“New solutions for radical value”

The world is changing fast, which makes for exciting times! This is equally true for India, where I am based. By 2020, we will have the second largest middle-class population, and this means higher demand for plastics and packaging, which have a huge role to play in people’s lives.

With this growth comes the challenge of segregating and salvaging plastic waste; and our industry is responding in really innovative ways. The value chain coming together to develop and execute new ideas, materials, and processes that bring radical value to the market inspires me!

One of my most notable experiences is being a part of a team that introduced ELITETM AT in liquid packaging in India, where we brought a complete solution for brand owners who gained in cost savings, higher productivity, and waste reduction.

I’m proud to be ‘working on things that are working’, and being part of the innovative momentum.
