MDH’s spice processing and packaging operation include in-house milling and grinding of spices and packaging production to maintain consistency, freshness and to prevent any type of tampering or counterfeiting. As part of its in-house packaging operations, it uses machines. For this, it has acquired many carton packaging machines from equipment manufacturers such as Hitachi, KGK, Videojet, Domino, Pakona, Xprt and Valco Melton. However, over the years for glueing and sealing its cartons, the company has installed more than 45 Valco Melton machines across all its plants.  

MDH’s purchase manager says that the company has confidence in Valco Melton’s equipment. “Valco Melton provides easy to handle machines with their speedy servicing and repairing  of any problem so that the workers can work quickly and efficiently.”  

Valco Melton is specialized in the design and manufacture of adhesive dispensing and quality assurance equipment for end of line packaging with their user-friendly keypad or touch screen pattern controllers. Valco melton’s quality assurance systems prevent defective products from reaching the customers. With good production speed and accuracy, Valco melton helps augment the carton packaging production of MDH. These are used in the primary cartons for products such as spices and for shipping corrugated cartons where gluing has become the preferred method both for constructing cartons and for sealing them.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling.
