The second edition of T-Food (Traditional Food Festival & Expo) 2019 is being organized by CII between 23 and 25 August 2019 at Chennai Trade Centre, Chennai. The event will be held concurrently with ‘Foodpro 2019’, an exclusive show on food processing, packaging and technology, and ‘ColdStoRe India’, a focused event on cold storage, refrigeration and transportation.

T-Food aims to spread awareness about the native traditional foods in India and will serve as a networking platform for suppliers, producers, distributors and food service providers, who can in turn showcase their products and developments including processing of traditional food in a healthy way, preservation techniques, geographical indications, and recipes of cooking traditional foods.

The exhibition is expected to have more than 300 traditional food exhibitors from green and functional foods, traditional edible oils manufacturers, storage and processing technology, processing machines and technology, ready-to-eat and cooked food and organic grains.

CII is also organizing sectorial conferences on topics like food processing and packaging technologies, cold chain technologies and traditional foods, which will bring food industry leaders, manufacturers, dealers, suppliers and government officials all under one roof.

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 grown 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 and to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
