Ineos Styrolution, in styrenics, and Pal Packaging, manufacturer and distributor of food packaging and foodservice products, announced recently to partner on styrenics based sustainable food contact applications. Pal Packaging now incorporates the new mechanically recycled Styrolution PS Eco, a 100% recycled polystyrene, in new food packaging solutions.

Pal Packaging is a division of Greece based Palamidis SA corporation. They are an innovative and reliable supplier of packers, processors and supermarkets across Europe. After successful trials with the new recycled material provided by Ineos Styrolution, the company was impressed with the ease of processing and the quality of the final product.

Konstantinos Roumpos, Quality and R&D manager at Palamidis comments, “Ineos Styrolution made it a seamless transition for us to offer our customers a sustainable packaging solution. We are eager to go ahead with sustainable packaging solutions starting with poultry and mushroom packaging.”

Louie Mackee, Standard Business Project specialist at Ineos Styrolution adds, “At Ineos Styrolution, we are excited working with Pal Packaging. The company is committed to providing high-quality products and is dedicated to new sustainable solutions. In fact, our two companies share the same vision in terms of sustainability and innovation.”

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.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
