Labelink’s ability to manufacture consistent, accurate and safe labels for industries such as food and beverage, health and beauty and pharma is fuelled by a commitment to adhere the Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), the HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) Program and to maintain our IFS PACsecure and GMI certifications.

Quality control based on internationally recognized standards allows Labelink to:

  • Trigger a culture of quality awareness. Effective quality control allows everyone at Labelink to be aware of his role and the importance he or she plays in the final product. It helps us live two of our core values: commitment and pride in our work.
  • Contribute to resource conservation. Sustainable development is an increasingly important value for our customer base and quality control allows Labelink better utilize available resources and minimize waste.
  • Ensure every product meets the same high standards. In order to achieve that, quality control takes place across multiple checkpoints, from maintaining the equipment, to recognizing inconsistencies in raw materials and inspecting finished products.

Comply with the client’s specifications and guarantee the consistency of his brand

Labelink strives to maintain and conform with international certifications and programs:

IFSpacSecure, HACCP, GMI, UL

IFS PACsecure Certification

IFS PACsecure is the world’s most comprehensive standard for the quality and the safety of packaging materials. This highly regarded certification integrates quality guidelines such as the Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and focuses on the capability of the supplier to deliver products that comply with the client’s specifications.

HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) Program

HACCP program is one of the most trusted safety systems in the food industry. Suppliers of packaging components have an important role to play to ensure that the highest standard of safety and hygiene are met, especially in cases where the printed component is in direct contact with the food. HACCP principles are therefore applied to the packaging industry to provide a series of measures that aim to prevent and eliminate hazards.

GMI Certification

As a global leader in packaging quality services, GMI certifies, monitors and measures the performance of designated packaging suppliers—a process that holds them accountable to established brand owner standards. GMI helps control the variables and ensure brand integrity through printer certification, production run sample measurement and in-store packaging assessments.
