The international jury of the renowned trade journal Lürzer’s Archive has chosen Zanders, an expert in high-quality special papers and cardboards in Germany, along with its perfume packaging sample Zanpack touch, amongst the ‘200 Best Packaging Design Worldwide 2017/2018.’ The dummy designed for Zanders by Düsseldorf advertising agency zinnobergruen, with its eye-catching material design, has made it into the popular book series of the same name, ‘200 Best,’ by Lürzer’s Archive and therefore onto the world stage of creation. The special is available in 50 countries and gives advertisers an insight into the top packaging innovations of the past few years.

The sample packaging by Zanders is particularly characterized by the contrasting interplay of glossy and matt effects. “The strong contrast between the gleaming color effects of the hot foil processing and the naturally coarse, uncoated surface of the Zanpack touch cardboard quality is an immediately positive eye-catcher,” says John Tucker, sales director at Zanders. “Zanpack touch has excellent stiffness as well as exceptional finishing options from punching and embossing to elaborate foil finishing. All these properties offer the ideal basis for the perfect appearance at the point of sale.”

In order to give a clear view of the properties of its cardboard qualities, along with the Zanpack packaging samples, Zanders also has application examples of the Chromolux premium box. Folding box manufacturers, branded companies and designers can request the dummies as well as the sample swatches and collections from Zanders.

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 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.
