Gayatrishakti stall saw a full house during all the three days at IndiaCorr Expo, with visitors making a beeline for an audience. Gayatri Shakti Papers and Boards is renowned in the packaging industry for producing duplex and kraft papers and supplying them to leading carton and box convertors in India, Sri Lanka and Dubai regions. For the corrugated industry, Gayatri showcased its multilayer test liner, primarily used for packing of heavy goods including fridge, air conditioners and a few others that ensure the safety of products during transit.

“Our sole intention to participate in the event was to create a branding of kraft paper products ranging from 120 gsm to 300 gsm,” said Mahesh Jalan, Executive Director, Gayatrishakti Paper and Boards Ltd. “Among the range of products on display, the paper with 28 burst factor (BF) was our key product at the stall. With the development of ecommerce, there is a high possibility to cause an increase in consumption of kraft paper. Our state-of-the-art machinery is equipped with Valmet and Voith technology—a superior brand in paper machinery—that ensures smooth running of paper on corrugation machines and helps to perform consistently from reel to reel,” he added.

Currently, the company manufactures around 350 tons of kraft a day and expects to touch Rs. 600 crores of turnover in the current financial year. During Diwali season, the company plans to launch white liner board, manufactured and supplied by a few mills in India.

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.
