We embraced the ethos of information and knowledge sharing, giving birth to and issuing our inaugural newsletter in 2005 which is now called namasté packaging and circulated globally every week since then non stop 2. With unwavering conviction, we ventured into "offsite consulting," achieving success with a multinational project in 2007, and have continued delivering offsite packaging projects annually since. 3.

Recognizing the future potential of Internet and Content Marketing, we embarked on our first project in 2008. Today, the pervasive influence of social media extends across all spheres, including politics. 5. We challenged the norms of traditional packaging events with "Ideas & Opportunities," creating an unconventional gathering devoid of sponsors, chief guests, or external speakers. 6. With steadfast belief, we introduced packaging KPO, e-Learning in packaging, and email consulting services. 7. We dared to redefine packaging literature, publishing several books on "Innovation in Packaging." 8.
