Videojet Technologies, globally renowned for coding, marking and printing solutions, has developed the Beverage Hub web portal ( Beverage) which provides manufacturers with a reliable and comprehensive source of information to help them meet changing coding and labelling requirements. It will also provide application support and educational documentation such as white papers, customer success stories, application videos and regulatory infographics.

Recent developments in the beverage industry have encouraged manufacturers to find innovative ways to help drive sales. It is forecasted that global beverage sales will grow by 3.9% in 2016 compared to 2015. Like most industries, the beverage industry has seen an increasing trend of health and wellness products, and with varying packaging types, sizes and product requirements, staying on top of consumer preferences is becoming an ever more difficult task for beverage manufacturers and packaging designers.

Printing best by dates, lot codes and other information onto the package is an essential task for beverage manufacturers, as retailers look at this information to assist them with stock rotation, and consumers use this information to check for product freshness. However, printing the required information is not as straightforward as it sounds. Chirag Sheth, vertical marketing manager for beverage at Videojet says, “Different flavours, packaging and nutritional requirements all add coding complexity to a beverage manufacturer. There are many factors that must be considered when selecting the right type of coding equipment for a specific beverage production line.”

Customizable coding solutions are also helping manufacturers in the beverage industry directly connect with consumers with the application of intelligent variable codes on their products. Sheth continues, “We appreciate the trends that are changing the way beverage manufacturers of all sizes are behaving. With the Beverage Hub, it is our aim to make it as simple as possible by providing relevant information they need in a language they can relate to – all in one location.”

Videojet is a world-leader in the product identification market, providing in-line printing, coding, and marking products, application specific fluids, and product life cycle services and has a long history of serving the beverage industry with a strong portfolio of coding and marking solutions.  Videojet’s distribution network includes more than 400 distributors and OEMs, serving 135 countries.

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.
