One print and packaging technique with which Bachhav is impressed is edible packaging. He says, “Edible packaging consists of thin layers of material that the consumer can eat as part of the whole food. It appropriately preserves the food. It is an eco-friendly technique for packaging.”

He believes everyone in our industry should know about softwares like Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw, Adobe Photoshop, CAD, PLM, and Six Sigma. When asked about his factory visit, he replies, “I visited the Parakh Agro’s flexible packaging factory. It has a unique set-up with a range of flexible, food, frame and baby care products along with printing and pouching.” He emphasises that the company works with multiple types of substrate such as poly, BOPP, and metPET. Bachhav says, “an eye opener”.

He says, “Since packaging is the way of communicating to all people, poor to rich, and educated to illiterate, it requires the most attention.”
