New Delhi based SOLO, one of India’s leading premium stationery brands has launched- TopCare, a product line dedicated to healthy and sustainable food packaging and cooking, starting with food wrapping and baking and cooking paper. After years of research, SOLO introduced TopCare to end the rampant use of fatal aluminum foils, which leaches into our bodies. The company states that all products fulfill the two core tenets of TopCare – health and sustainability.

Solo TopCare claims that its products natural, organic, and 100% food healthy. The products are made out of the wood pulp, promises safe disposal with products being biodegradable, recyclable, and compostable, providing TopCare to Mother Nature. The food packed in the paper remains fresh and will not have any hazardous effects on the body. All products are certified as per American, European, and Indian food safety standards.

Ashutosh Gupta, director for Filex Systems, said, “SOLO TopCare plans to offer both the HORECA and the end consumer. TopCare acknowledges that consumers are becoming more conscious about their purchasing decisions because of the increasing awareness about health hazards and the growing concern for the environment, further making the brand take a better tomorrow through its natural and organic products.

Adoption of TopCare will be a small step towards making purchasing decisions radically that will not hamper the environment and health.”

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.
