Working with biodegradable capsulesSpreafico’s technology for flavouring of coffeeThe Lecco-based Spreafico specializes in the design, production and marketing of automated machines for capsule filling, offering a portfolio of solutions that are suitable not only for the packaging of coffee, but also instant soluble beverages such as tea, chamomile, chocolate, milk, barley, cappuccino and ginseng. The technological innovation offered by Spreafico for the flavoring of coffee is based on micrometric drop dosing with diaphragm valves, activated by a control unit with microprocessor, which simplifies the setting of the parameters for dose and dosing timeThe market of coffee in portions is now dominated by capsules, which in the last few years have revolutionized the way we drink coffee, making it even more widespread and consumed. Capsules are an optimal packaging solution, as they allow for a long shelf-life and, at the same time, a great aroma and taste of the product. The capsule solution, however, is not exclusive to the coffee industry, it lends itself to the packaging of a wide range of beverages, soluble and non-soluble, that are experiencing a major increase in their market share, especially in the vending industry.

Customized solutions for instant products
To accommodate market requests and to be able to offer customized machines to its clientele, Spreafico constantly invests in the development of technologically advanced solutions. Specifically, for the packaging of instant and leaf products, for instance, the tea that can be purchased from vending machines, Spreafico has designed a packaging system that guarantees both precision in the weighing and dosing stages (to ensure reduced wastage of a product) and total cleanliness. Such products, in fact, tend to stain the machine in the capsule filling stage, but due to the depression suction system developed by Spreafico, the machine can effectively eliminate all the impalpable residue in order to guarantee maximum cleanliness of the workplace. Whatever the content, Spreafico machines can work with a wide range of capsules, including compostable and biodegradable capsules.

As for the coffee industry, Spreafico has adopted a special technological innovation for the flavouring of the product, following the latest trends of the market that is seeing a widespread appearance of new and  exotic flavours and aromas. The solution offered by Spreafico is based on micrometric drop dosing with diaphragm valves, activated by a control unit with microprocessor, which simplifies the setting of the parameters for dose and dosing time. Depending on the number of tracks on the filling machines, one or more dosing valves are installed, while the product is placed in a cartridge type tank on the outside of the machine. This solution can be applied on any Spreafico system, including the ones already in the market.

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.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
