Gujarat-based Knack Packaging has been manufacturing and exporting HDPE/PP woven sacks, fabrics and multicolor printed BOPP laminated PP woven sacks and bags for more than two decades. The company has its manufacturing plant in Mehsana district of Gujarat. Having been active in the export market for a long time now, with exports to 55 countries, the company finally decided to participate in interpack for the first time this year.

“We have generally been participating in focused exhibitions all over the world, mainly those related to food. However, we decided to come to interpack this year and the experience has been very good. We met some interesting visitors,” said Shidhin Nair, manager – international business, Knack Packaging.

At interpack, Knack Packaging is showing samples of a wide range of its solutions. Almost half of its customers are in the food business and the rest in segments like pet food, fertilizers, cement, detergents, etc. “Our bags range in size from 5 kg to 75 kg, and we are among Asia’s biggest in this segment as our plant can produce 700,000 bags per day,” Nair informed.

Some of the hardware employed at Knack Packaging’s plant are rotogravure printing press, extruders, circular weaving machine, lamination machines, cutting and stitching machines, gusseting machines and bale press machine.

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.
