Packaging South AsiaGreen and brown — This issue of Packaging South Asia has a brown and green theme. We wanted to talk about the environment issues concerning flexible packaging in light of the PackTech India exhibition and the 3rd Speciality Films & Flexible Packaging Global Conference in Mumbai. These events have started attracting global industry leaders and, increasingly, apart from the technology agenda, the discussion must focus on the environmental impact of packaging and especially flexible packaging since it is ubiquitous and fast growing in our country and region.
