Digitize labeling processes to transform your business
To compete in an increasingly challenging environment, food and beverage manufacturers must take advantage of new technologies to respond faster as well as reduce costs wherever possible.
Improved agility, increased productivity and better quality management are just a few of the gains that food and beverage manufacturers are experiencing by digitally transforming their labeling. Find out how your company can benefit from digitizing your labeling by implementing a modern label management system.
Food & beverage companies that have transformed their labeling
Swiss food manufacturer, Coop uses NiceLabel to standardize labeling
Coop is the second-largest retailer in Switzerland with wholesale and production companies located throughout Europe. They print a wide variety of labels that contain allergen, ingredient and nutrition information. They also print packaging labels, containing ingredient, allergen and best before date information, and pallet labels.
Coop’s fragmented labeling landscape was not sustainable. They decided to implement a standardized label printing solution. The goal was to have labels that were universal and portable, so that they would get the same output regardless of the printer or resolution.

One solution for all your label and marking printers
NiceLabel technology enables food and beverage manufacturers to use a single software platform for all printing devices and for all packaging and shipping, from primary to tertiary labeling. With NiceLabel, you can eliminate the risk of labeling errors and maximize your supply chain efficiency. NiceLabel software will help you to streamline regulatory compliance, save hours of time and significantly reduce your operational costs.
Future-proof technology built for F&B manufacturers
NiceLabel’s label management system, LMS Enterprise, enables you to automate label and direct marking printing by implementing a standardized integration with your Manufacturing Execution System (MES) at each site. By centralizing the master data and establishing a single source of truth, you can eliminate manual data entry errors, mislabeling and associated costs.
Unite all your printers with one system
LMS Enterprise supports a wide range of industrial printers used in the food and beverage industry. These include label, print and apply, continuous inkjet, laser marking, thermal transfer overprinters and thermal inkjet. This enables you to work with one label management system that is capable of integrating all your label and direct marking printers with your organization’s MES and ERP systems.
Integrate label printing with MES and ERP
LMS Enterprise includes an integration system with seamless support for Wonderware, SAP and many other MES and ERP systems used in the food and beverage industry. This allows you to integrate your label and direct marking printers with master data. By eliminating the need for a Human Machine Interface (HMI) to enter data such as lot number and best before date, you reduce costly errors caused by manual data entry and product mislabeling.
Design industry-specific labels that meet regulatory requirements
The label designer was built with the food and beverage industry in mind. By enabling business users to take control of label creation, you save valuable time and money. The result is an agile label process that enables you to quickly comply with industry requirements and standards, such as EU 1169/2011, the F.D.A.’s Nutrition Facts Panel, Country of Origin Labeling (COOL) and other food safety regulations. Industry-specific capabilities make formatting allergen and nutrition information quick and easy.
Create a fully transparent label process
The document management system allows food and beverage companies to control the entire label process. Having a full overview of label production helps you ensure accurate labeling and maintain food safety compliance. It also provides full traceability of every label printed or marked. Traceability extends beyond printing to include every change request and every system event, giving you an accurate record of who did what, where and when.
