Can you let us know your plans/strategies for serving the food industry in the coming days?
As far as food industry is concerned, packaging has become a necessity today and there is always going to be demand for packaging from businesses serving the food industry. Hence, we are confident of achieving strong growth in this segment in the coming days.
What are some of the challenges that your business has been facing in recent times?
While the Government has introduced laws and regulations for the food industry, there has been a lack of awareness among stakeholders on many of the regulations. This has sometimes created an element of fear and has in turn affected businesses such as ours. So, there is a necessity to increase awareness among the stakeholders, who must be informed of what is required to be done specifically and what must be done by them to solve all the problems.
Lastly, will you tell us about your future plans?
We have basically been doing our R&D on specific innovations. As on date, we have completed our R&D on 3D pouches. Further, we have also completed the installation of machines for producing these pouches and are also hoping to achieve a capacity of approximately 140-150 tons per month soon.
