Nuvae Healthcare

Vienna headquartered Constantia Flexibles with a new recyclable flexible packaging plant in Ahmedabad in Western India has partnered Nuvae Healthcare located in Ahmedabad for Gosan hand sanitzer packed in EcoLam Plus small packs.

Nuvae Healthcare’s mission is to inspire a healthy and hygienic living with convenience with a committment to maintaining the highest standards of quality and consistency. This is why Nuvae Healthcare handcrafts one of its most important products the Gosan hand sanitizer in small batches. Gosan is an easy-to-use 70% alcohol-based hand sanitizer for water-free cleansing especially useful in these times, facing a pandemic, to keep hands clean at all times. The main purpose of the hand sanitizer is to support people to live a healthy and hygienic life, free from germs and illness. For this reason, Nuvae and Constantia Flexibles joined forces for a completely recyclable packaging made of EcoLamPlus.

EcoLamPlus laminate is one of Constantia Flexibles’ products in the monopolymer EcoLam packaging family based on PE. It can replace non-recyclable multipolymer structures where water vapor and oxygen barrier are needed, and also helps to sustain highly volatile products like alcohol. EcoLamPlus is a flexible packaging that is completely recyclable. Constantia Flexibles and Nuvae Healthcare cooperate closely to ensure the hand sanitizer remains efficient while the packaging remains recyclable.

“It’s a huge honour for us to partner with Nuvae Healthcare as our valued customer and to package their outstanding product, Gosan Hand Sanitizer, with our recyclable EcoLamPlus laminates. Health and safety is one of our key pillars and that’s why Nuvae Healthcare is such a strong partner for us,” says Tony Sirohi, executive chairman, Constantia Flexibles India, and adds, “We are glad to have this successful and sustainable venture. Looking forward to further joint projects.”

“We are very proud of our unique formula of Gosan. It revolutionizes personal hygiene by making it simple and highly effective. Gosan products are paraben free, cruelty free, and vegan. The health and wellbeing of all people is our first priority. Therefore, it makes sense to also use packaging that is fully recyclable, just like EcoLam Plus. It’s a perfect combination of protecting the environment and our customers,” explains Utsavi Parekh, director, Nuvae Healthcare.

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.
