For over 200 years, DuPont has been synonymous with life-changing discoveries and scientific know-how. As the company takes the next step toward becoming the new DuPont, it has unveiled a fresh global brand identity and logo that recognizes its heritage while conveying the company’s focus on a customer-led innovation strategy and purpose-driven culture.

DowDuPont announced in February 2018 that its Specialty Products Division would carry the DuPont name when it becomes an independent company, which is expected about 1 June 2019, subject to approval of the DowDuPont Board of Directors and other customary closing conditions.

“Our new branding is one of many steps we are taking in DuPont’s transformation and amplifies what we do; help our customers solve complex problems, and turn their best ideas into real-world products and solutions,” said Barbara Pandos, chief communications officer, Specialty Products Division of DowDuPont. “It preserves the legacy shape of the iconic DuPont Oval, which for more than a century has provided a seal of quality, performance and trust, but it will no longer be constrained by an elliptical border – signaling a collaborative and open flow of ideas and innovation.”

As a premier innovation company, DuPont discovers and delivers value-added specialized solutions that foster sustainable progress and enrich people’s everyday lives. DuPont’s new brand purpose – “To empower the world with the essential innovations to thrive” – builds upon a rich history of discovery and progress. Some examples of DuPont’s best-known product brands include Kevlar fiber, Tyvek high-performance materials, Sorona renewably sourced fiber and Danisco food ingredients; and the new DuPont portfolio includes Great Stuff insulating foam sealant.

The new logo will appear with immediate effect and will be featured on DuPont’s digital channels. Packaging and signage will be changed over gradually following the launch of the new company.

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.
