One of the most evident responsibilities of packing is to protect the goods throughout transit from the manufacturer to the retailer. As the product lies on store shelves, waiting for customers to buy it, packaging serves as a type of protection. Packaging is the ‘dress’ on the product in marketing and market development, and it can influence whether the product sells in a new market or to new clients.

First impressions are crucial, and packaging is the consumer’s first encounter with your product. Thus, manufacturers place significant importance on product packaging. Packaging goes a long way toward establishing a positive first impression and fostering long-term brand loyalty. Brands are identified just by looking at the packaging. Because of these reasons, the packaging industry got a boost and is evolving with time to provide a package that protects the product and makes it look appealing as well.

Om Gajanan Packaging counts among one such company that has created a mark on the packaging space with its quintessential services.

Hence no need to change the machine,” adds Vilas.

Also, this fractional increase will encourage people to buy these without pinching their pockets along with preserving jobs and creating value addition to the product.
