Chinese company, Xiaoyangren, long famous for its milk drinks, has recently launched a sports drink! With the slogan “The sight of Xiaoyangren Miaolian, our first feeling of love!” and it’s sour, yet sweet taste, it is an iconic drink that resonates across several generations. To make an emotional connection with Generation Z, Xiaoyangren has launched its innovative Cool Sports drink. According to the company, the drink is aimed at those who work hard, love sports, and follow fashion.

Smart Packaging!

The dynamically shaped bottle, with Aptar’s sports closure, reflects a youthful attitude towards life – a love for play, adventure, and sports. With a claimed novel design, this sports closure has dual wings on the top, symbolizing vitality and energy, and the clam-shell cap can be flipped open with one hand, ideal when playing sports, and making it easy to drink on-the-go. Simplisqueeze, Aptar’s flow control silicon valve, is smartly designed into the spout to avoid leaking, even when the closure is open – making it convenient and hygienic.

Generation Z has become an indispensable consumer group, with the evolution of national brands requiring a constant dialogue with this generation. Emotional identification can be achieved by using product differentiation to break the “dimension wall” between brands and consumers.

Aptar Food and Beverage is a part of AptarGroup and a leader in a broad range of food protection and proprietary active packaging systems for seafood and fresh-cut fruits and vegetables. The company is headquartered in Crystal Lake, Illinois and has 14,000 employees in 20 countries, including India (with manufacturing plants at Mumbai and Hyderabad).

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.
