Uflex’s liner bags and films

Asia Fruit Logistica 7 to 9 Sept

Cut mushroom has been validated for ten days of shelf-life with a weight loss below 3%. Flexfresh bags for 2 kg sliced mushroom are available in both roll and bag form

Uflex, India’s largest global flexible packaging solution company is launching its Flexfresh Liner Bags and Films for the fresh produce industry at Asia Fruit Logistica in Hong Kong from 7 to 9 September 2016. The company uses Active Modified Atmospheric Packaging
(AMAP) technology from Perfotec to determine the respiration rate of the fresh produce for shelf-life extension solution. The AMAP technology uses an online calculator to calculate the
transmission value based on produce weight, supply chain temperature, respiration rate, film properties and barrier

Uflex has developed the world’s first Biodegradable Fresh Produce packaging that keeps the produce touch dry, but allows it to breathe in hydrated oxygen. Flexfresh keeps the weight loss to the minimum delivering maximum value to the supply chain. Flexfresh controls bacterial and fungal infections inside the bag using the naturally producing carbon dioxide by the produce.

Uflex and Perfotec will jointly launch the world’s total Shelf-Life Extension Solution in Hong Kong during Asia Fruit Logistica (Hall 3 Stand T-39); Flexfresh has been extensively used across products such as bell peppers, pomegranates, cucumbers, potatoes, grapes, mangoes, papaya, french beans, broccoli, iceberg lettuce, melons and other fruits.

Flexfresh recently has been validated and approved by one of the Global Food Chains for cut mushroom for pizza topping and the quality and the shelf-life has made availability continuous across retail stores. Cut mushroom has been validated for ten days of shelf-life with a weight loss below 3%. Flexfresh bags for 2 kg sliced mushroom are available in both roll and bag form.

Packaging South Asia is a cooperating media partner for drupa 2016 which was held from 31 May to 10 June at Dusseldorf, Germany

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.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
