Gerresheimer plants in the Indian city of Kosamba are responding to the Gujarat state government’s call for help and supplying 500 food packages to employees and migrant workers affected by the travel ban due to border closures in the wake of Covid-19.

“These 500 food packages will help families to get through what is an extremely difficult time for them. They will continue receiving these packages for as long as the lockdown continues. We have also started a One Day salary Challenge with nearly 350 of our company employees, challenging them in a positive way to donate one day’s worth of their basic salary for this cause on a voluntary basis,” says Lakshmananarayanan Reddy, plant manager for Gerresheimer in Kosamba. “By doing this, we are supporting people in these times who have found themselves in this situation through no fault of their own and now simply need our help.”

Gerresheimer has long been producing glass and plastic containers for liquid and solid medicines following international standards at its ISO-certified plants in India. The range includes glass containers such as glass injection vials and ampoules as well as plastic containers for tablets and powdered medicines. With its three plants for producing glass and plastic pharmaceutical containers, Gerresheimer’s base in Kosamba is one of the largest employers in the Indian state of Gujarat. With Triveni, Gerresheimer also owns another large plant that manufactures plastic containers in Kundli in the state of Haryana and has offices in Mumbai and New Delhi.

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.
