Giulio Bellanti, Sidel Director of Sales for Food, Home and Personal Care for Middle East, Africa and India, explains, “Regarding the markets we serve, I clearly see a positive trajectory in India. Namely, we are noticing that the dressing and sauce players are increasingly packaging their products in PET, benefitting from the transparency, design flexibility and 100% recyclability offered by this material. BL Agro is one of our customer successes in the industry of edible oil in the region. Furthermore, our long-standing packaging expertise is increasingly proving key to win preference from local converters, active in the beverage as well as in the food, home and personal care categories.”
Rohit continues, “Looking into the future, we also see that the dairy market in the country is significantly growing due to the introduction of many new products, such as flavoured and UHT milk, milk mixed with fruits, cereal, nuts and spices, and special dietary products containing high protein, low fat and less added sugar. As the market leader in aseptic PET and especially for Liquid Dairy Products (LDP), Sidel is uniquely positioned to support this rising demand thanks to our more than 40 years of PET packaging expertise as well as our complete, safe and simple packaging line solutions, including the FDA-approved Sidel Aseptic Combi Predis™. Beyond the dairy sector, we are witnessing opportunities also in the bottled water and juice segments.”
Providing value to customers for all packaging needs
Producers of fast moving consumer goods (FMCG), food and beverages need complete packaging solutions that guarantee performance across the entire supply chain. Sidel ensures this by delivering quality, reliability, predictability and flexibility together with the smallest possible environmental impact and low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
“We believe India to be a very important growth market for us and as a result we are continuing to invest heavily in our operations here. We have a commitment to the country and the region in providing value to our customers for all of their packaging needs and supporting them on their journey of continuous development,” concludes Rohit.
