New Delhi, Delhi, India and Florida, United States

The latest feather in the organization’s cap is Gold Flexible Packaging Achievement Award 2016 in the Printing, Shelf Impact and Packaging Excellence categories that have been conferred to Uflex’s KOHINOOR Anti-Slip Bag Package by Flexible Packaging Association.

Pairing this award is yet another accolade – Silver Flexible Packaging Achievement Award 2016 in the Technical Innovation category that went to BIRLA WHITE WALLCARE WPP Bag, yet another superior product by Uflex.

KOHINOOR Anti-Slip Bag Packagefor the European Market is a unique solution for premium rice packaging for reasons more than one. It is one of the first large bags to be made from Stackable Matt BOPP high Seal Initiation Temperature (SIT) and has the optimum strength to hold weight as high as 10 to 40 LB. This challenging film was developed in-house by Uflex. Nano perforation has been provisioned for in this bag that helps in de-aeration and ensures that the pouch does not blot after filling and hence sits well on the pallets. One way Nano perforation does not allow any contamination. This is a very unique technology developed by Uflex. Both stackable BOPP and friction created by Nano perforation make the bag anti-skid and, therefore, alleviates the use of anti-slip sheets while palletizing, thereby reducing the secondary packaging cost. High-resolution printing and superior graphics on the bag help it to stand out and get noticed on the retail shelf.

Registered gussets are a very special feature of this bag. The bag can be stacked both horizontally and vertically helping in optimum utilization of expensive retail shelf space, without compromising on brand visibility. Further, a soft rope handle makes it very convenient for the consumers to carry the bag.

Birla White Wall Care WPP Bag is a premium non-moisture ingress pack for packaging granular/powder building materials. This packaging has been especially engineered to address chronic problems that the building material industry has been grappling for long. This packaging provides:

Top of the line aesthetics;
Anti-counterfeiting features that prevent look-alikes from eroding the brand equity;
Ingress barrier to moisture protecting product loss;
Protection from wastage due to damage and tear during transit;
Occupational health and safety of workers.

Two rather dichotomous requirements have been impeccably addressed by Uflex while designing this bag. De-aeration holes have been provisioned for the air to escape during the filling process yet prohibiting moisture from entering into the bag thereby helping the building material withstand harsh environment and maintain its full functionality over an extended shelf life.

On being conferred with these coveted awards, Mr. Ashok Chaturvedi, Chairman & Managing Director, Uflex Limited said, “Flexible Packaging Achievement (FPA) Awards are a hallmark of excellence for 60 years now.
