At the 7th Speciality Films and Flexible Packaging Global Summit 2018, that took place from 4-5 September at Grand Hyatt, Mumbai, Michelman introduced attendees to the Michelman Innovation Centre for Coatings (MICC) and its mission to develop integrated solutions that help the packaging value chain comply with Plastic Waste Management and other, ever-intensifying environmental regulations.

“At the MICC, we provide the packaging industry with all the tools necessary to innovate in a dynamic and evolving flexible packaging market” said Shailesh Nema, vice president and managing director at Michelman India. “In addition, we are currently helping companies comply with plastic waste management and other regulations by offering coating innovations that allow for mono-material package applications.”

Sustainable packaging incubator

The MICC is located at Michelman India’s Mumbai offices. It is a sustainable packaging incubator. It is strategically designed to serve the needs of India and its surrounding markets to allow for fast, efficient development of sustainable packaging solutions. In addition, through a combination of dedicated materials and application labs; ample opportunity for collaborative innovation; and an infusion of water-based technology; all members of the packaging value chain have access to the tools needed to achieve innovative and sustainable solutions for the natural environment and their business.

Furthermore, with significant investments in world-class talent, state-of-the-art equipment for testing and prototyping, along with proven, water-based technologies, the MICC has helped companies produce compliant solutions for numerous packaging applications including edible oils, frozen and refrigerated foods, lightweight dry foods, and many other mono-material applications.

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.
