The ProPak India 2022, the pre-eminent exhibition of process and packaging technologies for the food, beverage, pharmaceutical and cosmetics sectors, began this morning (21 September 2022) at the International Exhibition Centre (BIEC) in Bangalore and will run from to 23 September.
Ucima, in collaboration with the Italian Trade Agency ITA, will take part in the event with an Italian Pavilion hosting a delegation of 8 companies – Alcos, Cavanna, Delfin, Finpac Sleeve, Ica, Omas Tecnosistemi, Sacmi Imola and Zanasi.
It is a strategic exhibition in a region that offers enormous potential. International analysts are predicting that India will see an annual real GDP growth of more than 6%. Amid surging per capita income, a stronger focus on quality, a growing export propensity and a policy aimed at drastically reducing agricultural waste, India is renewing and expanding its processing and packaging technologies and is looking to Italy as a partner capable of offering the quality and guarantees it needs.
“Returning to ProPak India as a normal in-person event is a very important opportunity for our association,” commented Riccardo Cavanna, chairman of Ucima. “The Asian market has always been a major focus for companies in our industry, and the Indian market in particular has seen remarkable growth in recent years. We are proud to be able to represent Italy once again on this international stage.”
Packaging South Asia and IndiFoodBev are also taking part in the event with our magazines and team available at our Stand Q62 in Hall 4. Please contact our Mumbai correspondent Shardul Sharma (+91 98206 35183) for coverage.
