SECURE ZAP by Favini  (Company news)

At Luxepack Monaco, Favini presented a brand protection solution: style and security for packaging and tags.

Speciality paper makers Favini, in partnership with speciality paper distributor Strand Paper, have developed a new paper-based material for protecting your brand against counterfeiting.

A premium uncoated SBB board with a special security feature that allows you to distinguish the genuine product from a fake.
The engineered paper-board contains a tagging that reacts to a portable reader emitting sound at the point of contact. The result is a board perfect in the area of brand protection, in particular for carton box design.

The excellent whiteness and pleasant surface texture, makes this high quality paper with SECURE ZAP the ideal product for producing premium/luxury cartons for spirits, health & beauty, jewellery, fashion and design products.

This new paper with SECURE ZAP is designed for Strand Paper to work with the litho and digital printing process in combination with various finishing processes.

The premium board with SECURE ZAP can also be offered in solid black through indent making. It is part of a wider portfolio of products available across Europe distributed by Strand Paper.

Secure-Zap stands for the security feature for brand protection developed by Favini together with additional solutions.

Luxury goods with high monetary value, such as designer watches, handbags and perfumes, aren’t the only products that are affected by counterfeiting. The black market also places great criminal value on printed identification and security documents, such as passports and visas.

As a specialist in manufacturing graphic specialty papers, Favini is in the ideal position to integrate its technical and security features into papers to support genuine brands and security documents.

Branded goods and security documents can be protected with specialist security techniques – making the original distinguishable from the fake. These techniques, which are difficult to copy, can be integrated within packaging and papers to make the product clearly identifiable as the genuine item.

Favini offers brand protection for the whole range of luxury items from sportswear to teddy bears, including everything else in between. The paper specialist is also ideally placed to integrate its technical and security features into the paper used for secure paper documents.

Favini Secure Suite is the modular range developed by Favini that includes the following security features that can be used either individually or in combination for even greater protection:
-Watermarks, fibres and chemical reagents are used as general security features to protect products and documents;
-Instant verification systems (Secure-Zap, -Dust, -Check) use markers, lens, laser pens and beepers to check authenticity;
-Secure Skin features a micro emboss containing logos or patterns and other micro text only visible with a 15x magnification lens.

Leather to paper: Out of Favini research comes REMAKE  (Company news)

Favini confirms its commitment to luxury by presenting a new paper made out of fibres obtained from leather-making processes.

Favini, a global leader in the use of natural raw materials to produce innovative graphic specialties for the packaging of fashion and other luxury goods, presents REMAKE, the revolutionary paper that includes fibres obtained from leather-making processes.

This innovative paper is produced with 25% by-product from the leather goods industry, 30% FSC-certified post-consumption recycled cellulose, and 45% FSC-certified virgin cellulose fibre.

The result is a luxurious, recyclable and 100% biodegradable paper that offers excellent print and conversion performance, making it suited for a wide range of applications, from brochures and cards to shopping bags and packaging for the fashion, luxury and creative applications.

In addition, the leather particles that are visible on the surface of the paper give it a distinctive look and a soft, surprisingly velvety feel, making it ideal for the most creative of projects.
The production process for REMAKE is a perfect example of up-cycling. This complex process transforms the waste material into a high-value product ideal for luxury packaging.

In keeping with Favini’s green philosophy, the production of REMAKE saves an estimated 25% of greenhouse gas emissions compared to another paper with similar characteristics. Any unavoidable emissions are then offset in their entirety by the carbon credits which are purchased by Favini. These credits finance valued projects whose primary objectives will improve the environment by absorbing CO2 in the atmosphere.

“Currently, leather industry waste is used to produce a regenerated leather or as fertilizer, and a portion is sent to landfill. Favini has developed a new process for the treatment of leather by-products in order to obtain a recyclable, biodegradable product that can be combined within traditional paper-production techniques. Our research and development labs never stop testing potential sources of industrial waste for use in the production of new papers. We are proud to have been able to achieve such a high-quality paper containing leather by-products. Thanks to REMAKE, we can increase our focus on high-value products for niche markets and on methods for reusing the by-products of other manufacturing segments,” said Eugenio Eger, CEO Favini.

Favini presents Crush Bean, the new eco-friendly paper  (Company news)

In partnership with Pedon comes the first 100% recyclable food-industry packaging made out of bean by-products.

