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 Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
