Taghleef Industries has announced that it will be presenting new sustainable film solutions at Labelexpo Europe 2019. Nativia D813 is the first bio-based and biodegradable I-IML film in the market and complements Taghleef’s wide range of IML BoPP films. This polylactic acid (PLA) film is designed to run on reel-to-sheet offset printing machines, achieving good printing speed and better ink adhesion. These features make Nativia D813 a unique film that meets the growing demand for bioplastic-based containers that can be decorated with I-IML technology.

Another film that meets the principles of Circular Economy is the ultra-clear floatable Shape360 TDS. This low-density TD shrink sleeve label film minimizes the impact on PET recycling systems and reduces the weight of the label. The exceptional shrink curve guarantees up to 65% shrinkage, offering the freedom to fully decorate containers in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, and the potential for 360° eye-catching label graphics.

At Labelexpo Europe 2019, Taghleef will also share programs that support sustainability and the circular economy, including the use of post-consumer recycled (PCR) content and non-fossil raw material sources. Taghleef expects customers, brand owners, retailers and all stakeholders in the value chain to join in the discussion on the future of plastic packaging.

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.
