Delhi-NCR Sonipat-based Millennium Cans & Containers is a leading manufacturer and supplier of a wide range of composite cans, paper tubes, tin cans, and rigid boxes fabricated using high-grade raw materials. Established in 1984, the company manufactures decorative and fancy tin cans for watch packaging, the food industry, and other segments. It also makes composite boxes, paper cans, and trays for dry products and brands such as Timex, Titan, Organic India, Chaayos, and Danima Cookies.

The company has two units, of which the first is Shiv Pooja Metal, started by Narendra Mittal and is now run by one of the current partners, Amit Mittal and Ankush Mittal. This plant produces tin cans. The second unit is Millenium Cans & Containers, run by partners Amit Gupta and Amit Mittal, which makes rigid and composite boxes.

Millenium Cans & Containers has covered various segments till now

Millenium Cans & Containers has an in-house team for printing on tins using an offset single-color Indian-made machine. Director Amit Gupta, speaking about his company and its role in the market, said, “My father, Narendra Mittal, initially started the tin work, and now we are expanding the company by dealing in decorative cans and rigid boxes. Our products are recyclable and eco-friendly. We don’t deal in plastic, everything is made of paper, and the kraft paper used for making the boxes are purchased from exporters. We provide our services to customers in almost all the sectors, such as food, pharma, agriculture, and several others. In agriculture, pesticides are packed in our tins. Beverage makers like White & Blue use our tin cans. Right now, as a supplier of cans, we are directly only exporting to Sri Lanka and Nepal but to other markets through a mediator. The company only has a 25% market share for decorative cans.”

Gupta concluded our conversation by commenting on the exhibition, and the industry said “Exhibitions are a great way to approach people who we couldn’t approach directly, and here in PackPlus Delhi 2022, we have received a good response. Packaging has huge growth and is an excellent way to sell your products. One of our customers said that due to the packaging their products are increasing in demand and they have sold unexpected numbers of their products. Even the owners of White & Blue commented similarly, saying that their company has grown considerably in the last two years (the Covid period) due to the packaging.”

Nevertheless, Millenium Cans & Containers have no expansion plans currently and concentrating on maintaining the quality of composite cans. Its future plans are entirely market-dependent. 

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.
