With agriculture as the backbone
of the Egyptian economy and one
of the world’s fastest growing
populations, the demand for food
and beverages, and their packaging,
continues to escalate. It’s important
to note that more than half of the 90
million citizens are younger than 25
years old. This younger generation
embraces a more modern lifestyle,
increasing the demand for flexible,
functional, on-the-go packaging.
Another consideration is the change
in modern retailing formats—with
a steady shift from small grocery
shops to supermarkets and now,
even hypermarkets.
As the leading BOPP film
manufacturer in the country,
Egypt is fully geared up to serve
this rapidly expanding market.
We are boosting our local market
distribution by adding value-
added programs like rolling stock
arrangements and other premium
models that allow converters to
take advantage of short-notice
availability and other flexible
service arrangements. Through
responsiveness to our clients and
innovative packaging solutions and
service, we will ensure our leadership
position in this growing region.

Africa embraces LGL for
wraparound labeling
The labels and packaging markets
are growing exponentially across
Africa, driven by population growth,
urbanization and increasing GDP
rates. A good example of this
is in the soft drink sector. New
bottling facilities are being installed
throughout the continent, especially
in the eastern, central and western
regions. New lines designed for high-
speed reel fed labelling require a
versatile film that runs on all labelers
with optimum performance.
LGL film is ideal for these
applications, as it delivers
consistent slip and
controlled static properties with
various printing technologies—
including rotogravure, conventional
and UV flexography, and offset. LGL
is a white voided wraparound label
film with pearlescent aesthetics and
high gloss on both sides, as well
as high yield. LGL is available in 38
micron and 47 micron thicknesses.
No wonder sales have grown in Africa
and throughout the world.
