The challenges facing label converters today center around producing high volumes of short run jobs with quicker deadlines and better quality. This situation can easily be handled with optimized workflows that link all supply chain partners.
Esko, alongside sister companies Pantone, X-Rite and AVT released a new study, “Packaging and the Digital Shopper: Meeting Expectations in Food & Beverage,” highlighting what primary shoppers want from food and beverage packaging. Brand and marketing managers, design leaders, packaging professionals and tech leaders gain knowledge of shopper’s preferences in packaging within the food and beverage category in this study, along with the how and why they buy. With this knowledge they can better optimize, evolve and connect packaging through technology platforms that support end-to-end packaging value chain and leverage packaging as an enabler for product innovation.
Esko, a global provider of software and hardware for packaging design, collaboration, automation, workflow, and production, has announced its acquisition of BLUE Software, LLC, a label and artwork management software company based in Chicago, Illinois, USA, from Diversis Capital and Schawk Digital Solutions. This acquisition joins two complementary teams to unlock product packaging development, management and execution efficiencies for brand owners in the consumer packaged goods, life sciences and retail industries and for a variety of suppliers in the packaging value chain.
