Uflex Limited has commissioned its first liquid packaging facility at Sanand for an investment of Rs 5.8 billion.
The Indian packaging major, with the patent period for flexible liquid packaging ending, has commenced talks with major soft drink, juice and other FMCG players for supply.
The Sanand facility has an annual production capacity of seven billion packs. Ashwani Kumar Sharma, president & CEO (new business initiatives), Uflex Ltd, said, “We already package powder, semi-liquid (viscous), solids, semi-solids but not liquids so far.”
He added: “With Sanand, we have ventured into flexible liquid packaging. We waited for patent period to get over and this was the right time to enter. However, we have also brought in innovation in form of asepto holographic packaging.”
