Digital printing at the service of product perception
Julien Deblonde/Alexis Lawrie – Technico-commercial/Technico-commercialLABELYS GROUP’

Our consumer companies are guided by the senses and advertisers use communication and marketing to capture them. Packaging is one of the keys to the sale of a gold product, in a time of globalization, the latter must be adapted to each market it aims to develop effectively.
As part of the development of French vineyards and to allow them to adapt to the different markets they address while respecting the constraints and expectations of these, digital printing makes it possible to make short runs in a reactive manner. While allowing the customization of bottle labels.
Thus the same wine can convey different ideas while keeping its identity.

Luxury packaging needs to reflect the premium nature of the brands and product it is representing, however there is an increasing urgency to review the impact of the materials we are using to create it. Whilst recognising that we cannot instantly resolve all the challenges presented in the specification of materials, process and logistics it is clearly possible to begin the process of change.
The objective of the discussion we are having today is to discuss 3 key areas in respect to the principles of expanding sustainable solutions into the luxury packaging market.
1. Understanding the materials and process currently used.
2. Measuring the sustainability values of current packaging
3. Practical solutions that can be employed to improve sustainability values
