Mumbai-headquartered Parksons Packaging showcased and promoted its end-to-end solution for gable top packaging at the recently concluded India International Dairy Expo (IIDE) 2019 that was held in Mumbai from 3-5 April at the Bombay Exhibition Centre.

Marketed under the brand name ParkPak, the gable top cartons are mainly used for packing items such as milk, yoghurt, liquid eggs, soup and syrups, among others. These cartons can also be used to pack dry products like sugar, cereals, pet food, detergents and fertilizers, to name a few. Made of recyclable virgin paper boards, the name gable top comes from the fold at the top which looks like the gable end of a house. Originally designed to pack fresh pasteurized milk, this became the standard packaging in many countries for fresh milk and juice.

Parksons, which has been one of the leaders in the folding carton segment, ventured into gable top carton segment about five years ago. The gable top cartons under the ParkPak brand name are manufactured at Parksons’ Chakan plant near Pune.

“We are India’s first company to offer gable top carton solution. Our customers are some of the biggest producers of dairy products in India,” says Pavan Kumar Singh, general manager – Liquid Packaging Business of Parksons Packaging.

ParkPak gable top cartons are used to pack premium products such as A2 and native milk and alkaline water.

“We are also working on gable top carton solutions to pack regular water, regular milk and detergents. In the last few years we have seen a very good response to the gable top cartons mainly because of the environmentally friendly nature of the packaging,” adds Singh.

Gable top cartons are a superior alternative to many traditional packaging solutions and have several advantages such as better branding, convenience of transportation, storage and use and also they are environment friendly, Singh argues.

Nimco is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of gable top carton packaging and filling machines. It has a modern manufacturing facility in Crystal Lake in the US state of Illinois.

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 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.
