Asda packs – Kingsmoor & Greencore

Food for PET from 50% recycled waste

5

Kingsmoor Packaging and Greencore have delivered four premium quality food grade packaging solutions for new Asda ‘grab & go’ lunch options. Produced for either salads or
pasta recipes, such as Indian spiced chicken salad and tomato & basil pasta, the thermoformed bowls have either separate lids, or single web heatsealed polyester lidding film and were manufactured in either black or clear rPET, which contains at least 50% postconsumer recycled waste.

Kingsmoor Packaging’s James Hill said, “Our strength within the FMCG marketplace is being able to provide a fast and responsive service from design through to the manufacturing
stage, and then making sure everything is delivered on time for production trials and launch. With in-house tooling and design, operating in tandem with our state-of-the-art production facilities, we are able to provide Greencore with a nimble, flexible and cost effective single source service.”

As per Greencore’s Clair Oliveria, purchasing controller – packaging, “Greencore has a great relationship with Kingsmoor Packaging. They are responsive and really tuned into the
quick turnaround we need to meet the requirements of our retail customers. The recent salad launch was a complex project, but was delivered on time and the end product really stands out on shelf.”

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.
