Fujifilm is working to develop a new food-safe ink for its digital Jet Press 720S, which will allow it to print on primary food packaging. This new low migration ink is designed to comply with the more stringent regulations for primary food contact, such as Swiss Ordinance 817.023.21 and European Commission Regulation 1935/2004. These regulations limit the amount of many of the chemicals used in any given ink, such as glycerine. This ink should be available later this year.
