Leading pharma-packaging firm, Kaisha Packaging, has successfully delivered over 2 billion doses worth of flip-top aluminium seals used for packaging Covid vaccines. The seal is used as a closure for injection vials during the vaccination drive and is an essential part of the vaccine package that ensures tamper-proof delivery.  

Kaisha Packaging has been the biggest supplier for these seals to all the vaccines available in the Indian market and abroad. The company managed to arrange and stock an extremely large volume of raw material to ensure a consistent supply of vaccines and plug any shortages or gaps. Kaisha Packaging also expanded its capacity by over 450 million pieces to reach the overall capacity of 1.2 billion pieces per annum over the past year. 

Kaisha Packaging on supporting India’s vaccine drive

Rishad Dadachanji, director, Kaisha Group of companies, shared, “This is a testimonial of our commitment to support India’s vaccine drive and developers with the best packaging solutions. As a pharma allied sector company, we have worked hard to ensure no gaps remain in our supply chain to ensure a consistent supply of vaccine seals. We are proud to have provided seals for over 2 billion vaccine doses so far. Under the current circumstances of ambiguity around the Covid-19 pandemic, Kaisha is well-prepared to rise up to any supply challenges.” 

Kaisha Packaging was established as a premium manufacturer of pharmaceutical closure systems for vials and specialty plastics for pharmaceutical use in 2003. 

The company is part of the larger (Dadachanji Group), headquartered in Mumbai, India. It is a diversified group with business interests, including pharmaceuticals and biotechnology, primary and secondary packaging, medical devices, machine building, automation, and robotics. The group previously also owned a part of the Indo-German Venture Schott-Kaisha, the largest vaccine vial supplier in the country. 



The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
