Safetouch Barrier

SafeTouch Barrier is the brand name for Oriel’s ‘Direct Food Contact’ products and printing services


Following rigorous R&D we can provide printing services for the food-contact side of packaging by using special direct-food-contact inks and a water-based barrier coating.

This innovative service can negate the need for a plastic film barrier and offers an environmental alternative whilst allowing the inside of food packaging to be decorated.
