The company, through its brand CHUK, provides unique compostable food serviceware and delivery solutions made with natural elements such as sugarcane fibre.

Over the past few years, discussion and focus on environmental protection and carbon footprint reduction have increased exponentially. Several industry stakeholders, such as eCommerce giants and food tech companies have started taking conscious measures to switch from single-use plastics to more sustainable packaging materials.

In this context, Yash Pakka’s compostable division has been making significant waves as it ensures feasibility, durability, cost-effectiveness and long-term sustainability.

With Satish Chamyvelumani at the helm, Yash Pakka hopes to scale up as the most preferred compostable packaging partner globally.

Chamyvelumani comes with more than 20 years of experience in the product, packaging and food space. After completing his Masters in manufacturing technology from the New Jersey Institute of Technology, he started working as a manufacturing engineer at Cuno Incorporated. Later in 2003, he started working at 3M, an industrial machinery manufacturer, and spent a decade working on innovative product development. After returning to India, he started his entrepreneurial stint with Atchayam’s Foodbox in 2013 and then established Frshly in 2016. In 2020, he co-founded Real Sports. His in-depth knowledge of the manufacturing and packaging industry, all-inclusive experience and matchless leadership qualities in scaling up businesses make him the perfect leader for Yash Pakka’s compostables division.

Ved Krishna, vice-chairman, Yash Pakka, said, “Gradually, industries worldwide are making conscious efforts to innovate product development and packaging and making it sustainable to effectively reduce their carbon footprint. At Yash Pakka, we assist companies through innovative, durable and affordable options. Now, as we gear up to expand our presence in the global market, we are delighted to have an industry veteran like Satish Chamyvelumani to take the reins of business growth in his hands. With him onboard, we are sure that Yash Pakka’s compostables division will reach new heights.”

Chamyvelumani added, “I am thrilled to commence a brand-new innings with Yash Pakka and help companies and stakeholders to make informed and purposeful decisions concerning environmental protection. We will work harder than before to make compostable food packaging solutions as the preferred option in this conventional and outdated ecosystem.”
