Anti-counterfeiting and track-and-trace featuresDigital can produce secure packagingDigitally printed cartons and labels can incorporate a number of security, anti-counterfeiting and track and trace features ranging from invisible and micro text to machine readable codes such as QR codes. Inherently each unit of primary packaging can also have a unique identifier using variable printing. At the recent Hunkeler Innovationdays held at Lucerne from 23 to 26 February 2015, while the press featured at its stand was the new Xeikon 9800 for document and commercial printing, a representative demonstrated the extensive security features that are being produced by label and packaging converters using the Xeikon 3500 wide web press.
Digitally printed cartons and labels can incorporate a number of security, anti-counterfeiting and track-and-trace features ranging from invisible and micro text to machine readable codes such as QR codesOne of the security features shown to us at Hunkeler uses a small infra-red torch that is able to detect an invisible printed mark on the packaging. It gives a green light if the packaging is genuine or a red light if it is counterfeit. This is a simple device and system that can be used for monitoring and preventing counterfeiting at the retail side of the supply chain.

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.
