The Jury of the Italian contest Best Packaging 2021 – former Oscar dell’Imballaggio, has announced that the solution proposed by Taghleef Industries and Lineapack has won the Best Packaging Award for the “Visionary” value according to the Ethical Packaging Charter Foundation. The competition, organized by Packaging Meeting and promoted by the Italian Packaging Institute (Istituto Italiano Imballaggio), is sponsored by the Ethical Packaging Charter Foundation (Fondazione Etica del Packaging). The Foundation shared its 10 core values – Responsibility, Balance, Safety, Accessibility, Transparency, Information, Contemporaneity, Forward-Thinking, Education, and Sustainability. The Awards have been assigned to the solutions that fully accomplished these principles.

The motivation that led the commission, chaired by professor Maurizio Boccacci Mariani, to reward the single-portion soft cheese packaging developed by Taghleef in collaboration with Lineapack is the capacity to understand and combine the complexity of the product packaging requirements with the needs and sustainability profile demanded by the consumer, which resulted in a forward-thinking package.

The proposed solution is made with a high barrier film, Extendo rcXTMH, in combination with a cast polypropylene film. Extendo rcXTMH is part of Taghleef Industries’ reLIFETM range that includes BOPP solutions with post-consumer chemically recycled content which allows for a significant saving of virgin raw material. To guarantee the sustainability of the process, starting with the management of raw materials, Taghleef Industries is certified according to the requirements of the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification.

Suitable for mechanical recycling streams, the new high barrier film can be used as a monoweb or as a laminate and is made to redesign the traditional multi-material structures used in most soft cheese applications with a more sustainable solution. During the Design Week, at Galleria Scognamiglio Artecontemporanea in Milan, three other solutions presented by Taghleef Industries were also showcased to the public. These were – a biotape made in collaboration with Filmac, made with a biobased polypropylene film obtained from renewable resources (tall oil); a bag for herbal teas designed with Lineapack using a compostable paper and Nativia NTSS 40μm, a PLA biobased and compostable film; and, a stand-up pouch designed with Poplast and produced by laminating Extendo XZMX 18μm, a high barrier film with single coated paper

Taghleef’s collaborative and pioneering spirit in promoting new sustainable solutions has been awarded for two consecutive years by Best Packaging Award. In 2020, the ‘Best Packaging Award Quality Design’ was assigned to the prototype presented with the Gerosa Group for dairy products.

The 2021 Best Packaging edition, which for over 60 years has rewarded innovation in the packaging industry, will be remembered for its strong stance on the ethical and sustainable value of innovation in packaging, an approach already adopted by Taghleef through its Dynamic Cycle. This is Taghleef’s overall set of initiatives aimed to address sustainability issues within and for its stakeholders which includes the redesign of traditional packaging with the goal to contribute to the quality of life for the generations to come.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
