Incredible Innovation


After considerable effort and research, Iwata Label succeeded in producing a color photo label. Since then, as a pioneer of tack labels (pressure-sensitive labels), Iwata Label has greatly contributed to sales promotion and cost reduction.


Iwata entered the pharmaceutical-label market in 1977 by launching roll tack labels that meet GMP.


Early in the 90s, we developed "LPE label", which has both light-protection and shockproof functions. With this label, we established, so called, "functional label" area.


Since then, Iwata has been providing highly value-added labels, such as a shrink tack label which is heat-shrunk around a container and has tamper evident function, or a peel-off label that reduces medication errors by peeling off a part of the label and reattach it to a patient's medical chart.

We keep our focus on the pharmaceutical area, and through our business, Iwata commits to make a social contribution.

Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) is a system for ensuring that products (food, biological, pharmaceutical and similar products) are consistently produced and controlled according to quality standards.
