Cel­e­brat­ing col­lab­o­ra­tion in plas­tic food pack­ag­ing

Kuwait Times - - FROM THE ARABIC PRESS -

The Kuwait Foun­da­tion for the Ad­vance­ment of Sciences (KFAS), EQUATE Petro­chem­i­cal Com­pany, Amer­i­cana Meat Clus­ter and Plas­tic In­dus­tries Com­pany (PIC) cel­e­brated their col­lab­o­ra­tion for an ad­vanced so­lu­tion in plas­tic food pack­ag­ing.

The col­lab­o­ra­tion in­volved a part­ner­ship among KFAS, EQUATE, Amer­i­cana Meat Clus­ter and PIC (a lo­cal plas­tic man­u­fac­turer) to de­vise an op­ti­mal so­lu­tion in plas­tic food pack­ag­ing. The so­lu­tion was de­vel­oped based on plas­tic raw ma­te­rial pro­duc­tion, film con­ver­sion and food pack­ag­ing. The re­sults in­cluded de­vel­op­ing and en­hanc­ing the food pack­ag­ing plas­tic prop­er­ties through EQUATE’s Re­search and De­vel­op­ment (R&D) Cen­ter.

KFAS Di­rec­tor-General Dr Ad­nan Shi­habEldin said, “KFAS be­lieves that in­no­va­tion and R&D are es­sen­tial for the growth of the pri­vate sec­tor’s sci­en­tific and tech­ni­cal ca­pac­i­ties that are needed to build a knowl­edge econ­omy. KFAS es­tab­lished pro­grams to help com­pa­nies achieve such ca­pac­i­ties. We have been utiliz­ing our con­tacts with lo­cal, re­gional and in­ter­na­tional en­ti­ties to find the best tech­nol­ogy and knowl­edge providers that can as­sist the com­pa­nies in iden­ti­fy­ing the tech­nol­ogy suit­able for their busi­nesses. Last year we in­tro­duced both EQUATE and Amer­i­cana to the Ger­man In­sti­tutes in hope that they find new tech­nolo­gies that can be of value to both com­pa­nies in­di­vid­u­ally. Fur­ther­more we co-funded fea­si­bil­ity stud­ies for both com­pa­nies. . KFAS is pleased to be the cat­a­lyst that ac­ti­vated the co­op­er­a­tion be­tween EQUATE, Amer­i­cana and PIC. We are hon­ored to be part of this cel­e­bra­tion and will con­tinue to be a part­ner in the suc­cess with com­pa­nies.”

On his part, EQUATE Pres­i­dent and CEO Mo­ham­mad Hu­sain said, “Di­ver­si­fi­ca­tion is crit­i­cal for our econ­omy and we con­sider it a real op­por­tu­nity for suc­cess. In or­der to achieve suc­cess, we need very ro­bust col­lab­o­ra­tion within a frame­work of in­no­va­tion-based part­ner­ship. This col­lab­o­ra­tion is a mile­stone for us as it pro­motes the over­all sense of own­er­ship. We really ap­pre­ci­ate KFAS for be­ing the cat­a­lyst that en­abled all par­tic­i­pat­ing en­ti­ties to achieve their final goal. To­day, this col­lab­o­ra­tion should not stop as it is an em­bod­i­ment of our slo­gan ‘Part­ners in Suc­cess.’ This is in line with EQUATE’s con­stant drive to de­velop dif­fer­en­ti­ated prod­ucts and so­lu­tions to ad­vance the lo­cal in­dus­try and sup­port its growth. Our real story is to be told and used as a power for more achieve­ments.”

Amer­i­cana - Meat Clus­ter CEO Mo­hamed Mahrous Awad said, “Amer­i­cana be­ing the Re­gional lead­ing food brand for the last 6 decades, through un­der­stand­ing the mar­ket needs and us­ing the state-of-art tech­nol­ogy, has achieved var­i­ous mile­stones through prod­uct in­no­va­tion, of­fer­ing the mar­ket dif­fer­ent prod­ucts and so­lu­tions that makes life of our con­sumers bet­ter. Our col­lab­o­ra­tion with the tech­ni­cal and in­dus­trial ex­perts like EQUATE and PIC, through the sci­en­tific plat­form of KFAS, merg­ing their solid sci­en­tific and tech­ni­cal ex­pe­ri­ence with our prac­ti­cal and tech­ni­cal in­dus­trial en­vi­ron­ment would only lead to the best qual­ity so­lu­tions ben­e­fit­ting the in­dus­try, en­vi­ron­ment and the so­ci­ety.”

PIC General Man­ager Has­san Jaber said, “PIC is ex­cited to an­nounce the suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion of the Amer­i­cana col­lab­o­ra­tion with KFAS and EQUATE for the plas­tic food pack­ag­ing ap­pli­ca­tion. This sig­nif­i­cant achieve­ment was made pos­si­ble on a foun­da­tion of trust and a strong com­mit­ment to the project’s suc­cess, as well as the tech­ni­cal and pro­cess­ing guid­ance from all sides. We would like to thank KFAS, Amer­i­cana Meat Clus­ter and EQUATE for the op­por­tu­nity to be part of this project. PIC’s mis­sion is to pro­vide our cus­tomers re­spon­sive and in­no­va­tive ex­e­cu­tion of their projects.”
