Yash Pakka, India's leading sustainable packaging solutions provider, has introduced 'high strength paper', which will be utilised to make sustainable bags for e-commerce deliveries. The reliable paper features high burst factor and high tearing strength properties, making it an optimal option for e-commerce deliveries where the safety of the contents within the packages is crucial.
Considering the growing focus on environmental protection, several e-commerce giants switch from single-use plastics to paper for their packaging needs. However, the paper does not have the strength required to safely ship items. Yash Pakka's cutting-edge high strength paper checks all the boxes in durability and is a long-term option for brands.
The bags are created using bagasse sourced from sugar mills and softwood imported from Sweden, Canada, and Finland. With one side glazed, the high-quality paper makes for attractive printability for branding purposes.
Sustainable Packaging Needs
Speaking on the launch, Jagdeep Hira, Business Head at Yash Pakka, said, "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. 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 revolutionise packaging in the e-commerce space."
The company is currently producing 3400 MT per month to cater to the needs of its current market base comprising e-commerce bag manufacturing units in North India (Delhi-NCR). In the future, the brand aims to expand its footprint for high strength paper to Maharashtra and Gujarat in the next 2-3 months while also foraying to the export market.
