Here are the highlights from this week from our Twitter account @WeberPackaging.

Alcohol Labeling

Voluntary nutrition labeling approved for alcoholic beverage packaging http://ow.ly/lVXLS #Labels

Ever wonder how many calories are in your glass of wine? Well the National Consumers League believes this information needs to be labeled on alcohol beverage packaging.

At the end of May, the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau announced that alcoholic beverage manufacturers can voluntarily label nutrition information on their packaging.

Are there any other consumable products that you think should require more nutritional information?

 

Limited Release

Perrier re-issues Warhol designs from 1980s ad campaign for new packaging http://ow.ly/lXqg3 #Labels @FastCoDesign

Do you remember the Andy Warhol inspired Campbell Soup labels from last summer? They're back! This time Perrier is releasing a special collection of Andy Warhol design labels for their 150th anniversary.

The designs were created by Andy Warhol for Perrier in the 1980s for a print ad campaign.

Will you collect them all?

Follow our Tweets at @WeberPackaging for news in labels, packaging, manufacturing. Here are a few recent Tweets about labels.

 

Adhesives

How to choose the right label adhesive http://ow.ly/jYfaD #LabelingTips

This article presents information to consider when selecting adhesives for your labels. Choosing the right adhesives is important because labels are used in every industry. Label adhesives meant for the medical industry might not be correct for your food label. And only certain adhesives work in cold, wet or refrigerated conditions.

We'll help you select the best label material and adhesive based on your application.

 

Meat Labels

Meat Labels Get An Upgrade To Help Consumers & Reboot Sales http://ow.ly/jTQPK

Label changes are coming for the American meat industry!

Soon you will see new names to describe the cuts of meat at the grocery store. The original Uniform Retail Meat Identification Standards that are currently being used to identify the different cuts of meat were meant for butchers and not every-day customers.

After nearly two years of consumer research, the National Pork Board, the Beef Checkoff Program and federal agriculture officials have agreed on an updated labeling system that should hit stores just in time for prime grilling season.

More than 350 cuts of pork and beef will carry new labels that will include new names, characteristics of the meat and cooking guidelines. The new labels will eliminate confusion for the consumer and should increase sales.

We're back from a great trade show in Anaheim, CA!

For our Top Tweets blog we decided to share some of the biggest food and beverage labeling news stories of the week. Remember to follow all our tweets at @WeberPackaging.

 

Maple Labeling

New York maple producers argue for uniform labels http://ow.ly/hRAFE #LabelingNews

A new labeling initiative is being supported by Canadian and US maple manufacturers. Currently each brand describes different types of syrups with their own terminology. This can be confusing to the consumer and hurts the maple syrup industry when exporting the products overseas.

Monday we'll be headed to sunny California for the 2013 WestPack trade show. We're excited to meet with our West Coast friends and partners and introduce our new labeling system.

 

Packaging Matters

MeadWestvaco study: Consumers dissatisfied with #packaging http://ow.ly/htHo7

This week MeadWestvaco released a consumer satisfaction study called Packaging Matters. Some of the most notable findings were that satisfaction decreases when the consumer uses the package at home, especially to-go containers.

Read more findings from this study at Packaging Digest.

 

Beverage Labels

Are energy drink #labels missing important information and warnings? http://ow.ly/hvBCX

Energy drinks do not fall in the same category as other beverages for labeling regulation. Because of this, the labels are not required to include caffeine amount and health warnings. Do you think energy drinks should be required to share more information on their labels?

 

Pinterest and Food

Why your food brand should be on #Pinterest - Food is the #1 category http://ow.ly/hpwAW

This infographic presents the facts behind the Pinterest user. Because users interact the most with the food category, we recommend our food industry friends get involved and share their products.

Pinterest is a great place to share your brand images and give tips on recipes for your product.
