Ved Bachhav: Since packaging is the way of communicating to all people, poor to rich, and educated to illiterate, it requires the most attention

The joint-winner in the student of the year category was Ved Vikas Bachhav, who is currently pursuing bachelor’s of engineering in printing. He believes that the packaging industry needs environmentally-friendly products that are 100% recyclable.

One print and packaging technique with which Bachhav is impressed is edible packaging. He said, “Edible packaging consists of thin layers of material that the consumer can eat as part of the whole food. It appropriately preserves the food. It is an eco-friendly technique for packaging.”

He strongly believes everyone in our industry should know about softwares like Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw, Adobe Photoshop, CAD, PLM, and Six Sigma. When asked about his factory visit, he replied, “I visited Parakh Agro’s flexible packaging factory. It has a unique set-up with a range of flexible, food, frame and baby care products along with printing and pouch-making.” He emphasised that the company works with multiple types of substrate such as poly, BOPP, and metPET. Bachhav says, “an eye opener”.

He said, “Since packaging is the way of communicating to all people, poor to rich, and educated to illiterate, it requires the most attention.”
