Ice & Easy Frozen Alcoholic Slushies

UNI Packaging’s new standup pouches


UNI Packaging has worked with the Ice Co to provide digitally printed stand-up pouches for its ‘Ice & Easy’ branded Frozen Alcoholic Slushies. The Ice Co approached UNI Packaging
with a specific interest in digital print. As the new lines were due for launch this summer, the emphasis was on the creation of premium look pouches but with a rapid turnaround by using the flexibility and scalability advantages of digital production.

Following successful packaging trials, UNI Packaging produced the new tooling for the 250ml stand-up pouches, creating an attractive shape that is convenient for consumer handling. Utilising UNI Packaging’s innovative digital offering, Digiflex, the pouches were reverse printed with a matt lacquer applied and laminated as a 4-ply structure. The pouches include a tear notch for ease of opening.

Ginny Durdy, The Ice Co’s marketing manager, said, “The brief to UNI Packaging was to produce great looking pouches in a short time frame to meet specific summer launch schedules. Delivered on time, both new lines are exciting additions to the range and are
dressed to impress with a brand new look in elegant packaging that offers shelf stand-out, together with a premium appeal.”

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.
