Delhi-based Asian Organics – a manufacturer and supplier of high-grade pigment paste, pigment color paste, pigment textiles, fluorescent pigment inks, water-based inks, and flexography inks – showcased its products at the IntraPac show. The Delhi-based provider is focusing on sustainable packaging — trying to decrease the carbon footprint in inks with water-based solutions.

According to Akshay Saxena, managing director of Asian Organics, the company provides full consultation to manufacturers of flexible packaging (using PVC or LDPE) or paper packaging. “We are a one-stop solution for all water-based inks and coatings. We advocate the use of water-based inks instead of solvent-based as a more sustainable approach,” Mishra says.

Asian Organics has two factories to manufacture its inks and coatings — one in Delhi’s Bawana industrial area and another in Haryana. The Rohini-headquartered company, which has an annual turnover of Rs 25 crore, is a pan-India provider. It also supplies to Nepal, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka.

Saxena said, “Our range makes us the only provider in Punjab, Haryana, and Delhi at an affordable price. IntraPac is quite relevant for us as we can explore many more companies and look for solutions. Most importantly, brand positioning was our sole objective in participating in the show. We are looking forward to many more editions.”  

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.
