Noida-based Veekay Industries exhibited its water-based adhesives, lamination, emulsion, and coatings for industrial applications such as paper, textile, footwear, paint, printing, and packaging at PrintPack India 2022. It highlighted paper-based products such as paper cups, muffin pouches, paper plates, paper straws, and cutlery pouches coatings at the event.

The metalized film coating for gutkha pouches is also manufactured by the company but was not highlighted at the event. “The company’s products are all FDA approved by the SGS lab, and the products will not harm the environment or body,” said Amit Kumar Singla, director of Veekay Industries.

The company produces moisture barrier paper, which protects paper straws from not diluting in any drink, such as cold drinks or coffee. It also makes coatings for paper straws, which are now in high demand in the market. “The paper straw tensile strength depends on the coating and the gsm of the paper. If we take lower GSM paper, it will dilute in just 15-20 minutes, while the high GSM paper ranging will protect the straw and stand for around 48-72 hours. Furthermore, if we take even high GSM papers, the straw can stand for more than 72 hours,” said Singla.

“Everyone today wants recyclable, sustainable, and environmentally friendly things. Many enterprises that make paper bags are represented at this expo. We provide eco-friendly adhesives that align with the current trend for pasting these also,” he added.

At PrintPack, the company went through a great show experience and got a chance to meet the people after a long gap from the Covid-19. “Many printers and coaters approached our stand with many solid inquiries,” he concluded.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
