Husky Injection Molding Systems, a leading technology provider to the plastics processing community, exhibited at Gulfood Manufacturing in Dubai, UAE. Husky’s booth was showcasing the company’s latest innovative solutions enabling its customers to adapt to continuously changing consumer and market demands for food and beverage packaging.
“Husky understands that market conditions and consumer demands in the region are changing, having been particularly impacted over the last year by Covid-19,” said Wassim Labban, Husky’s Vice President, Rigid Packaging, EEMEIA, SEA, ANZ. “As a result, we have seen a number of trends emerging that have influenced consumer preferences, patterns of consumption, food safety, package optimisation and sustainability. We are excited to be back exhibiting at Gulfood Manufacturing to present how our solutions enable customers to not only adapt but thrive in today’s unprecedented global climate.”
To effectively respond to the various trends emerging out of Covid-19, producers have had to adopt flexible manufacturing processes that enable them to adapt to ongoing changes with speed and certainty. To help its customers achieve this, Husky has worked to provide integrated, agile solutions that offer the lowest total cost to produce, freedom in packaging design and reduced risk. At the show the company is showcasing its versatile PET systems and tooling portfolio covering all application and production needs, fully integrated beverage closure systems, and diverse packaging systems for the industrial, food and consumer goods markets.
Husky is also showcasing a wide range of food, beverage, and consumer goods applications that can be manufactured in PET. This includes applications produced using its Multi-Layer Technology, which is intended to enable packages with exciting design and functional treatments, as well as enhanced shelf appeal.
Demonstrating its commitment to sustainability and the circular economy, Husky is displaying packages produced with increased rPET content, lightweighted bottles, as well as tethered closure designs to meet various packaging legislation that is emerging around the world.
In addition to its suite of food and beverage packaging solutions, Husky offers global support in more than 40 countries and a range of services to keep customer equipment running at maximum efficiency.
