A new stackable jar from Berry Global offers a valuable space-saving solution on retail shelves, through eCommerce channels, and in the home. At the same time, the jar provides excellent consumer convenience, and its effective product protection, reusability, and recyclability enhance its environmental profile.

The innovative design of the 500 milliliter Staka jar incorporates a 63 millimeter recess in the base into which the accompanying 63 millimeter cap, also from Berry as part of a complete container and closure solution, fits snugly. This allows the jars to be easily stacked and remain very stable.

The cap itself can be specified in a variety of colors, while the eye-catching ‘square round’ design of the Staka jar is ideal for labeling or sleeving, creating brand identity and individuality on shelf.

For food manufacturers and processors, the wide mouth of the jar ensures easy filling. Its multilayer construction also allows hot filling and delivers effective product protection for an extended shelf life that helps to minimize food waste.

The jar provides safe and easy handling for consumers. After use, it is ideal as a storage container and can be recycled where appropriate recycling facilities exist.

This latest design underlines Berry’s expertise in devising solutions in line with customer requirements, as John Richardson, general manager of the Berry Corby facility, explained, “Many of our customers have approached us recently, keen to develop stackable jars for all sorts of products from spices and sauces for our food clients to lubricants in the commercial sector, so we feel confident that there is a need for this design.”

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 growing 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!
