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 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.
