Whether you are checking dye baths for consistent strength or correcting for metametric effects of different weaves in your supply chain, Lovibond® colour systems can help you communicate and control colour throughout the design and manufacturing process through to retail. We can help with visual colour assessment or instrumental colour measurement. Controlling for illuminants, observer and reporting in any one of a number of colour communication “spaces”, Lovibond® help take the guesswork out of colour management.

More than just matching
The process of managing product appearance from concept, design, sample through to contracting and retail is reliant upon consistent communication of specifications.

A Distinguished History in Food and Drink
Lovibond® has its origins in the brewing industry and we have been measuring colour since 1880. Joseph Lovibond was the first person in the world to develop a practical colorimeter to ensure the high quality of his beer. He was the originator of the Lovibond® scale. We still use the scale as our company logo today. Still a family owned business but now global, at Lovibond® we value our heritage.
