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.

 

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.
