UPM Raflatac to exhibit at stand M10, Labelexpo India

Labeling innovations meet sustainability


UPM Raflatac’s international team of experts will be present to showcase innovative labeling products at Labelexpo India 2018, which will be held from 22-25 November at India Expo Centre & Mart in Greater Noida.

UPM Raflatac will promote its Forest Positive RAFNXT+ range which covers a wide variety of applications from labeling packaged food to labels used in retail. The RAFNXT+ range has a carbon potential that is up to 20% more carbon positive than standard paper labels. The raw material efficiency brings reductions in energy, water use and waste. The RAFNXT+ range comes exclusively from certified, sustainably managed forests.

PP Lite and PE, the thinner and resource-efficient film, are examples of sustainable product design. RafBio PE on the other hand is made from bio-based sources but offers similar properties as fossil-based PE films. Label converters can enjoy more labels per roll and longer roll lengths, therefore providing higher efficiency with less down time. It also reduces transportation and packaging costs at several stages in the operational process.
The visitors will see a wide range of specialize labeling solutions for food, beverage, home and personal care, pharmaceutical or beyond at UPM Raflatac at stand M10 in hall 5 at Labelexpo India.

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.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
