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.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are grown similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans and to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
