Thanking Masaki for his gesture for selecting Ludhiana for the project, Prof Kamal Chopra, General Secretary of Offset Printers Association (OPA) said that Ludhiana is known as the packaging capital of India, more than 87 percent printers out of 760 printers of the city are packaging printers.
While, Parveen Aggarwal, President of OPA said, it is a good opportunity, because now we are heading towards green environment and biodegradable material. “With the ban on the use of plastic envelopes, paper is the only alternative and there is great potential in paper bag making,” he said. He assured that they will discuss the proposal in length and will revert with optimistic solution.
