Hubergroup Print Solutions introduces MGA Contact, its new sheetfed offset ink product. The ink series is suitable for safe printing on the inside of paper and cardboard food packaging. MGA Contact is approved for direct contact with food, meaning no functional barriers are required. The colour gamut and light fastness of this ink series, which is now available across the globe, are comparable with those of conventional offset inks.

“With MGA Contact, brand owners and packaging designers now have twice as much space to display their messages and information. This way, packaging for fruit, vegetables or chocolates can feature a more attractive design,” explains Josef Sutter, product manager for Sheetfed/UV Europe at Hubergroup.

This is possible as the ink specialist only uses ingredients that have been authorized for direct contact with food in accordance with EU guidelines and FDA criteria. Moreover, the ink series is produced in a separate production facility at Hubergroup’s plant in Celle, Germany.
