The Backstory

Nutraceuticals are one the fastest growing segments in North America and are likely to progress at a CAGR of over 7.8% from 2016 to 2024.* That’s because all these factors are increasing:

Functional food and beverages utilized by the baby boomer population in North America
Popularity of botanical dietary supplements due to low cost and easy availability
Consumption of sports and energy drinks
Rising disposable income of consumers
Innovation in nutrition content and flavor which will open new avenues for industry growth over the next eight years
Interest in supplements that can reduce total and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol content, thus reducing the risk of cardiac diseases

In-House Label Printing

When it comes to the North American nutraceutical market, why are companies like yours increasingly investing in in-house label-printing solutions?

Nutraceutical producers report lead times for their labels are 7-10 days, longer if their label vendors are running a new design. If a label vendor only has conventional printing presses on their production floor, lead times can take even longer and minimum job sizes are usually around 1,000-2,000 linear feet. However, most nutraceutical companies have run sizes much smaller than that. If a label vendor has digital production presses on their production floor, you’re going to pay an ultra-premium for those labels. With multiple SKU’s, small runs and the need for break-out color - you need a better solution.
