Yash Pakka, which is a sustainable packaging solutions provider, has introduced a high-strength paper that will be utilized to make sustainable bags for e-commerce deliveries. The high-strength paper features high-burst factor and high-tearing strength properties, which makes it an optimal option for e-commerce deliveries.
Considering the growing focus on environmental protection, several e-commerce giants are making the switch from single-use plastics to paper for their packaging needs. However, the paper does not have the strength required to safely ship items.
“While e-commerce companies have displayed a propensity towards sustainable packaging, they do not have alternatives other than paper, which can be easily damaged during the transit. This is where our innovation comes into the picture,” Jagdeep Hira, Business Head at Yash Pakka, said.
The bags are created using bagasse sourced from sugar mills along with softwood imported from Sweden, Canada, and Finland. With one-side glazed, the high-quality paper makes for attractive printability for branding purposes.
"High-strength paper can be used to create high-quality safe bags that can cover long distances without damage to the bag or the product. We believe this will revolutionize packaging in the e-commerce space,” Hira added.
The company is currently producing 3400 MT/month to cater to the needs of its current market base comprising e-commerce bag manufacturing units in North India (Delhi-NCR). Going forward, the brand aims to expand its footprint for the high-strength paper to Maharashtra and Gujarat in the next 2-3 months while also foraying to the export market.
Yash Pakka Limited was founded in 1981 by KK Jhunjhunwala as Yash Papers Limited. Over the years, the company has transformed from a paper manufacturer to a sustainable packaging solutions provider. It works towards building a plastic-free future through its holistic approach. It has a strong business presence across 43 countries and aims to double its production capacity by 2023.
