Silafrica Tanzania, a packaging supplier to East Africa and surrounding regions, was honored with five East Africa Best Brand Awards 2019. The company produces rigid packaging for food, beverage and chemicals packaging as well as consumer products for the middle income and base of pyramid populations in Africa for home, sanitation and schools.

The coveted award ceremony was hosted by the Employer Branding Institute, World HRD Congress and Stars of the Industry Group, and endorsed by the Asian Confederation of Businesses, Hospitality International, Thought Leaders, CMO ASIA, and others. The awards were presented during ceremonies held on 19 June 2019 at the White Sands Hotel and The Beach Resort, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

Silafrica Tanzania was recognized for excellence in five categories, including Manufacturer & Supplier of the Year, Best CSR Practice and Socially Responsible Company of the Year. In addition, the company was awarded the Emerging Brand Award for its Simtank line of commercial water tanks and Alpesh Patel was named chief executive officer of the year.

Patel, while accepting the Chief Executive Officer of the Year award, said, “I am deeply honored to receive this award. I believe that it is also recognition of our entire family of employees and their dedication to the highest standards of work in serving the needs of our customers, suppliers, employees, community and shareholders. I want to share our appreciation with you and we’re thankful for your support throughout the year.”

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.
