Airnov Healthcare Packaging, a global leader in controlled atmosphere packaging, has expanded its range of Aroma-Can products to incorporate a wider range of flavors and scents. Strawberry and mint Aroma-Can have been added to the lineup of products, which are injection molded with a specially scented polymer compounded into the resin to release over time.

Many nutraceuticals, such as fish oil tablets and valerian root, have inherently off-putting odors that discourage customers from taking the product as prescribed or from re-purchasing. Designed to drop into packaging, Aroma-Can emits a pleasant aroma made to mask unwanted odors typically found in some herbal and nutraceutical products.

They are also used to enhance the customer experience and brand appeal by adding an associated aroma to vitamins, probiotics, and other dietary supplements.

Airnov making products fully automatable & compatible 

Nicolas Martinez, global product manager at Airnov, commented: “What started as a niche product has exploded thanks to nutraceutical brand owners responding to consumers focusing more on their health and our ability to deliver new, tailored scents to the market in an easily automatable package.”

Martinez continued, “Some herbal supplements work great, but just plain smell bad! With many studies showing that the sense of smell is most closely linked with memory, we want our client’s customers to recall fresh-cut strawberries, not sardines when it’s time to take another dose.”

In terms of geometry, the Aroma-Can is the same shape and size as Airnov’s standardized 1-gram desiccant canisters, making the product fully automatable and compatible with canister insertion equipment readily available on the market.

The new flavors join the existing core range of orange, lemon, and vanilla, with Airnov also creating new and custom scents to meet specific customer applications.


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.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
