Label Materials for Chilled and Frozen Food


Labels for Frozen Food—High Performance at Low Temperatures

Frozen food labelling presents a unique set of challenges—and therefore calls for highly targeted solutions. From facestock to adhesive to application method, every aspect of the label must be prepared for sub-zero temperatures. For frozen food labels that never relent, discover Avery Dennison’s selection of quality materials and adhesives.


Lasting Labels for Standout Brands

The chilled and frozen food market is driven by a number of factors—not least consumer choice and industry regulations. When it comes to labelling and packaging, it is therefore crucial that brands have the opportunity to stand out whilst ensuring full compliance. In the eyes of the consumer, packaging quality is synonymous with product quality, so labels for frozen food need to look great and remain intact. Avery Dennison label materials not only stand up to the physical challenges of chilled food storage, but also offer total freedom when it comes to design. High quality frozen food labels ensure:

  • Clear, unique branding that communicates product quality at the point of sale
  • Durable label design that remains intact despite cold, moisture and repeated product handling
  • Important product information is preserved, such as preparation guidelines, best-before dates and nutritional values.
