Avery Dennison is said to have achieved another market first with the launch of a new certified portfolio of vegan labels, which contain no animal-derived components. Additionally, every item in the portfolio was created without animal testing or the use of GMOs of animal origin. Because of this, the collection has received approval from EVE VEGAN, an independent organization created by Vegan France, which works to promote vegan alternatives in different industries, including food and medicine.

At the time of launch, there are six paper facestocks, three adhesives, and two liners in the collection, and they can be mixed and matched according to customer needs. Each item offers a similar level of performance to non-vegan alternatives in both converting and application. Based on the converter and end-user needs, there are plans to expand the range with new paper facestocks.Avery Dennison (AD)

“Veganism goes beyond diet,” says Luuk Zonneveld, product manager at Avery Dennison. “It’s a philosophy and way of life centered on avoiding animal exploitation for food, clothing, and everything else you can think of. Naturally, this extends into the world of packaging, and we’re excited to help brand owners take their dedication to be cruelty-free to the next level with these innovative labels developed by our R&D team.”

Suitable for the beauty, wine and spirits, and food and beverage sectors, the new labels also serve as a unique selling point for brands. Thanks to the certification, companies can let consumers know their entire purchase – packaging included – abides by their values.

“We’re very proud to have received Eve Vegan certification and consider it a powerful symbol that lets brand owners, and their customers, know we take our commitments seriously,” says Luuk.

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 growing 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!
