Uflex engineers ‘Seal of Authenticity’ for global coffee brand

Uflex Coffee Seal of AuthenticityAs one of India’s largest global flexible packaging solution companies, Uflex believes in pro-active value engineering to create differentiation that enhances the brand equity of its clientele. One such offering of late has been the bespoke ‘Seal of Authenticity’ to Nescafe Classic – the much celebrated coffee brand of India’s biggest food company, Nestle India.

The ‘Seal of Authenticity’ is a tamper-proof brand protection/anti-counterfeiting solution that does not disturb the retail price coordinates. The seal among several other features comprises a 3D reflective lens image using transfer technology.

The development of this feature for Nescafe saw a perfect interplay of synergies between an external agency that created the lens; the holography business vertical at Uflex that prepared the master to be further able to replicate more of such lenses; and also the converting/packaging business vertical at Uflex that successfully transposed this technology on to the laminate using the transfer technology.

This is a cost effective anti-counterfeiting solution affordable by all genres of brands. Ever since the solution has been offered to Nescafe Classic, other brands have also stepped forward asking for similar brand protection solutions.

Ashok Chaturvedi, chairman and managing director, Uflex, said: “The Seal of Authenticity is one of the very many solutions that my organisation offers to our esteemed clients across the globe. By engineering ‘The Seal of Authenticity’, Uflex has imposed an insurmountable Technology Barrier; Application Barrier and Process Know How Barrier in the brand protection solution arena. We have raised the bar of competition in the best interest of our clients. When you raise the bar you shake off the fake and the spurious automatically.”
