When the year started, Avery Dennison has added more than 50 new Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)-certified label materials to its product portfolio. The portfolio now totals more than 150 different constructions, with more expected before the end of the year, that will feature core face stocks used in food, wine, spirits and dairy applications.
The FSC chain of custody process ensures that materials in the products purchased are coming from responsibly managed sources. Avery Dennison said new additions to its portfolio will help drive the use of these products throughout the value chain.
Angelo Depietri, vice-president and general manager of Avery Dennison Materials Group Europe said, ‘Label converters and brand owners are looking for innovations that improve sustainability credentials. As a market leader, it’s our responsibility to develop, produce and promote products that help decrease environmental impact. Expanding our FSC-certified portfolio reinforces Avery Dennison’s commitment to offer more sustainable label and packaging solutions and is an important next step in our effort to make our industry more sustainable.
