All4Labels Global Packaging Group has launched INTEGRITAG, an entity implementing secure and intelligent features into digital printing solutions to enhance protection, transparency, efficiency, and sustainability across supply chains.

Based in Milan, INTEGRITAG combines RFID from Rako Secure, holographic security labelling via the Hologram Company, and Centro Grafico’s high-security labelling to manufacture secure label solutions. These technologies are expected to tackle product fraud and security threats; streamline the efficiency of supply chains; and fit seamlessly into existing products or packaging.

With its technologies already said to enhance companies’ competitiveness and success, the entity aims to legitimize products and ensure the safety of citizens and consumers. It offers real-time tracking across the supply chain and seeks to keep authentic products out of the grey market to protect brand revenues – offering smart labels, holographic security products, QR Fingerprint, EAS, SaaS & Data Analytics, and embossing base foils.

Using RFID and eRFID products, it is designed to unlock real-time process visibility, reduce errors and waste, improve operational efficiencies, and help its users meet their sustainability goals. It provides fully integrated advanced solutions in hopes of optimizing supply chain efficiencies, as well as protecting brands and identities and improving consumer engagement.

All4Labels hopes that INTEGRITAG can benefit both companies and governments and states that the entity aligns with its commitment to upgrading its products and services. INTEGRITAG is a strategic investment expected to boost All4Labels’ competitiveness in the smart solutions sector.

CEO Paloma Alonso says: “We are delighted to see the intelligent and security business line grow under the INTEGRITAG umbrella, as we continue to invest in solutions that add important label functionalities and generate additional value for our customers.

“Our R&D teams are in the process of commercializing various solutions for a broad range of industries. Our anticipated sustainable RFID antenna will revolutionize the RFID market by enabling fully recyclable labels using laser-cut technology.”

Jan-Niclas Bizot, managing director at INTEGRITAG, adds: “As a leading labels manufacturer, we have concentrated our technology division and empowered our manufacturing site near Milan, Italy, to ensure the highest security standards.

“We are very pleased to further expand our global reach, leveraging the many possibilities of the All4Labels group and enhancing our intelligent solutions portfolio under the INTEGRITAG brand. It will offer our customers real added value.”

In a similar development, Adrich‘s refillable smart label packaging solution – nominated in the commercialized Active and Intelligent category at the Sustainability Awards 2023 – captures real-time consumer usage data and analyzes quantitative product usage, connection with consumers at consumption, and product subscription models.

Avery Dennison’s on-demand, end-to-end Digital Product Passport as a Service (DPPaaS) aims to connect the physical and digital worlds through its intelligent labeling the company‘s connected product cloud platform. This hopes to help brands fully prepare for forthcoming EU legislation on Digital Product Passports (DPPs).
