Our group is keen to refresh the packaging of our products as an attractive packaging generates strong appeal to customers. I am visiting Hong Kong International Printing & Packaging Fair for the first time to find new packaging idea and new suppliers. There are a lot of good packaging items here.

“Beijing Dao Xiang Cun is a long-established brand of traditional Chinese pastries that was first established in 1895. We currently operate a chain of 189 stores in Beijing selling over 600 kinds of pastries and cakes as well as festival items like sticky rice dumpling (zongzi) and moon cakes. Our pastries and prepared food are also sold in supermarkets and food outlets. This is my first-time visit to Hong Kong International Printing & Packaging Fair to source new packaging solutions for our products. The business matching service provided by the organiser has helped me identify potential suppliers effectively. I have got in touch with an exhibitor from Shenzhen who produces a unique inflatable packaging bag. This void-fill design is suitable for the packaging of our pastries that are fragile and require extreme care in the processing of delivery. The potential order will involve at least 100,000 pieces if negotiation is successful. Talks are also underway with a supplier of packaging strings and ribbons from Xiamen. This fair has a lot on offer, featuring some interesting packaging ideas and enabling fruitful exchanges with exhibitors.”
Fu Huaping, Head of Sales Department, Beijing Dao Xiang Cun, the Chinese mainland

The flexo plate procession machine costs about US$3,000. The cutting machine costing about HK$18,000 will be used to cut boxes and printed stickers for our packaging items.

We are now expanding our sales to retailers and supermarkets. Some noodles will be packed in gift boxes for tourists. That’s why I am visiting Hong Kong International Printing & Packaging Fair this year to find more printing and packaging solutions as well as special plastic materials. I have got in touch with two printing design companies at the fair. Talks are underway a Chinese mainland exhibitor to source packaging boxes. We will provide detailed requirements after the exhibition so that the mainland company can work out the design of boxes as soon as possible. We spend at least US$100,000 on printing design every year. This is a great fair with good atmosphere.”
Chong Yew Kee, Director, Hiap Giap Food Manufacture Pte Ltd, Singapore


“LG Household & Health Care sells a comprehensive range of lifestyle and everyday products from household cleaning to personal care, skin care, cosmetics and beverages. I am visiting Hong Kong International Printing & Packaging Fair for the first time to look for new printing technology and packaging designs. Eco-friendly packaging products and materials are also potential items on our sourcing list. An innovative 3D printing equipment provided by a Taiwanese exhibitor looks very interesting and the boxes printed out can be used to keep our skin care and cosmetics products. I have also got in touch with a Chinese mainland supplier for a special plastic bag fitted with a creative screw top. I have collected a lot of information and will discuss with colleagues in Korea’s head office about these products. The potential amount of orders is about US$50,000. This is a great fair. I can see the latest printing and packaging trends all under one roof.”
