The first guest of the day was Damian Smyth from Label Makers Group, who joined Lindy to discuss sustainable labels.

Kim Berry was later joined by chocolatier Santiago Cuyugan from Mamecoca, to talk about natural food colourings in chocolate, and to discuss his creation on display on the show floor: an entirely edible chocolate garden made using Oterra’s natural colours.

Trimatt Systems founder Matt Johnson joined the podcast later in the day to discuss digital printing on sustainable packaging, and to bring the news of the successful launch of Trimatt's new CupPro600, a unique to the world machine designed to print food grade ink onto paper cups, ideal for SMEs.
