Eka Global emerged as one of the world’s leading longevity packaging producers after Thailand-based plastic container manufacturer Eka Pak acquired Printpack Asia in late 2019. The transaction has boosted Eka’s annual production capacity to 2.5-billion pieces and has enabled the company to have access to an expanded network of production facilities in India and China.

Chaiwat Nantiruj, Group CEO, Eka Global, said, “We have observed a new trend. Since the world is fighting against Covid-19 and a lot of people stay at home, they need more ready-to-eat meals. With this trend, we have seen our total sales increased by 100% in the first quarter this year compared to the same period last year.”

With this, consumers and governments have realised the importance of high quality food packaging that can keep the food inside as good as it is freshly cooked. This will accelerate acceptance of longevity packaging in the coming years. “We are producing innovative longevity packaging that allows food manufacturers to extend some ready-to-eat food product shelf life up to two years,” Nantiruj said.
