About us

Our mission is to

  • Provide advertisers with a medium through which they can be totally confident of reaching precisely the category of readers who are likely to be interested in and therefore likely to purchase their products or services.

Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCGs) are products that enjoy fast turnover at relatively low cost. Importantly, FMCGs have to be suitably and economically packaged, yet in an eye-catching way for maximum impact on retail shelves. Clearly this a major market for the packaging industry; and the relationship between processing and packaging is closely intertwined.

So, each month FMCG-PACK will bring readers news of processing and packaging developments in the food and beverage industries, the pharma and cosmetics industries, and other FMCG categories.
