Joint President-Packaging and New Product Development at Uflex Jeevaraj Pillai says, “Edible oil needs to be carefully protected from oxygen that makes it rancid. Barrier properties in a coextruded film for edible-oil packaging are imparted by Nylon and/or EVOH. However, it is the presence of these two elements that makes the packaging of edible-oil non-reprocessable. We at Uflex have developed a specialized formulation that renders barrier packaging for edible-oil re-processable despite the presence of Nylon and/or EVOH.
"Now, edible-oil manufacturers need not worry and can easily fulfill their recyclability commitments by using barrier packaging having our formulation. According to data from market research firm Euromonitor International, the edible-oil category, which had overtaken dairy to become the largest packaged food segment in our country a few years ago, grew at 25.6 % to cross the Rs. 1.3 trillion mark in 2017. In fact, edible oil formed over 30% of the Rs 4.34 trillion packaged foods market in India. Thus the potential is huge, and we are fully ready to cater to the flexible-packaging requirements of all edible-oil players in the country and overseas in a sustainable manner.”
