UFlex Limited has launched a packaging solution called ‘Asepto Eye’, a ripple concave lens and single lens technology that gives 3-D effects on aseptic packs. The lenses come in various sizes, shapes and designs, as per customer requirements.

The product was launched at the 2019 Dubai GulFood Manufacturing exhibition. Speaking there, CEO and President of Aseptic Liquid Packaging Business at UFlex Ltd. Ashwani Sharma said: “Asepto Eye is truly revolutionary in all respects and will change the concept of beverage packaging for years to come. The effect of this technology on packaging is unprecedented and offers myriad choices to manufacturers to be distinct on the shelves, and also add a premium value to their brand through our packaging.”
