Sun Chemical has entered into a partnership with Havi, a global company that innovates, optimises, sources and manages the packaging and supply chains of leading foodservice brands, to bring its SunVisto AquaGreen bio renewable, natural based inks to market.
Sun Chemical's bio renewable inks have been certified and specified by Havi to be a recommended natural based ink solution, ensuring that foodservice brands and manufacturers receive truly renewable packaging ink.
‘Over the past three years, Havi has worked closely with Sun Chemical to help develop natural based inks which not only contain significantly higher levels of bio renewable resin content, but also deliver high quality printing on fibre based packaging substrates,’ said Felipe Mellado, chief marketing officer, Sun Chemical. ‘The collaboration is another great example of why Sun Chemical has been a trusted innovator for 200 years. Havi came to us with a unique challenge and we provided a solution that they have certified and specified. We are also pleased to have developed a product that is in line with our own sustainability policy.’
Havi's extensive global network and relationships with package developers on all continents means that Sun Chemical's natural based inks could be used by any of its global partners anywhere in the world.
‘Many major foodservice and consumer packaged goods brands have signalled the need for packaging that delivers on their sustainability goals and objectives,’ said Shane Bertsch, vice president, Innovation, Havi. ‘We are pleased to have Sun Chemical partner with us to improve the sustainability of packaging.’
