Compostable packaging solutions

Flexible packaging specialist Parkside has added a sustainability portfolio to its offering in the Asia Pacific region to address new consumer trends emerging in the market.

The introduction of the new Parkside products boosts the recyclability of the company’s existing range of flexible packaging designs, which is used across a wide range of markets, including food and drink. The new range also incorporates the company’s award-winning collection of compostable packaging solutions, Park2Nature.

General Manager of Parkside Asia, Paula Birch, commented: “We are acutely aware of the shifting sustainability awareness of consumers in this region, and it’s vital that we are prepared to help brands adapt to this change in thinking.”

“It’s great to see the consumer now focusing on the importance of protecting the environment and reducing their dependence on single-use plastics. However, we must understand that packaging in all formats and materials is sustainable – it protects and preserves goods, minimizing waste and energy, and ultimately protects the environment from harmful product waste.”  

Parkside’s range comprises three variants

The new sustainable packaging portfolio from Parkside comprises three variations of its Recoflex technology; a high barrier, single polymer laminate, ideal for recycling processes, which can be manufactured with paper, polypropylene (PP), or polyethylene (PE). Recoflex is suitable for various packaging applications, including pouches and flow wraps.

The range also contains the company’s leading Parkscribe reclose lidding films manufactured from >30% recycled polyethylene terephthalate (RPET). Suitable for use on PET trays, including fresh and cooked meats, fruit, and vegetables, this innovative solution creates a complete single polymer PET pack, ideal for recycling, and reduces waste in the home with its reclose design.

Paula added: “By strengthening the market’s push towards a circular economy, we can now produce a range of flexible packaging alternatives for brands that can be used in an array of applications where extended shelf-life through high barrier performance, and in some cases resealability, are essential.”

 

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.
