Pune-based Nichrome, a leading company in manufacturing of form, fill and seal machinery has recently launched two products, multi-lane Stickpack and Filpack Servo 12K. Raosaheb Rayanade, associate vice president – sales and marketing division at Nichrome Packaging states, “Nichrome’s multilane Stickpack with Multi Piston Filler is a stick pack pouch packaging machine for liquids and viscous products. In 2006, we introduced our first product in the market for single-service packs and a decade later we have opted for a more compact system which is available with ten lanes with each lane offering a speed of 35 packs a minute.”

Stick packs and stick pouches are convenient for today’s on-the-go consumers. Not only is the stick design far more appealing than those of conventional pillow pouches but it also has the practical advantages of ease of opening and dispensing products without spillage. The usage of stick packs is projected to rise in the coming years. The response to stick packs has been overwhelming in hotels, resorts, catering businesses as well as eateries. Stick packs are ideal for many products including chocolates, coffee, cocoa, spices, sugar, salt and ketchups. Talking about the benefits of stick packs, Rayanade says, “The stick packs offer consumers convenience as the crimped edges tear easily and the narrow package enables users to squeeze out the contents without making a mess.”

Nichrome’s Filpack Servo 12K packs milk in 500 ml pouches at the speed of 12,000 pouches an hour. “In 1977 we came up with the first machine which offered a speed of 1,200 pouches an hour. Presently, the volume that is stocked every day is over 1 million litres of milk packed in pillow pouch formats. With the help of Flipack Servo, milk and other liquids in pouches are available in the market and the additional modules have a speed of up to 18,000 pouches an hour. Both multi-lane Stickpack and Filpack Servo 12K are CE-compliant and constructed in stainless steel to meet standard norms and offer automation solutions which drastically reduce the operational costs,” says Rayanade.

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.
