The flagship award ceremony is a prestigious industry recognition event, where hundreds of new technologies and products are nominated across numerous award categories, with participation from the best of the flexible packaging industry.

Siegwerk India was awarded for two of its best-in-class products — the food-safe, glow in the dark inks for product differentiation, and the NC-free inks for pharmaceutical packaging applications.

The nominations from across the value chain in flexible packaging were evaluated by the panel of experts and these two were chosen as the best in raw materials under the innovation/creativity category.

Ramakrishna Karanth, CEO, Siegwerk India, said, “It is a distinct honour to be recognised by IFCA and the flexible packaging industry for our new products. With IFCA 2021 observing an intense competition, this is a welcome recognition of our efforts and a delightful way to end 2021. We are looking forward to delivering more innovation-backed disruptive solutions to the national and global packaging industries in 2022.”
