VeriPack Solutions India, part of the Italian Ilpra Group, is a manufacturer of machines for food and non-food packaging since 1989. Its wide range of niche packaging machines and technologies are designed to maximize the preservation of perishable products.

The company’s stainless steel thermoforming machines are used for food and non-food packaging that meets the needs of small, medium, and large production runs, with quick format changes. These are used for packaging fresh and processed meat, cheeses, fresh pasta, sandwiches, fish, bread, and bakery products. 

The company specializes in modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) for vacuum and skin packs that are used to enhance the shelf life of food products. At the ProPak India trade show in New Delhi, we met Rajesh Ranveria, who is responsible for managing technical sales and services at the Veripack in India where it showcased ready-to-eat packaged foods using MAP formats. 

VeriPack believes in sharing packaging ideas

Ranveria said this was the company’s first time at the ProPak India show, one of the first held in the country after the Covid-19 pandemic. “Before the event, we didn’t expect the footfall that we saw in all the three days of the exhibition. We are getting a good response from our customers and have received many queries from them related to packaging of food products.”

VeriPack has dedicated itself to the promotion and implementation of modified atmosphere packaging and giving the right solution to segments like the producers of ethnic Indian sweets. Today, everybody is looking for a good type of packaging, our focus is to help our customers with the ideas of how to pack food products and protect them from the oxygen and moisture present in the atmosphere,” he said.

He concluded our conversation by saying, “No doubt, the packaging industry is doing extremely well in the market, but the thing that is still lacking in the industry is the sharing and wider spread of  packing ideas and knowledge. More knowledge sharing about the kinds of materials that are being used for packaging can create a healthy environment for brand owners, technology suppliers and consumers. This broadening of knowledge and information will help save food and also to maintain the healthiest and most hygienic practices right up to the consumer.”

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.
