Cosmo Films
Black Velvet lamination film

Cosmo Films, a global leader in films for packaging, labeling and lamination applications was recently announced as one of the winners for SIES SOP and IFCA Star Awards for excellence in its packaging innovation and product development in the flexibles space.

The winning entries for SIES SOP Star Awards include a recyclable soap wrap film and an Ultra High Barrier Film that can serve as a replacement of aluminum foil. The recyclable soap wrap film is a major innovation as it helps both brands and converters fair better on laminate structure rationalization & GSM reduction thus reducing the overall costs; better aesthetics because of pearl effect and recyclability quotient. The winning entry for IFCA star award includes a Black Velvet Lamination film which offers intense black color along with velvet touch to the laminated paper/paperboard or package, thereby enhancing its overall aesthetics.

IFCA Star Awards are conferred by the Indian Flexible Packaging & Folding Cartons Association. SIES SCHOOL OF PACKAGING STAR AWARDS are presented by SIES that is credited with producing some of the finest professionals of the packaging industry. The awards presentation ceremonies for both the awards are yet to take place (scheduled for November); however, the winners have already been announced.

Expressing delight over the latest award announcements, Tapas Mandal, head – Research & Development at Cosmo Films said, “We are humbled to receive these awards. Any form of recognition encourages us to only raise our product standards to the next level. These awards go on to further assure our customers that we have been developing some of the finest products with improved functionalities & aesthetics with cost effectiveness in mind.”

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.
