“It’s a high recognition for all our team. This victory involves and refers to the R & D center, the IT specialists and each printing worker. Only together we could become the best. Our development of the innovative and one of the most effective technology for brand protection is the way to the world living without counterfeit and substandard products.

It should also be noted that the technology as such is generally applied to flexible packaging for the first time," said Irina Mirochnik, the IMMER Group President.
The invisible Track and Trace protection technology was developed in cooperation with the Swiss company U-NICA. The method allows you to instantly identify a counterfeit and inform the consumer in on-line mode through a mobile application. Tracking the movement of goods is possible due to the labeling of the package with a unique product code and a number and information about the origin and location of the product. This unique system makes it possible to reduce and even eliminate completely grey and black imports. It also gives the manufacturer the opportunity to experience all the advantages of product protection and of the direct contact with the buyer.
The sample packing for wet wipes has been recognized the best in the category "Packaging, label, laminates". Judges noted that the pastel ground-color of packaging is the most difficult thing in four-color printing which has been made with the highest quality. "The packaging is made by stochastic screening, which is innovative for printing on flexible packaging. All gradients are performed with observance of smooth transition from deep shadows to light tones. The image looks realistic and voluminous "- noted the participants at the Technical Forum of the Contest.
The contest was initiated in 1981 by the Gravure Association of America (GAA). Annually more than 500 manufacturers from America and Europe compete in the quality and innovation of their products.
