[The Star] Daibochi to tap positive regional flexible packaging market
11 June 2012
KUALA LUMPUR: Daibochi Plastic and Packaging Industry Bhd, a flexible packaging solutions provider, is confident of tapping into the growing prospects for the segment in the regional market.
Managing Director Thomas Lim said there was tremendous potential in the regional Food and Beverage (F&B) market with multinational (MNC) manufacturers, increasingly sourcing their flexible packaging requirements from Asia.
“In recent months, we have witnessed an uptrend in the frequency of visits and requests for quotations from non-Asian MNCs, as the continent typically enjoys a lower cost of production.
“Recently, Daibochi was invited to participate in the Global Food Safety Panel of a leading MNC customer, placing us in the forefront of the latest sector updates and development in food safety management and regulations.
“Daibochi is the only South East Asian participant in the panel, reflecting its reputation in the region,” Lim said in a statement on Monday.
He said over the years, Daibochi had developed a track record in meeting stringent food safety requirements of regional MNC customers, and this has resulted in the F&B sector being the company’s stronghold customer segment.
Daibochi provides flexible packaging to globally-renowned multinational clients in the F&B and Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) sectors, including Nestle, Kraft and PepsiCo.
Lim said that moving forward, the company had also savoured initial success in securing business from the new sectors. “Since the first quarter of this year,
Daibochi has commenced supply of medical glove packaging, albeit on a small scale. At the same time, we are also undergoing continual testing and certification for our electronics packaging overseas,” he added.
