Nichrome has won the Pacmachine award yet again. This award is conferred by the Indian Institute of Packaging (IIP) for new developments and excellence in the packaging sector. Nichrome has consistently won the Pacmachine awards since its inception in 1994. The IIP has selected Nichrome’s Filpack Servo SMD machine for packing oil for the award, which will be presented to the company at IIP’s award function in October 2015.

It has motorized web tracking, jumbo film roll trolley and can operate on 320 mm web width as compared to the existing325mmwebwidth. These machines have been installed at many of the leading oil manufacturers such as Cargill India, Kallesuwari, Wilmar Group, Kamani Oil Industries, Liberty Oil Mills, MK Agrotech, Nataraj Oil Mills, PGEO Edible Oils, Swastik Oils, Kanpur Edible, Narayani Oils and more.

The Filpack Servo SMD can pack edible oils, ghee, vanaspati and also a variety of viscous products such as tomato puree, mango pulp, fresh cream, shrikhand, mayonnaise and more. Moreover, Nichrome offers an integrated project solution for handling and packing oil.

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.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
