Elopak and GLS have launched a joint venture GLS Elopak, headquartered in Gurugram, Haryana, India, leveraging the respective expertise, assets and networks to capitalize on the significant consumer demand in India.

The company was established to manufacture and process high-quality fresh and aseptic packaging designed to ensure that liquid food is safe and accessible to consumers across the globe. The company will cater to both fresh and aseptic segments with dairy, plant-based drinks, juice, water, and liquor applications.

The joint venture aligns with Elopak’s ambitions to expand geographically and meet the rising demand for sustainable packaging. With its manufacturing hub close to Delhi at Rewari in Haryana, India, GLS Elopak will be the only producer of fiber-based packaging for liquid food in the Haryana area. 

‘We are delighted to announce this latest exciting step in our journey as we look to deliver on our growth strategy,’ commented Elopak’s CEO Thomas Körmendi. ‘India is the world’s biggest milk market, with serious growth potential. Together with GLS, there is an opportunity for us to be at the forefront of offering innovative and sustainable packaging solutions to this market that protect both the product and the environment.

‘GLS ’s innovative methods and state-of-the-art processes are impressive, and we look forward to working with them closely through GLS Elopak to capitalize on this opportunity to meet growing demand.’

‘We are elated to announce our strategic partnership with Elopak,’ added GLS director Arpit Goyal. ‘We strongly believe that the capabilities and synergies between the two organizations and the shared vision of the management will result in a leading liquid packaging company in India, which is both sustainable and innovative in its approach.

‘Given the growth potential in India and the need for alternative packaging solutions, especially in the fresh milk and water segment, GLS Elopak will be able to add value and contribute to the country in the best possible manner.’