Favini, the innovative Italian paper manufacturer, together with Pedon, based in Vicenza and now one of the leading players worldwide in grains, beans and seeds—united by their green philosophies and their dedication to the environment—have created Crush Bean, the first 100% recyclable paper made using bean by-products. This paper is designed for food-industry packaging and is certified for direct contact with foodstuffs.

The creation of this new ecological paper falls within the scope of the ethical project “Save the Waste”, which Pedon is promoting in order to support a culture of corporate responsibility from the manufacturer to the consumer. This project also ensures the use of non-GMO seeds grown by thousands of local farmers as part of the program to support farming and the economy.

Backed by hundreds of hours of research and fine-tuning, including 25 years of experience in the field of ecological paper, Favini proved to be the ideal partner for Pedon in launching this unique new product. Crush Bean comes from bean by-products, thereby reducing the use of virgin cellulose of tree origin by 15% and lowering greenhouse-gas emissions by 20%. The result is GMO-free, FSC-certified ecological packaging paper that features 30% post-consumption recycled fibre.

Crush Bean is Favini’s first paper to be suited for applications in which the packaging comes into direct food contact. Ecologically speaking, this avoids the need for double packaging, making for a truly environmentally friendly solution to reduce the environmental impact of packaging materials. The graphics on the packaging, developed by Lucaprint, have been printed using ecological ink, and the transparent window in PLA is made using plant-based by-products, so the total packaging is 100% recyclable.

The development of this new eco-friendly paper is the natural evolution of the experience Favini has gained through the production of Shiro Alga Carta, this paper is produced using excess algae found in endangered lagoon environments. Favini then extended their offer and developed Crush which is an extraordinarily innovative ecological paper made using various agro-industrial by-products and which has been met with unprecedented levels of success around the world in recent years.

“We are proud of what we have achieved together with Pedon and of having created an ecological packaging paper within such an ethical, socially beneficial project as ‘Save the Waste’. Obtaining such high-quality paper out of a by-product of limited value is a new form of upcycling, or creative reuse, that is perfectly in line with Favini’s green philosophy and is another step forward in the quest for alternative materials,” said Eugenio Eger, Managing Director Favini.

Favini posts first-half growth Revenues up 4.3% to 82 million euros  (Company news)

-Eger (photo), CEO: “Revenues continue to grow as performance also improves, driven by the excellent results achieved in the release sector. “
-EBITDA improves by a strong 23.9%. Graphics specialties and converting products performed well.

Favini, a global leader in the manufacture of innovative graphic specialties using natural raw materials (e.g. cellulose, algae, fruit and nuts), has published its financials for the first half of 2015.

The company continues to grow apace with revenues reaching 82 million euros, up 4.3% from the 78.6 million of 2014, while also confirming the group’s dedication to international markets with exports accounting for over 70% of total sales.

EBITDA has posted double-digit growth of 23.9%, going from the 7.2 million of 2014 to 8.9 million euros for the current year, equal to a margin of 10.8%. This growth has been driven by integration of the Arjowiggins business acquired by Favini at the end of 2013, which has helped neutralize the negative impact of the sharp increase in the cost of raw materials.

Graphic specialties and converting products, which combined to account for 54.8% of overall revenues, have also confirmed the strong performance posted in 2014.

Eugenio Eger, CEO of Favini, says: “Revenues continue to grow as overall performance also improves, driven by the excellent results achieved in the release sector. Global demand for these products remains strong on the whole, backed by greater dynamism in the automotive segment.“

Martin Haake signs the new Twill mailing by Favini  (Company news)

Twill, the elegant felt-marked paper, features a vintage interpretation of Venice by worldwide famous illustrator Martin Haake

Favini presents the new Twill mailing.
Characterized by a classical, linear design, Favini’s Twill paper is the perfect partner for sophisticated and elegant communication. The fine texture enhances the tactile experience on both sides of the paper and offers an ideal background for creative solutions.

Favini chose for their new mailing the skillful hands of worldwide famous illustrator Martin Haake, who turns ‘imperfection’ into his major strength. “I am especially touched by things that are imperfect and I like to create images that are also imperfect. If some of my illustrations get too perfect, I have to draw them again”, said the artist. Twill’s perfect linear texture contrasts well with the deliberately ‘imperfect’ style of Martin, who recreates Venice in a retro and poetic style.

Enclosed in the Twill mailing is a gift for the Favini designers and partners, an original mini poster with a vintage touch. Even the cover is a piece to keep and to use as inspiration: the blue tone of Twill Indigo creates an ideal background for the textures printed litho, Pantone 877 and for the orange silk screened areas.

