THE NETHERLANDS • Hagmaier Etiketten & Druck of Münsingen, Germany, for the second time won the converter award for their commitment to recycling. Since 2011, release liner, matrix waste, and other related secondary materials like paper and film are all recycled by the company, eliminating landfill. The judges also recognized, that Hagmaier is also very active in promoting the value of its recycling activities across the label industry supply chain, and also offers brand owner customers the possibility to return their used release liner at neutral cost. Rodolfo Hagmaier collected the award on the company’s behalf.

Recycling has been a major focus within the international label industry association FINAT for a number of years. For the third year running, they rewarded exceptional achievement in this arena via a focussed competition, the FINAT Recycling Awards. Together with UK cider makers Brothers Drinks, German label printers Hagmaier Etiketten & Druck are the headliners in the 2016 FINAT recycling awards, presented during the recent European Label Forum in Amsterdam. Conceived as a way to increase visibility of the industry’s sustainability profile and, in parallel, the increasing recycling opportunities for label waste – particularly spent release liner – the competition rewards both label printers’ and brand owners’ outstanding initiatives.
