There are an increasing number of challenges for today’s food manufacturers. One of the most important challenges is to provide safe products to the end consumer and take the necessary steps to minimize the risk of hazards leading to product recalls. In the event of a recall, legal investigation, or an audit from food safety authorities, manufacturers must be able to provide the necessary documentary evidence to prove that they have been diligent in mitigating risks of contamination and/or mislabeling in the production process.

This webinar will cover the concept of due diligence as it relates to product inspection processes and covers legal requirements and standards as well as product recalls. The live webinar will be presented by Mr. Siddharth Kachroo, Head of Sales, Mettler-Toledo Product Inspection, India. He will link up with Mr. Adam Green, Market Manager, Mettler-Toledo Safeline X-ray in the UK who will give a live virtual demo of the latest in x-ray innovation.

In the webinar taking place on 5 October 2023 at 3pm Indian Time, Siddharth Kachroo and Adam Green will also be joined by guest speaker Ms. Nidhi Agarwal, Technical and Regulatory Affairs at Reliance Consumer Products who will address the Indian FSSAI regulations and compliance regime. The webinar will be moderated by Naresh Khanna, editor of Packaging South Asia and IndiFoodBev.

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!
