Mumbai-based Kunal Enterprises endorsed its new alliance with Toppan Printing,
Japan and showcased their assortment of products including the EP-Pak at Pamex
2015. Kunal Gandhi, executive to president, Kunal Enterprises, said, “The EP-Pak is a seven-layer paper liquid container with film barrier for a long life of products. With its outstanding content preservation properties, EP-Pak enables long-term storage at room temperature. Full-surface printing enhances the look of the pack. The distinguishing feature of the seven-layer film is that it is without an aluminium foil. Hence, it is easy to dispose
and even metal detectors can be used on production lines to check for foreign objects inside the pack.
Kunal Enterprises is a one-stop solution for press and prepress solutions in screen printing and offset printing. The company also showcased Sakurai’s fully automatic cylinder, flatbed and roll-to-roll cylinder screen printing machine through illustrations for printing of applications like electronics and industrial labels. “Various applications can be done by a
Sakurai machine as a value addition to commercial, packaging and publishing printers to get amazing effects with the help of UV including 3D effects with optically clear varnish and glitter UV among others,” said Gandhi. Speciality screen inks, 3Dsoftware and lenticular lens for printing, 3D solutions and 3D effects by micro array dots lens sheets for flexible circuits, membrane switches and RFID were other products displayed at the company stand.

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.
