Stelda, a Mumbai-based provider of innovative packaging solutions, will showcase its latest innovation AR 500 GT, an all-random case packaging system, at Interpack 2023 in Düsseldorf, Germany.

Interpack 2023 will bring together the biggest names in the packaging industry and provide a platform for companies to showcase their latest products and innovations. At Stand D15 in Hall 11, Stelda will display packaging solutions that will help brands reduce the losses incurred due to pilferage and damages during storage and transit. They will also help build on the brands’ sustainability agenda.

“We are thrilled to be a part of Interpack 2023, and we feel our solutions will change the way packaging is perceived in the supply chain industry,” said Pallippuram Sajith, MD at Stelda. “We are on a mission to make shipper carton packaging stronger, secure, sustainable and cost-effective. Our products solve industry-wide challenges in shipper carton packaging; offering higher productivity, better strength against damages, security against pilferage, and importantly more sustainability.”

Stelda’s case packaging solutions help optimize logistics. Its patented ‘tamper evident sealing’ works as a deterrent to pilferage. The machines use hot-melt glue for case sealing, eliminating BOPP tapes, straps and stretch films. Stelda’s way of sealing leads to enhanced box strength and provides greater product protection. All of this help reduce the overall cost of packaging.

Stelda is part of the Impel-Bindwel group, which has more than three decades of experience and understanding of hot-glue adhesive technology. They have strong partners such as Nordson and Henkel. The group takes strategic inspiration from its director Kai Buntemeyer (erstwhile CEO and managing partner of Kolbus). A strong advocate of responsible packaging solutions, Kai Buntemeyer said, “There are three categories of demands on packaging – Safety, Economy and Efficient Communication. Economy and sustainability become one and the same once ecological costs such as carbon footprint or safe disposal are internalized.” 

“Stelda is committed to delivering on eliminating unnecessary wastage. Through the personalized offering of ‘Stelda trials’, Stelda has worked closely with customers to eliminate plastic tapes, and straps and also optimize the corrugate grade and thickness used in shipper cartons. The push on delivering savings by Indian customers will make Stelda work hard to produce solutions relevant to many developing economies,” added Sadashiv Nayak (ex-CEO of India’s largest hypermarket chain Big Bazaar), and now director at Stelda.  

Stelda is excited to have the opportunity to connect with potential clients and partners at Interpack 2023 and to showcase their latest innovations and its 4S promise of safety-security-savings and sustainability.

Stelda invites all visitors to Interpack 2023 to come and visit Stall D15 in Hall 11 to learn more about their innovative packaging solutions. On display will be the case sealing system that reads a QR code on the shipper carton and sets the machine.

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 grown 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 and to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
