The novel coronavirus pandemic is creating a demand shock for the Indian economy. The Covid-19 lockdown could lead to further moderation of the country’s GDP growth as it disrupts all sectors. Nevertheless, many manufacturers and suppliers are reacting to the new needs of the healthcare sector with solutions. Pune-based Bossar Packaging India, a manufacturer of Bossar HFFS for liquid and solid products, and PFS machines is offering its HFFS machine range for hand wash and sanitizer filling and packaging.


With over 1800 machine installation across the globe, Bossar remains a supplier to mainly the food, beverages, and pharma segments. The company offers solutions (B 1400, B 1600, and B 3200) that are ideal for packing gels and powders in a 3/4 side seal sachet.


Dhruv Waikar, head of sales for food, pharma, and FMCG, explains the portfolio, “The BMK series of Bossar HFFS machines are versatile and produce stand up pouches with zip locks or side or top spouts. These machines meet the majority of flexible packaging requirements for food, beverages, cosmetic, personal care, pharmaceutical and chemical products. Bossar’s GMB series offers an ideal technical solution for filling heavy and large volume formats.”

Covid-19 lockdown impact

Waikar sees a direct impact of the Covid-19 lockdown on its business, as many companies have stopped investing in any new CAPEX. He adds, “Our potential customers have shelved all their active inquiries. The food packing sector has been badly hit and even pharmaceutical companies are running at reduced capacities due to which all our active projects have been postponed.” Bossar’s manufacturing plant near Pune was closed since the Covid-19 lockdown started in March and opened in May as it has many pharma clients. However, the company is maintaining its online and onsite service support to its customers.


Hand sanitizer packaging solution

As personal hygiene becomes a top priority for everyone around the world, the demand for sanitizing solutions has also gone up. To aid and strengthen the country’s fight against Covid-19, Bossar offers HFFS machines that are suitable for filling and packaging of hand wash and hand sanitizers. Waikar adds, “We are actively reaching out to our customers to offer our hand wash and hand sanitizer packing HFFS machines and also getting a good response for these.”


Bossar Packaging is a part of the Scholle IPN group, which offers complete integrated packaging solutions, including packaging material, spouts or caps, and packing machines. Bossar’s BMK 2000 L STU CV 2 HFFS machine for hand sanitizer applications includes key features such as a jacketed hopper to maintain the product temperature and a magnetic flowmeter with high accuracy. A special dropper spout application system, water chiller, automatic CIP (clean in process), vapor absorption system, and remote teleservice access are also part of the feature list.

Waikar asserts that Bossar’s packaging solutions are reliable, efficient, and equipped with advanced technology that offers perfect seal, flexible sanitary construction, and user-friendliness. All these features improve overall productivity and make Bossar a preferred choice.

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.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
