Mondi has recently received two ScanStar awards and two Obal Roku awards, recognizing its expertise in automotive, eCommerce, and FMCG packaging solutions. Mondi Ansbach, Germany, developed the double ScanStar award-winning transportation packaging solutions for Volvo. The team works closely with its automotive industry customers to create value-added corrugated solutions that protect heavy-duty goods such as brake boosters and headlamps while improving processes and logistics, it said. The ScanStar jury especially highlighted these factors — cost-effectiveness, sustainability, stability, and improvement in work ergonomics.

“Our stakeholders at the plant are very pleased with this packaging concept when it comes to usability and quality,” explained Paulo Soeiro, packaging engineer at Volvo Cars, about Mondi’s brake booster solution.

At this year’s Obul Roka awards, Mondi Bupak, Czech Republic, won in the Technology and Process category with its special edition sparkling wine box for Bohemia Sekt, which stood out due to the imaginative design and high printability capabilities of the Bupak plant. Mondi’s EnvelopeMailer won the eCommerce category, giving customers a fully recyclable alternative to polyethylene bags and polyethylene-coated products when shipping eCommerce goods.

Armand Schoonbrood, chief operating officer – Corrugated Solutions at Mondi, said, “We believe in packaging that is sustainable by design. Our designers have an innovation mind-set that sets standards in the packaging market. I am proud of the recognition of our innovative products and commitment to service and quality is receiving.”

All four awards qualify for the international WorldStar awards run by the World Packaging Organization (WPO). The closing date for entries is in October, and the results will be announced by 15 December.

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 growing 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 to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
