Kanodia’s Innovation strategy
Kanodia’s innovative approach, including its entry in to CPP film manufacturing three years ago, has been paying off with the increase in demand for better quality of CPP film and its flexible packaging materials business.
“The past year has been quite satisfying for us. In spite of the initial hiccups due to demonetization and GST, there wasn’t any scarcity in demand as our customers continued robust growth,” says Dhruv Kanodia, director flexible packaging, Kanodia Technoplast Limited. “The FMCG industry is growing rapidly. The government is doing its bit in a bid to aid the industry. The industry’s growth will be beneficial for us,” he adds.
Speaking about the slowdown in consumer product market, Kanodia’s executive president, Anant Gadre, says, “I feel that the unorganized sector had been affected by the tax reforms such as GST in the initial phase and is now recovering. The organized sector remained fairly unaffected and looking at the current scenario, I feel that the market growth will continue to hit double-digit growth figure.”
Kanodia has successfully introduced a new anti-skid feature for bulk pouches. The anti-skid feature prevents stacked food bags from skidding down from a pile.
The company has a pipeline full of innovative and novel products and is in discussion with several FMCG customers adding value to their brands.
