Greencore provides customized honeycomb packaging solutions in India. With a presence in Bhiwadi, Jodhpur, Jaipur, New Delhi, Faridabad, Mumbai, Bengaluru and Saudi Arabia, the paper honeycomb manufacturer showcased its eco-friendly and recyclable product range at the Intrapac exhibition in Greater Noida’s India Expo Centre in March.

With exports making up 90% of the company’s production, Greencore supplies paper honeycomb to textile, automotive, and handicraft companies. At the IntraPac exhibition, the company showcased its products for marble and mirror packaging and display racks, separators, boxes, lamp packaging and chairs, which are known for their strength despite being lightweight.

The reduced weight of the packaging makes it ideal for shipping and transportation purposes, said Rajesh Yadav from Greencore’s marketing and sales division. He said the packaging material is made from renewable materials such as paper and cardboard, which makes it sustainable.

Honeycomb has a high strength-to-weight ratio, which provides strength and durability to the packaging by enhancing its ability to withstand shock and vibrations during shipping and transportation. The company’s anti-bacterial products resist contamination due to moisture and humidity.

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.
