Pashupati Group – a Uttarakhand-headquartered company that deals in a wide range of products ranging from recycled stuff to packaging, masterbatches, and FIBC bags – has announced the signing of a memorandum of understanding with Borouge, a leading Abu Dhabi-based petrochemical company providing polyolefin solutions for packaging.

According to Pashupati Group, the collaboration aims to create a synergy between the two companies by bringing together their individual expertise in developing innovative solutions in collection, sorting and recycling as well as developing new sustainable materials for a better future.

“This partnership is a testament to Pashupati’s vision and relentless effort to contribute to a circular economy and create sustainable materials on par with prime materials. Our strong commitment to sustainability is a guiding factor in developing innovative solutions to reduce plastic waste and promote circularity,” Pashupati Group said in a release.

Harnessing the collective wisdom and expertise of Pashupati and Borouge will help not only to anticipate the future but also to proactively create and lead it, it said.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are grown similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground.
