Additionally, the package is composed of approximately 69%* renewable paperboard material, sourced from responsibly managed forests and other controlled sources, with Forest Stewardship Council™ certification**.

In addition to Tetra Recart, Tetra Pak will showcase its diverse packaging portfolio, designed to meet evolving consumer expectations while ensuring that safe food can be distributed across the country without the need for preservatives or refrigeration. The company will also present its capabilities in the processing of various prepared foods, including hummus, cream cheese, ready meals, tomato ketchup, and a delectable assortment of desserts.

Speaking on its participation at the global event, Cassio Simões, managing director, Tetra Pak South Asia said, “For over 35 years, Tetra Pak has remained steadfast in its commitment to ensuring food safety and accessibility throughout India, guided by our brand promise to ‘Protect what’s good.’ Aligned with this ethos, our innovative solutions aim to unlock a new future for the food and beverage industry in an environmentally sustainable manner.

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!
