The flexible packaging solution from Bosch Packaging Technology wins its second prestigious award since its launch at interpack 2014

The two-in-one biscuit packaging system will be awarded with the WorldStar 2016 packaging award. The award is presented annually by the World Pack-aging Organisation (WPO). Essential to the assessment is for a product to combine innovation with outstanding execution. The jurors evaluated a total of 293 projects from 35 countries across ten categories. The official award ceremony will take place in May 2016 during the International Packaging Conference in Budapest, Hungary. After winning the German Packaging Award 2014, Bosch Packaging Technology has now been honoured with a second prestigious award for its innovative packaging solution – the WorldStar 2016.

The biscuit packaging solution from Bosch is the first of its kind which allows for fast changeovers between slug and pile packs on the same line. This ensures optimal product flow and combines high output with careful handling of all kinds and shapes of biscuits. It also enables manufacturers to change pack sizes in a short timeframe. No machine parts are required to be changed for the purposes of switching between pack formats. This kind of capability allows food manufacturers to introduce different formats and special sales campaigns at very short notice, addressing fast changing consumer demands.

As part of the Bosch portfolio, the entire system – from product distribution right through to primary and secondary packaging – has been designed as a seamlessly integrated system for maximum overall equipment effectiveness (OEE). The two-in-one biscuit packaging system also takes up less floor space than the two separate machines previously required to produce both pack styles. Since its launch in 2014, several systems have already been sold to well-known biscuit manufacturers across the globe.

The two-in-one biscuit packaging system from Bosch can easily change from slug to pile formats as well as adjusting pack sizes ‒ record time

The WPO is a non-profit, non-governmental, international federation of national and regional packaging institutes and associations as well as other members such as individual companies. The federation was founded in 1968, inspired by the vision of a ‘better quality of life through better packaging for more people.’ One of its goals include promoting the development of packaging technology.

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.
