ITC to step up focus on sustainable packaging solutions

Nov 25 2020

ITC Paperboards and Speciality Papers Division of the ITC group, a leading manufacturer of packaging and graphic boards in South Asia, is laying special focus on the value-added paper packaging business and import substitution given the unfolding opportunities in new segments of the packaging business.
The focus is on sustainable packaging solutions with the development of innovative B2B value-added paperboards.
This range covers environmentally sustainable, recyclable and compostable materials. The new paperboards are emulsion-coated with a barrier that can withstand oil, grease and the strains of varying temperatures of take-away food.
Vadiraj Kulkarni, Divisional Chief Executive of ITC Paperboards and Specialty Papers Business, toldBusinessLinethat “ITC is focussing on import substitution, capacity building and process innovation to build a competitive value chain. We are working closely with the entire ecosystem, end-users and printers and converters to enable transition from single-use plastic substrates to sustainable packaging solutions.”
The business has introduced a ‘green stiffener’ to replace low-density polyethylene (LDPE) used in making antifungal soap wrap. This new product has effectively replaced the LDPE used by premium soap brands.
