  Food Packaging     Ecommerce
  In a recently concluded ‘Digital Indo-Italian Business Mission on Food Processing’ organised by the Embassy of Italy and the CII, India invited Italy to invest in 42 mega food parks. India is promoting food processing and packaging in a big way by offering an incentive of $1 billion, with hope of leveraging another investment of $5 billion.     With rising growth of e-commerce and e-retailing globally and in India, transit packaging and omni-channel packaging are emerging as the most potential segments — maintaining safety, hygiene, and integrity of goods — and where the Indian packaging industry has considerable scope for expansion.

  E-commerce giant Amazon India recently announced that it has completely eliminated the use of single-use plastic in packaging across its 50-plus fulfilment centres. This was done by replacing the plastic dunnage — air pouches and bubble wrap placed inside packages — with recyclable paper cushions. They have also introduced 100 per cent plastic-free and biodegradable paper tape earlier this year, which is used to seal and secure the shipments.     Specialty Label Solution from Schreiner MediPharm Blinds Vials for Clinical Trial Conducted by CSL Behring.

Experts Opinion
"Sleeves are very important element while consumer use pack, at the same time must be recycle friendly. I practice 4R for “Holistic label design" (1) Reduce Material Usage (2) Improve Recyclability (3)Increase Recycled Content (4) Ask for Responsibly sourced. Requesting all the packaging professionals to consider the same while designing decoration, this will be our small contribution “to make sustainable living commonplace”
