Dr. Simon Daplyn looks at how digital printing supports safer food packaging and explores the challenge of finding a non-harmful, effective ink that works across different substrates.

challenging. Manufacturers also face fragmented regulations and legislation which, in a global marketplace, can prove difficult to navigate.
