ProAmpac, which leads in flexible packaging and material sciences, has recently sponsored the SPC Engage 2022. The company offers eco-friendly flexible packing in five product groups which are mentioned below.

  • ProActive Recyclable is a flexible packing created for polyethene and paper recycling streams.
  • ProActive Recycle Ready is created for advanced recycling processes and uses a mono-material structure.
  • ProActive PCR blends post-consumer recycled materials into the packing to meet the brand durability factors and policy requirements, such as the UK Plastics Packaging Tax.
  • ProActive Renewable packaging uses bio-based resins.
  • ProActive Compostable reduces in an organic compost environment.

SPC Engage Montreal is an event covering several sustainable packaging aspects, including panels with the top industry leaders.

ProAmpac’s sustainability approach for different products

ProAmpac’s flexible packaging provides customers with easy storage, extended shelf life, and portability and helps reduce energy consumption and its effect on the environment during transportation. Its products are made from bio-based feedstock like sugarcane or corn and are suitable for all market products like food and beverage, pet foods, and treats.

Sai Pellingra, vice president of global applications and innovation in the company, one of the speakers on the panelists for the topic ‘The Role of Collective Commitments’ said, “Collaborative packaging innovation focuses on creative, functional design and user experience, but also needs to make progress toward a circular economy to bring the next generation of sustainable packaging to life. We’re highlighting how our design, collaboration, and innovation resources combined with our ProActive sustainability platform help brands meet sustainability goals in creative and meaningful ways.”

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!
