Compostable labels

Our compostable labels, also called bio labels, are made of renewable sources and materials.

Compostable label

The compostable label consists of sugar cane fibre paper, with an organic water-soluble adhesive and printed with an environmentally friendly and "food-safe" ink with no migration on the product. The compostable labels can also be printed full-colour and have the same Flexo HD quality as the printing work on regular labels. 

Why the compostable label?

The sugar cane fibre paper is a white or natural high-quality wood-free paper, made of agricultural waste (baggasse). This paper is 100% biodegradable and 100% compostable. The compostable label can obviously be recycled. We use BioTak glue for the adhesive. This is a certified adhesive which is degraded by nature within 90 days. This organic water-soluble adhesive consists of sustainable materials and may be permanent or non-permanent.
