A bit about your recent innovations for the F&B Industry.

We consider ourselves to be a Make in India company. Almost every top player in the F&B Industry continue to be our customer even today. As far as innovations are concerned, we had recently entered into a JV with an Italian company called V-Shapes and have been importing their packaging machines. We have developed a Single-portion sachet which is like a snap and squeeze. Normally, we have come across many pouches in the market, such as a tomato ketchup or a shampoo pouch which is tough to tear. Many a time, there are chances of the sauce or shampoo spilling over the clothes or on the table. Keeping this in mind, we have introduced this solution, which is just a simple snap and squeeze that individuals are required to do using their 3 fingers. Our Single portion sachet is our latest innovation and it only requires a person to snap and squeeze and users can easily open and dispense the contents. The Single-use sachet can contain from 1ml to 30ml of product, depending on the size chosen.

How do you plan to promote your latest innovation/solution in the market

We have a massive strength of over 100 sales staff that follow-up on the leads and regularly meets the customers to promote all our major 4 brands in the market.

Control Print annually participates in over 30-40 Trade Fairs and Events to showcase our different brands and promote our marking and coding solutions. Additionally, we do participate and take centre stage in Industry based symposiums and conduct webinars to discuss the new emerging trends and technology in Coding and Marking solutions.
