DIC India has started providing Technical Safety Audits to its existing and new customers as ‘value-added services,’ which help customers in identifying their key fire safety risks and
advising them on remedial measures and actions. Timely adoption of these practices and taking remedial action where necessary leads to mitigating a lot of the operational risks in flexible packaging plants and avoids hazards and injuries to personnel as well as production and business interruptions. Available services in this vertical include safety training and emergency planning.

For the flexible packaging industry which is prone to such safety hazards (with several serious incidents in recent years attributed to poor housekeeping amongst other safety and
health hazards), the DIC Safety Audits have been welcomed by converters as a useful value addition. New customers setting up their greenfield plants with less knowledge of the safety risks in such operations have shown great interest in using these services fromthe DIC team, which has helped them in identifying safety risks in their new operations and to take control measures to address them.

Some of the customers who have availed the safety audit and consultation services are really excited and have appreciated the effort in engaging and supporting customers. DIC India is committed to extend all possible support to its customers.

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.