Eugenio Eger (photo) is the newly appointed CEO of the world leader in the production of casting release and innovative graphic specialties made of natural raw materials

Eugenio Eger is the new Favini CEO, a company historically present in the paper market and world leader in the casting release business.

Born in 1968, Eger joined the company in 2002, holding the position of CFO and General Manager, after previously gaining important professional experience at both Benetton Group and KPMG.

“I am proud to accept this challenge. Over the years Favini has proven capable of successfully interpreting the structural changes occurring in its market, diversifying geographically and constantly investing in research and development, to offer its customers’ really revolutionary products and solutions. This has been endorsed by our results: in 2014, we closed with a positive growth (+17%), largely due to the contribution of our casting release division, whose products are used in the production of eco-leather for the fashion and luxury industry” said Eugenio Eger. “We will continue to invest in export markets, which are the most appealing for us: approx. 70% of our turnover is generated in non-European countries. The graphic specialties – for which Favini is renowned – remain as the feather in its cap; in particular, CRUSH and the other eco-friendly products that use agro-industrial residues within their production, continue to gain strength in market approval since their launch.”

Cartacrusca: Barilla paper straight from nature - Favini and Barilla create a high-quality paper...  (Company news)

... with a reduced environmental impact

Brought together by a keen sense of social and environmental responsibility, Favini, the innovative Italian paper manufacturer, and Barilla, one of Italy’s largest players in the food industry, have created Cartacrusca (Italian for ‘paper from bran’), the first paper to be made from bran residues that can no longer be used for human consumption. On the back of its experience with Crush, the unique range of ecological papers made from agro-industrial waste, Favini proved an ideal partner for Barilla, which has been looking for ways to make better use of its byproducts, and bran in particular.
The research and development teams of both Barilla and Favini worked side by side to select the most suitable byproduct and to then purify and mill the bran to make it work with paper fibre. The result is Cartacrusca. Instead of being wasted, the bran residues are given a new life as paper throughout Barilla.
Cartacrusca contains 17% of bran residues, replacing cellulose and filler materials to produce high-quality paper which is used for all corporate communications. The colour of Cartacrusca Barilla is taken from the bran which also feature as dots throughout the paper, giving it a really authentic feel. 2 grammages have been supplied - 250g, which is ideal for cards book covers, shopping bags and similar applications; and 100g for notebooks papers, letterhead and print publications.
Giacomo Canali, Packaging Research Manager for Barilla, said, “Barilla has written a new chapter of the Group’s history: the creation of Cartacrusca, a one-of-a-kind paper in that it features the use of bran, a byproduct of the milling of wheat. We have set out into uncharted waters, driven by a keen sense of social and environmental responsibility that we have always felt. Favini proved to be the ideal partner, able to create a custom-designed paper straight from nature, no waste or excess consumption. Cartacrusca was presented and used on October 15th for the panel of Barilla stakeholders, and we are planning on using it again for future projects.”
Michele Posocco, Brand Manager for Favini, said, “We are proud to have worked with Italy’s number-one food manufacturer and to have given life to a new sort of paper with an extremely low environmental impact. Our experience, which has already been demonstrated with Crush and the use of agro-industrial waste, has now broadened thanks to Cartacrusca Barilla.”

Favini says 'NO' to counterfeiting and presents Secure Suite, the only full range of ...  (Company news)

