Indiapack/pacprocess 2017 gets underway

Inaugural ceremony of Indiapack/pacprocess 2017

Messe Dusseldorf along with the Indian Institute of Packaging has jointly organized the Indiapack/pacprocess 2017 at Pragati Maidan in New Delhi that started off this morning with an inaugural ceremony. Thomas Schlitt, managing director of Messe Dusseldorf and Subodh Gupta, managing director of Gerresheimer, were among the few who took center-stage at the event.

The first day of the event drew a notable number of visitors and with a total of 109 exhibitors from India and abroad, the event looks quite promising. The footfall at the stands of some of the larger companies and institutions such as Uflex and the Indian Institute of Packaging looks phenomenal.

“We wanted to organize the event on a large scale wherein exhibitors from various parts of the country could come under one roof to provide packaging solutions to the market,” said Schlitt. The idea is also to provide a platform for showcasing the latest technology, bring the entire industry on an exhibiting platform and augment knowledge sharing.

The technology showcased in the exhibition is quite unique and at par with the latest technology available in the international packaging market. Almost every exhibitor has come up with unique packaging solutions. Shrinath Rotopack, for example, is showing several unique packaging solutions for food and beverage products. These including a shaped pouch, high barrier films for vacuum packaging and thermoforming, easy peel pouch and lidding films and spout pouches that provide creative packaging solutions for beverages.

The event is packed with brands and companies providing creative packaging solutions for the food and beverage industry in India. Stay tuned for further updates on the 3-day event that goes on till Saturday. An accompanying packaging research conclave is being held in parallel to the event at the Eros Hotel in Nehru place.

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 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.
