Global food processing and packaging solutions provider, tna, is launching an all-new virtual platform; tna Connects.

The company said the new platform will provide the food manufacturing community insight, innovation and inspiration. “From sharing expert-led solutions and expertise, to gaining a better understanding of the challenges facing today’s food manufacturers, tna connects will bring a host of live virtual events directly to manufacturers the world over,” it said.

The platform launches with a series of four virtual roundtables on topics which include conveying, packaging, processing and seasoning from 9-12 November. The discussions will supplement the product innovation information and tna’s live sessions at Pack Expo Connects, offering a greater level of detail on the growing concerns facing food manufacturers today.

Specialists from tna, alongside senior industry leaders from leading snack brands, including Richmond Baking, Campbell’s Snacks and World Food Products, among others will guide the conversation and share examples from real-life challenges, installment stories and solutions.

We’re continually looking for ways to innovate and add real value to our customers and prospects. The new online platform is a fantastic way for fellow professionals to connect and expand their knowledge – wherever they are in the world,” comments Alf Taylor, managing director & chief executive officer at tna. “With sudden fluctuations in product demand throughout the pandemic and changing consumer habits, the food industry has experienced considerable challenges in recent months. We want to create a community through which we can discuss challenges and share key learnings, as well as information about the latest technologies and innovations. All with a view to helping manufacturers take their production capabilities to the next level.”

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!
