Mumbai-based flexible packaging solutions provider Sanjeev Flexi Pack kicked off interpack 2017 on an exciting note with many potential customers visiting their stand on the first day. Sanjeev Flexi Pack manufactures laminated rolls, a variety of laminated pouches and carry-bags. At interpack, the company is showing different types of solutions such as laminated pouches, laminated rolls, profile-cut pouches (with and without spouts), retort pouches and pouches made with high barrier films, among others. Its manufacturing unit is
located in the northern Mumbai suburb of Bhiwandi and has an in-house designing and prepress studio.

“The first day was indeed a very busy day for us as visitors came from countries like Ireland, Russia, UK and US. What has also helped in higher footfall is the fact that our stand was very strategically located,” said Nandhini S. Kumar, manager – exports, Sanjeev Flexi Pack. Although there were a variety of solutions on display at the stand, Sanjeev Flexi Pack was especially promoting its large format bags. These bags are mainly 15 kg or more in size and are used in packing items such as rice, flour, fertilizes, pet  food, etc. “There are very few manufacturers in India who are actively offering solutions like large format bags,” Kumar informed.

Focus on global market

Untitled 2 1With exports being an important component of the company’s revenue, Sanjeev Flexi Pack keeps a good visibility in the global markets and regularly participates in various leading global exhibitions. Apart from interpack, the company was also present at the recently concluded IFE 2017 in UK. “IFE is a small show but it is a very good show with focus on the UK market. The idea was to meet with as many potential UK customers as possible since we were not able to meet many of them during other exhibitions. We consider UK as a very important market,” Kumar stated.

Last year Sanjeev Flexi Pack participated in North America’s biggest packaging event, Pack Expo International, which was held in Chicago. This year it will again be at Pack Expo Las Vegas, which will take place in September. Pack Expo is held in Chicago in even years while it takes place in Las Vegas in odd years. Last year Sanjeev Flexi Pack also participated in Emballage Paris. “We consider these events very important as they not only enhance our brand visibility but also help us meet potential customers from across the globe,” Kumar said.

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.
