Mulch films being used for cultivation

Alpha Plastomers is a leading name in the manufacture of flexible packaging solutions such as shrink films and speciality films. The Surat-based firm will be at interpack for the second time. The last time it participated in the event was in 2014, when Alpha Plastomers had a great experience. The company has two manufacturing plants located at Daman and Roorkee.

POF shrink film is used by industries across the board, from food to electronics to furniture. “Mulch film is a new addition to our product portfolio. It is aimed at helping the agriculture industry increase its crop yield,” says Akshay Agarwal, director, Alpha Plastomers. The black and white mulch film guards cultivation from insects and weeds and also improves crop growth by preventing water and necessary nutrients from evaporating.

Agarwal informs that at interpack the company plans to meet various distributors and end customers from the packaging and agricultural sectors. Export market is something about which the company is very serious. It supplies to markets such as Europe, Middle East, Africa and Southeast Asia. With an ambition of making a presence in the US market, Alpha participated in PackExpo Chicago for the first time last year.

Alpha also manufactures PET bottles but currently has no plans to bring those to the international market. “Currently, our PET solutions are targeted only to the Indian market,” he says. At interpack, Alpha Plastomers will be in Hall 7, Stand 72A37.

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.
