  • Surya Global Flexifilms has a good plan – and does it together with Brückner


    Millions of Indians have grown up with Priyagold’s biscuits, chocolate, snacks and juices over the past years. To keep their fine specialties fresh and appetizing at all times, a wide variety of BOPP and BOPET films are in use. So the logical step was backward integration: producing and converting high-quality films for inhouse requirements and to serve domestic and export film markets. And thus, the Group subsidiary Surya Global Flexifilms ordered two BOPP lines from Brückner Maschinenbau.

    Shekhar Agarwal, Surya’s Chairman & Managing Director, says: “As a newcomer in film production we were looking for a partner with great experience, convincing technology and relevant references. All this we have found in Brückner – this already became clear during our first talks.”

    Johann Kreilinger, Head of Sales Brückner Maschinenbau, confirms the extremely constructive negotiating climate: “Both our Indian sales team and us from Germany have felt very comfortable in the discussions: our new partners are always well prepared and target-oriented. We are really looking forward to realize the projects.”

    Both BOPP lines (8.7 meter wide, one 3-layers, one 5-layers) will be placed at Surya’s new highly modern plant in the greater Nodia area, with excellent traffic connection to the Delhi-Agra/Lucknow expressway and the Delhi-Mumbai express. The first line will start mid 2022, the second one approx. one and half years later.

    With this acquisition, says LINHARDT CEO Johannes Schick, "LINHARDT will significantly strengthen its market position in the Pharmaceutical Alumiunium Tubes business unit."

  • SpotSee launches label to identify frozen food products


    US-based logistics and cold chain risk management system provider SpotSee has introduced a heat-sensitive label as part of its temperature monitoring solution portfolio.

    The Do Not Refreeze label is designed to maintain the quality and safety of fresh food products across the commercial food supply chain and ecosystem.

    The single-use label has been approved for indirect contact and can be pasted on a fresh food product’s packaging during production or before it is stored in a commercial freezer.

    It initially features light blue text to indicate that the product is yet to be frozen.

    After freezing below -15°C, the text on the label automatically and permanently shows ‘Do Not Refreeze’ in dark blue.

    This colour-changing technology is designed to allow food handlers to quickly identify temperature-sensitive products while handling large quantities of products.

    SpotSee temperature business director Reuben Isbitsky said: “It’s critical that food is properly transported and stored throughout the farm-to-fork supply chain to maintain integrity.

    “With the Do Not Refreeze label, food handlers are now able to identify if food products have been previously frozen and should not be refrozen in order to maintain the quality and safety of the product.”

    The Do Not Refreeze label comes with a chart to allow users to track the timelines of frozen products.

    SpotSee said that it will prove helpful for foodservice providers, caterers and food manufacturers by making them aware of and responsible for the food’s environment.

    Based in Dallas, Texas, SpotSee’s solutions and products are designed to help a range of customers detect changes in their products’ conditions.

    The company serves more than 4,500 customers and partners across 62 countries, operating six manufacturing plants.

    It provides solutions for the life sciences, energy, transportation, aerospace, defence, food, manufacturing and consumer products sectors.
