This November, SIG, a leading systems and solutions provider for aseptic packaging based in Neuhausen, Switzerland, will be ‘unpacking the Perfect Package’ at Gulfood Manufacturing, one of the largest and most important Food & Beverage trade shows for the Middle East, Africa and Asian countries, attracting over 32,000 visitors.

Smart Factory solutions

Part 1 of SIG’s Perfect Package is based on future-focused Industrial Internet of Things (IioT) technologies. The solutions presented at the stand will help manufacturers digitally transform their facilities to achieve higher levels of production efficiency and quality while optimizing overall processes and services. 

SIG will also disclose more about its partnership with IioT leader GE Digital at Gulfood Manufacturing, elevating the concepts of Industry 4.0 to the next level. 

 Connected Pack solutions

Process optimization and efficiency are key at today’s competitive business interface. As some of the food industry’s most progressive and performance driven specialists, SIG’s team understand the business challenges facing today’s food and beverage manufacturers: speed to market, health and safety, sustainability and differentiation on shelf.

As Martin Schmedes, marketing and strategy director MEA of SIG said, “Our dedication to understanding customers’ needs goes beyond products and technology. We solve customers’ problems and offer new possibilities through an intelligent, holistic overview of their business needs. At the show we will highlight how SIG’s Perfect Package is helping our customers innovate differentiated products, build smarter filling plants and create interactive packs of the future.”

SIG is able to offer practical, results-driven solutions to improve production KPIs. For example, through using the Connected Pack, manufacturers can track and trace products throughout the value chain. Interactive layers can also be added to packs as part of digital promotional marketing campaigns, giving consumers greater product awareness and encouraging new purchasers to trial.

New purchasing power

Currently the largest demographic with purchasing power is that of Millennials and this is soon to be overtaken by Generation Z. The balance of purchasing power is changing and manufacturers need to keep pace with the latest innovation and sustainability demands.

According to Schmedes, “These two groups are far more discerning and conscious about the content of products they consume and the environment. Fair trade, recycled, sustainable, GMO free are no longer buzz words but are fast becoming a prerequisite for consumers. Our market experts work closely with R&D to expand our portfolio of packaging systems to reflect these demands. Our packaging innovations on show at Gulfood Manufacturing underline our commitment to deliver responsible products without compromising on the need for unique design and convenience.” 

Additive manufacturing, remote servicing, smarter processing, augmented reality and more. The future of food production will be on show at Gulfood Manufacturing and SIG’s disruptive differentiation and value-adding solutions are helping food & beverage manufacturers to open up new opportunities for performing better and growing faster.

SIG will be at Hall A1, Stand 34/54.

 

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. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
