Hyderabad-based Caro Water is known for making sustainable paper boxes for drinking water. Caro water is nutrient-enriched water that influences its customers through a green lifestyle, health consciousness, and the planet. It has made 5-liter, 10-liter, and 20-liter boxes for households, corporate offices, hospitals, hotels, events, catering services, and more. Based on a bag-in-box concept with options including a plastic dispensing tap, the company claims that it has reduced the use of plastic by 85% in comparison to PET containers and also that it uses 100% plastics.

Currently, the company is mainly taking orders from Hyderabad through an app named Caro Water App. Water is sold mainly in plastics, whether 1-liter pet bottles or 20 liters bubble cans which are neither healthy for human consumption nor the environment. Caro Water claims its boxes have a longer shelf life, eco-friendly packaging, nutrient-enriched water, a hygienic filling process, tamper-proof taps, and the plastics its uses are BPA-free. The boxes are claimed to be easier to carry, and more easily dispensable and recyclable through a company program.

Suneeth Tatineni, co-founder and managing director at Caro Water, says, “Our product is a corrugated box that reduces plastic usage by 85 %. It is 100 % recyclable and is recycled with the help of our Recycle Program, where we encourage customers by providing them with credit points for their participation. We have also collaborated with recycling plants so the [material] separated empty boxes will be sent to the respective recycling plants where they will be handled appropriately.”

“With the help of Caro Water box, we are trying to make an impact on society to reduce plastic usage and also handing the minimal amount that we are using responsibly. We are in the R&D stage to bring on bottles of 1-liter size or smaller than it, which are planned to be 100% eco-friendly. This packaging has a lot of advantages to pack and supply liquids and semi-liquids, which we believe will be the future of packaging for a sustainable future.”

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.
