Faridabad-based Shubham Flexible Packaging Machines organized a live demonstration of its newly launched aseptic liquid packaging machine, the SPM Aseptica 24000, at IntraPac 2024.

Rishab Sharma, executive director of Shubham Flexible Packaging Machines said, “Although we had multitrack and collar-type packaging machines in our portfolio, after witnessing the surge in demand for aseptic liquid packaging in India, we launched our own series in this segment in 2022.”

Depending upon packaging volume, the machine can run at a speed ranging from 12000-24000 packs per hour. It offers packaging volumes of 90ml, 125ml, 150ml, 180ml, 200ml, 250ml and 1000ml. Sharma said, “The aseptic liquid packaging machines offer packaging for various liquid products such as milk, cream, liquor, juices, and other viscous liquid products.”

Shubham Flexible Packaging Machines also has horizontal form-fill and seal (HFFS) and vertical form-fill and seal (VFFS) machines, both collar-type and multi-track, which are widely used in the industry for pouches or sachets.

Giving an insight into the sachet industry, Sharma said in India, sachets are used to sell everything — from small volumes of shampoo or conditioner to ketchup and other condiments. “It gives a good business for brands due to their affordability.”

The company has a global presence in more than 40 companies worldwide with 90% of its market being exports. ITC, Tops, and Haldiram’s are some of the major Indian clients of Shubham Flexible Packaging Machines.

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.
