Flint Group has launched the EkoCure Ancora, the narrow web industry’s premier UV LED curable low migration ink series suitable for food compliant labels and packaging applications.

EkoCure Ancora is the newest innovation in our industry, combining revolutionary technology of UV LED curing along with low migration food compliant chemistries. Together, the technologies enable food safe printing with the highest reliability and productivity due to stable curing at high press speeds and optimized UV LED ink chemistry.

As highlighted by Guillaume Clement, global vice president for Flint Group Narrow Web, “Fitting with our commitment to support food compliant labels and packaging, it is with great excitement that we commercialize this new product line. EkoCure Ancora expands our Ancora low migration portfolio and enables converters to grow their business with short run
flexible food packaging.”

Kelly Kolliopoulos, global marketing director for Flint Group Narrow Web says, “The innovative journey in developing UV LED curing products that was started four years ago by Flint Group, is culminating in a milestone development—low migration UV LED curable inks.”

“We believe strongly in low migration UV LED technology. The combination offers all the economic benefits of UV LED curing, including better press uptime and productivity and reduced energy consumption; along with the peace of mind converters are seeking for food compliant packaging due to the assuredness of cure.”

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.
