Essentra Packaging will unveil its latest pharmaceutical packaging solutions that provide supply chain agility and sustainability benefits on stand 6B30 at CPhI worldwide in Milan between 9-11 November 2021.

Whether pharmaceutical companies are looking to reduce their carbon footprint and minimize material usage, use only FSC content and replace plastic materials, or reduce packing time and maximize machine efficiencies, Essentra Packaging’s experts will be on hand to discuss the options available. 

A complete range of eco-friendly packaging innovations will be on display, highlighting Essentra’s carton, label, and leaflet solutions that enable companies to meet their sustainability goals while also achieving high levels of patient safety and production line efficiency. The highly visual and engaging stand will be decorated with Essentra products to emphasize this connection. 

Essentra Packaging ComboPack will be on display

Solutions on display include ComboPack, which loads cartons on the packing line with secondary packaging material, such as a leaflet, already inserted, thereby maximizing speed and efficiency. Whereas increasingly, the incorporation of additional items into a folding carton is carried out manually, ComboPack inserts materials at the gluing station as an integral part of the manufacturing process. This reduces the complexity of the operation and allows production to be planned more efficiently, thus increasing overall efficiencies and security through avoidance of potential packing errors. 

In addition, the Essentra Packaging stand will highlight the key role of the company’s Innovation Hub in helping customers improve the sustainability of their packaging through advice on areas such as pack design, material selection, and manufacturing process

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 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.
