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.
