Sivakasi-based Suri Graphix has showcased its paper and paperboard-based packaging solutions at the ProPak India 2022, being held in Bengaluru from 21-23 September. The company prints and converts monocartons, paper bags, paper bowls, food boxes, lunch boxes, ice cream boxes, and tag cards. It supplies these packaging solutions to customers based mainly in the three southern states of Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, and Kerala. 

“At ProPak, we are showing our complete range of solutions. Our major customers are in the food industry, about 60% of our business comes from this segment. We have started focusing on compostable packaging solutions. Right now, most of our solutions are PE coated, but there is a gradual increase in demand for sustainable solutions from our customers. The share, though, is still pretty small, mainly because of the high prices of fully compostable boxes and cartons. We have a very strong product development department,” says A Krishna, owner of Suri Graphix.

At its manufacturing unit, Suri Graphix operates a slew of machines. It has a Heidelberg 5-color offset press, Bobst Novacut 3.0 die cutter, Eterna folder gluer, Zund sample maker, UV varnish coating machine, foil stamping machine, rigid box maker, carton erecting machine, paper bowl making machine, window patching machine, and a paper bag making machine. The company converts about 100 tons of paper and paperboard every month.

Bullish about the growth

Krishna says that the paper-based packaging industry is poised for robust growth in the coming years as brand owners will enhance their demand for more paper-based packaging solutions. 

“We are very positive about the growth in the paper and paperboard-based packaging industry in the medium to long run. We are also ready with biodegradable solutions. Our aim is to work with bigger brands as we have all the expertise and the technology at our disposal,” he concludes. 

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.
