The FMCG market abounds with different kinds of powders. From spices, masalas, mil powder and flour, beverages like coffee and premixes to personal care products like talcum powder and tooth powder; from household products like detergent and bleach, powdered medicines and healthcare products like nutraceuticals, ORS, sweeteners and health drinks to chemicals like pesticides, fertilisers, powder coatings, etc. - we use and consume an endless list of powders in daily life.
It's obvious that with the current competition in the marketplace, manufacturing companies need to find a way to convey their powder product down the supply chain with safety, and deliver it to end-consumers with quality, hygiene and freshness.
They also need to make their brand more appealing and attractive on retail shelves. The exhausting process of manual packaging is slowly becoming obsolete as automated packaging machines provide a better way to package products.
How automated packaging machines benefit your business
Powder packaging machines can benefit your brand and business in different ways:
Improved brand value: Flexible packaging makes it easier to produce varied pouch formats and designs to make your brand stand out. After all, presentation and appeal on retail shelves is crucial for attracting potential consumers.
Extended shelf life: Powder packaging machines help protect and preserve the flavour and freshness of powder, which in turn increases product shelf life.
More reliability & functionality: Manual processes have their shortcomings. By automating the packaging process, different tasks like filling, capping, sealing and labelling are handled with speed and accuracy. Less human intervention reduces possibility of human errors. Automation ensures reliability and consistency of the powder packaging process.
Cost-effective production: While automated powder packaging machines involve a huge capital investment, in the long run, the machines will enable you to reach (and grow!) your production capacity faster. Labour costs will reduce and human errors will be eliminated.
