our partnership with Ravenwood allows us to deliver the best linerless technology, support packaging minimization initiatives and contribute towards delivering sustainability targets for landfill reduction. Linerless labels are making headway in Australia as more brands move towards sustainable packaging so they can reach the aggressive sustainability goals mandated in Australia, especially the 2025 National Packaging targets.’
Result Group has purchased a Nobac 5000 linerless applicator as part of its demonstration and testing fleet. The Nobac range is designed for applying linerless labels to the many food types and pack specifications. In addition to sleeving fixed-weight products, these machines can link to weigh-scales from a range of manufacturers for variable-weight products, as well as check weighing.
Linerless labels are supplied in a range of weights and materials, including paper and polypropylene.
‘We are absolutely thrilled to welcome Result Group to our global distributor network, given their commitments and policies with regards to supporting a carbon neutral future,’ commented Paul Beamish, managing director of Ravenwood.
Result Group, established 12 years ago, is headquartered in Melbourne with satellite offices located in Sydney, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Mackay, Cairns, Adelaide and Perth.
