Piyush Goyal, minister of state (independent charge) for power, coal, new and renewable energy presented the award to Tetra Pak Communications director Jaideep Gokhale and environment director Pravin Mallick at a ceremony held in Delhi on 9 July 2016.

“We started to see a growing demand in India for safe and hygienic food packaged in Tetra Pak cartons from the early 2000s. For this reason, we have been working ahead of the curve to set up a viable ecosystem to encourage and build awareness around the recycling of our fully-recyclable paper-based cartons. We began our journey from scratch nearly 15 years ago, with virtually no carton collections. Since then, we have been collaborating with stakeholders across the value chain – recyclers, waste pickers, NGOs, consumers and government bodies – to improve the collection and recycling of our cartons. Today, thanks to that early start, one in every three Tetra Pak cartons consumed in India is being recycled. Of course, there is more ground to cover but together with our partners, we are all set to keep the momentum going,” said Tetra Pak South Asia Markets managing director Kandarp Singh.

As you join us today from India and elsewhere, we have a favour to ask. Through these times of ambiguity and challenge, the packaging industry in India and in most parts of the world has been fortunate. We are now read in more than 90 countries as our coverage widens and increases in impact. Our traffic as per analytics more than doubled in 2020 and many readers chose to support us financially even when advertising fell to pieces.

As we come out of the pandemic in the next few months, we hope to again expand our geography and evolve our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information, with some of the best correspondents in the industry. If there were ever a time to support us, it is now. You can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help to sustain us by subscribing.
