The Label Industry Global Awards presentation will be held at Brussels Expo during Labelexpo Europe 2017

Nominations are sought for the prestigious R. Stanton Avery Lifetime Achievement Award, sponsored by Avery Dennison, which will be awarded in recognition of the contribution an industry professional has made during their time working within the label sector. Bestowed in memory of Stan Avery’s pioneering spirit and values, the worthy recipient must have worked in the industry for over 25 years. Previous winners include Bruce Bell from Belmark Inc, FINAT’s Kurt Walker, Ritrama’s Tomas Rink and Steve Lee from RotoMetrics.

The Award for Innovation, sponsored by Flint Group Narrow Web, consists of two prizes—one for companies with over 300 employees and the second for organizations with less than 300 employees. Entries must be for the development of a specific innovation in 2016 and can either be for a new business process or technology related. Jindal Films Americas won 2015’s award for its development of a white surface-printable polyolefin film, Platinum Thermal. Eshuis BV won the second Innovation Award (for companies with less than 300 employees), for the production of its three-layer bow label for Coca-Cola bottles.

The Award for Sustainability, sponsored by Xeikon, acknowledges a new sustainable product or process that has been introduced during 2016. Dow Chemical Company triumphed in this category last year for its Chemical Sustainability Tool initiative which was designed to let teams quickly evaluate sustainability opportunities, document their thoughts and create an effective visual way of communicating the results.
Entry is free and open till 17 May 2017.

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.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
