After its recent success with Triveni Engineering for the packing of its premium crystal sugar, UFlex has come up with a three-layered 3D pouch with registered metallization for their premium brown sugar. The pack’s structure is made of PET / Window MET PET and NAT PE. Its structure provides a metallic sheen look to the pack while allowing consumers to see the packed content that helps them make an instant buying decision. Owing to its 3D structure, the brand leverages on pack’s standability at the base, and a side gusset that positions its premium brown sugar packs uniquely on the retail shelves.

Conventionally, edible oil has been packed in either a regular pouch or a rigid bottle. Such packaging formats often offer limited differentiation on the shelves for purchase as well as its use that sometimes could be quite cumbersome with oil spilling while pouring it. This development made by UFlex for BB Royal Organic Edible Oil is a unique offering for edible oil packaging applications in which the structure is made of PET/BON/PE with a spout for easy pour experience. This structure has emerged as a viable solution for packaging edible oil, and successfully replaces the need for rigid containers. Beyond convenience and striking aesthetics, its 3-ply packaging structure offers good standability that creates a unique shelf appeal on the retail shelves. The look of the pack is achieved through a profiled format.

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.
