Increased Costs Across the Supply Chain Due to Packing Material and Involved Processes are the Biggest Concerns say Top F&B Companies

GURGAON, India, January 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

"The greatest concerns today in F&B packaging is managing the increasing cost challenges across the supply chain due to packing material and involved processes" says Bimal Lakhotia (National Head - Packaging Development and Commercialisation, Hindustan Coca-Cola Beverages).

He further adds "An effective collaboration between F&B manufacturer and service providers/vendors will definitely help in eliminating various 'non-value add cost elements' from the chain. The model is effectively followed by automobile major. Further same will also facilitate new advancements in technology, application of best practices for a bigger benefit."

Prof CS Purushothaman (Chair Professor and Director, SIES School of Packaging) says "The latest trends in flexibles and rigids would be in active and intelligent packaging with sustainability focus."

He continues "Some of them are in flexible edible films, life extending packs with imbedded nano materials, oxygen and ethylene oxide scavengers as packaging components. In rigids there may not be so much push as sustainability is the word of the day. Hence keeping the 3 Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) in mind, flexibles will be preferred."

Both Mr Lakhotia and Prof Purushothaman will be sharing their views at the InnoPack F&B 2013 conference taking place from 27-28February at the DoubleTree by Hilton, Gurgaon, India.