... technologically advanced security papers for brand protection

Through significant investment in research and development, Favini can now present a unique, complete range of solutions that reach the peak of excellence with Secure-Nanolock.
Favini, an Italian firm with a long history of innovation in paper manufacturing and a high level of expertise in the security-papers segment, presents Favini Secure Suite, the exclusive range of technologically advanced paper that features unique, effective anti-counterfeiting solutions for various needs and applications. Favini Secure Suite is designed to protect products from counterfeiting by adding security elements within the packaging or labeling that ensure the product’s authenticity.
In recent years, thanks to constant investment in research and the company’s extensive experience in security paper, Favini, has created an entire range of paper that focuses on protecting luxury products and brands. Solutions to protect against brand counterfeiting are widely used in numerous industries, including clothing, footwear, fashion accessories, jewelry and cosmetics, as well as in the food industry, in pharmaceuticals, IT and art.
Counterfeiting is greatly harmful to companies, consumers and society at large. For businesses, this damage comes in at least three forms. The first is financial in the form of reduced sales; the second is in brand image, which reflects on the quality of the original products as they become confused with the counterfeits; the third comes in the form of unfair competition given the lower costs incurred for research, development and manufacturing.
According to the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), global volumes of counterfeiting are on the rise and are expected to reach USD 1.7 trillion by 2015. Counterfeiting does not only harm businesses, but also society in general in that it increases organized crime, reduces tax revenues and has a negative impact on employment. Consumers are also exposed to health risks when using counterfeit products that contain toxic substances.
Favini’s Secure Suite is the solution to fight back against black-market counterfeits. The company’s wide range of Secure Suite security papers for brand protection features a variety of security elements that can be used with boxes, labels, cards and certificates, as well as on other support materials such as shopping bags, company communications and other documentation in order to guarantee a product’s authenticity. Secure Suite is a modular offering that includes security elements that can be used either individually or in combination for even greater protection.
Among the innovations Favini has to offer, Secure-Nanolock is the most technologically advanced, featuring a special hologram with incorporated code that measures less than 500 μm square and is made up of a holographic pattern that includes a hidden message that can be read by computer or smartphone. A specially designed app and software, along with a magnifying glass, are required to read and decode the hidden message. Secure-Nanolock technology includes the ability to incorporate a unique security feature in the hologram and provides a tracking system for both consumer goods and documents. Secure-Nanolock is currently the only security system of its kind and was made possible by the significant investment that Favini has dedicated to research.
Favini offers seven other solutions along side Secure-Nanolock. These include: Secure-Watermark, a personalized watermark that can be used to identify authentic documentation; Secure-Fibres, synthetic fibers within the paper that can only be seen under sunlight or UV light; Secure-Reagents, which is the treatment of paper with chemicals that change color when an attempt at counterfeiting is made; Secure-Dust, micro-elements included in the paper that can only be seen under a magnifying glass and special lighting; Secure-Check Marker, a verification system that Favini has designed that features a special marker used to quickly check authenticity; Secure-Zap, which ensures document authenticity by way of a special paper treatment that can only be seen with a laser pen or an acoustic device; and, finally, Secure-Skin, a technology that features a micro-embossing that contains custom logos, patterns and other micro-messages that can only be seen with at least 15x magnification and which can be applied to paper that has other security systems in order to provide even greater protection.

Favini presents CRUSH  (Company news)

The first and only range of ecological paper made from a variety of organic materials: corn, citrus fruit, kiwi fruit, olives, almonds, hazelnuts and coffee beans all become extraordinary paper in unique and high fashion colours inspired by nature.
Favini was arriving at Luxepack 2012 with a big bang – or perhaps we mean squeeze - for the launch of CRUSH, a completely new paper dedicated to the packaging industry.
CRUSH stands apart from the market as being the first and only range paper made with by-products from organic products replacing as much as 15% of traditional wood pulps.
After hundreds of hours of research and fine tuning, Favini has managed to transform process residues from corn, citrus and kiwi fruits, olives, almonds, hazelnuts and coffee beans into extraordinary paper in high fashion colours inspired by nature – and each with a distinct touch created by the differences between the types of material.
CRUSH brings new life to residues from organic products that would normally be processed as fillers in animal food and fertilizers or simply dumped in landfill. Using Favini’s unique patented capabilities these by-products are reborn as a new raw material for making high quality paper. At a time of increasing resource scarcity, using these materials relieves pressure on forest resources and gives them an extended life of up to five time - this being the typical number of times a high quality paper is recycled.
In line with Favini’s commitment to support the environment, this new paper is FSC certified, made with 100% green energy (the electricity is generated in Favini ’s own hydroelectric plant) and contains 30% post-consumer recycled fibre.
Development of this new range of ecological paper is the natural progression of Favini’s know how from the production of Shiro Alga Carta, the patented paper that Favini manufactures using the excess seaweed growing in endangered lagoon environments.
For brand owners, packaging a product using CRUSH provides a new approach to the increasingly eco sensitive consumer, with a special story combining with an on trend fashion pallet and a set of papers with unique touch. For sophisticated and luxurious packaging, Crush gives real stand out power.
Rest assured that CRUSH also does the simple things well - optimal levels of performance in printing and other processes, making CRUSH ideal for various applications - shopping bags, labels, packaging, and any variety of creative communications.
CRUSH comes in seven colors associated with each of the seven raw materials: Corn, Citrus, Kiwi, Olive, Almond, Hazelnut and Coffee. There are 4 grammages optimised for packaging – 120, 200, 250, 350.
The production process and the product are protected by European patent. In addition to the items offered in the range, Favini is ready to collaborate with anybody who wishes to create a paper from their unusual materials.
