Making the Packaging System Fit the Circular Economy

For the packaging industry to achieve a sustainable future, it needs to dramatically increase circularity and the reuse of materials. While shifting from a linear economy to a circular model will take time, there are already actions that brands, manufacturers, and converters can already take to help make a difference. This document by Siegwerk – a global leader in inks and coatings for packaging – delves into solving the plastic paradox, looks at the relevance of bioplastics, and sets out ways to not only achieve circularity in packaging but also make it economically viable. Furthermore, the document goes into detail on how printing inks and coatings are vital for enabling circularity in packaging. Ultimately, the packaging system needs to be reconfigured for a circular future. And consumers are expecting the packaging industry to play its part in progress.

As part of the investment deal, VOF will offer $17m for an undisclosed stake and will receive two positions on the board.

VOF managing director Andy Ho said: “Ngoc Nghia is the perfect example of a market-leading company we like to invest in. It is well-established and serves some of the sectors that are benefitting from Vietnam’s strong domestic consumption story.

“Its management team is experienced and recognises the need to innovate into new areas such as packaging for milk and alcoholic beverages.

“They evolve with the market, which is why they have invested in advanced equipment and have a strong commitment to research and development, focused on minimising environmental impact. We look forward to working with them to take their company to its next stage of growth.”

Ngoc Nghia chief executive officer La Bui Hong Ngoc said: “As we looked at expanding our manufacturing capabilities, as well as our market penetration, particularly in northern Vietnam, we considered a range of financing options.

“Ultimately, we determined that VinaCapital’s strong track record of private equity investing provided not just the capital we need but also a partner with the experience that will enable us to meet our long-term business objectives.”

Ngoc Nghia produces preforms, bottles, and closures across three manufacturing facilities with an annual capacity of 3.7 billion.

The company is based in Ho Chi Minh City. It expects to generate $74m in revenue this year from its core PET business.

Ngoc Nghia provides services to various international and domestic clients, including Unilever, Coca-Cola, Pepsi and Vinamilk.
