Explore the New Label Technology That Will Change How People Shop

Posted By: SGK July 17, 2017

Today’s consumers are demanding more information about the food, beverage, personal care and household products they buy. Now you can give them all the information they want where and when they need it — in the aisles of any store, anytime.

The new SmartLabel™ initiative provides complete information about ingredients, nutrition, allergens, social and environmental compliance programs, usage instructions and more. To get the information they want, shoppers can scan the label with their smartphones, do a simple online search, or call a toll-free number.

In our next BrandSquare webinar, join Jim Flannery, senior executive vice president, at the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA), as he answers your questions and offers his unique insights into how you can build consumer awareness and confidence in your brand.

Be sure to register now and tune in Thursday, July 20, 2017 at 1-1:30PM ET.
