India’s largest IMFL maker, Radico Khaitan, has launched its whisky brand Triple Eight in an iconic pack imbibing foil stamping feature manufactured by UFlex-Asepto. Triple Eight whisky aseptic packs launched in Karnataka is the outcome of a packaging partnership between both companies to elevate the packaging standards for the IMFL category products and embellish the packs aesthetically superior unique design blends for brand differentiation.

Ashwani Sharma commented on triple eight packaging

“We are extremely proud to have associated with Radico Khaitan, which is known for quality blended whisky. The packaging will certainly accentuate its class to create an aspiration reach for its customers. While differentiation through unique packaging experience has always been Asepto’s key focus, the steal is the anti-counterfeit quality that is pertinent to prevent the consumption of adulterated liquor—a grave concern for the liquor makers,” Ashwani Kumar Sharma, President & CEO, UFlex-Asepto, said.

Amar Sinha, Chief Operating Officer, Radico Khaitan, said, “We are extremely happy with the results of this association. This is, in fact, the first time that an alcoholic beverage company has ventured into the foil stamping effects in the aseptic packaging space.”

Triple Eight is a premium whisky, and to cater to the growing demand in Karnataka; it is now made available in 90ml and 180ml sizes. The six-layered aseptic packaging creates room for customers’ experience to get a great taste of classic blended whiskey in the above price range bracket. The premium whisky maker has again gone with the names around their signature style with the number ‘8’.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
