The Food Processing & Packaging Exposyum 2015 (FPPE) focusses on adequate solutions that match the needs of local food producers. The third edition of this annual event will take place at the Kenyatta International Conference Center(KICC) in Nairobi, Kenya, from 3
to 5 November 2015. Enterprises from ten nations will be showcasing their solutions and products at the event. Organized by Messe Düsseldorf, the exhibition will be accompanied by a three day conference with the theme of save food playing an important role.

The FPPE is a special type of event that combines a symposium with an exhibition. Their requirements and the proposals made by suppliers to meet them, as well as policies and framework conditions, are the core elements of the symposium. Government and trade association topics will head the agenda at the beginning of the three-day programme, while the second day will be devoted mainly to the topic of food losses. This part of the programme will be organized by the partners of the Save Food Initiative, the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and Messe Düsseldorf.

Adequate processing and packaging solutions are key infighting food losses, particularly in the sub-Saharan countries where these losses are often caused by the lack of suitable means to process, store and transport harvested produce. For this reason, the third and
last day of the symposium will concentrate on technology and knowledge transfer in these areas. For the first time there will be a German national pavilion at the FPPE with 18 participating exhibitors as well as a joint presentation by the aluminium foil industry with five contributing companies. Last year’s edition of the FPPE drew more than 1,000 visitors from Kenya and the neighbouring East African states

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.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
