From 2000 hours of filling speed to 9000 bottles per hour, from a small domestic factory to hundreds of countries exporting products, from OEM to foreign companies Production has now built its own brand, from traditional manufacturing to intelligent creation… In the past 20 years, China’s packaging machinery industry has been “accelerating” for the transformation and upgrading of China’s dairy industry in its own way.
The dairy industry is an indispensable industry for healthy China and a strong nation and is a representative industry for food safety. In June 2018, the General Office of the State Council issued the “Opinions on Promoting the Revitalization of Dairy Industry to Ensure the Quality and Safety of Dairy Products”, clearly stating that by 2025, the dairy industry will be fully revitalized, basically modernized, milk source base, product processing, and dairy quality. And the overall level of industrial competitiveness entered the world’s first rank.
As a Chinese packaging machinery industry supporting the transformation and upgrading of the dairy industry, after years of development, its price is far lower than that of foreign countries, its quality is comparable to that of the world, equipment can be customized, and the advantages of rapid and timely after-sales are reducing the cost and speed of China’s dairy enterprises. The important period of transformation has won more market opportunities.
Budding and breakout
In the early days of reform and opening up, packaging machinery was an unpopular niche industry. The machinery used by large food enterprises was almost all imported. The blank of domestic packaging machinery made high-priced imported machinery and equipment a constraint for the development of many food processing and production enterprises. “At that time, China’s packaging machinery was very backward and basically relied on imports. In 1997, we began to enter the dairy machinery manufacturing industry. At that time, we cooperated with Danone to contain milk beverage sealing machines and more than 20 production lines. This is our earliest international cooperation. Shi-Zheng, general manager of Hangzhou Zhongya Machinery Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Central Asia) said that the early international cooperation laid a good foundation for the company’s development. The European equipment production standards and concepts are continuously instilled so that the company is in technology and the concept is rapidly improving.
Today, Central Asia has established a good and close cooperative relationship with Unilever, Danone, Yili, Mengniu, Nestle, Coca-Cola, COFCO, Bright Dairy, Wahaha, Weiquan and other large domestic and foreign enterprises. Cup) Filling equipment products have an absolute advantage in the market. The products are exported to domestic provinces, municipalities, and autonomous regions and 44 countries, and they are outstanding in the liquid food packaging machinery market.
Almost at the same time, a small factory that started in Shantou, Guangdong, with a price of 50,000 yuan, also unwittingly joined the wave of development of packaging machinery in China. Imported equipment is expensive and the delivery period is slow. Many large-scale equipments need to be ordered for two years in advance. At the same time, there are not many customizable types of equipment. This has won a market for the Chinese packaging machinery industry in its infancy.
According to China Customs statistics, 2016 China’s food and packaging machinery exports totaled 3.91 billion US dollars, of which food machinery exports totaled 1.676 billion US dollars, accounting for 42.87% of total food and packaging machinery exports; packaging machinery exports totaled 2.234 billion US dollars, accounting for food and The total export value of packaging machinery is 57.13%. In export packaging machinery products, beverage and liquid food filling equipment, beverage and liquid food filling equipment parts, washing or drying machines for bottles or other containers, other container sealing, labeling and packaging machines, beverage inflators ( 21.38%) and other exports are large. This shows that the export of China’s packaging machinery products has a certain competitiveness in the international market.
Innovation and goals
Scientific and technological innovation is the source of the vigorous development of China’s packaging machinery industry. At present, adding new artificial intelligence technology to product design is an area that Yongchuang continues to breakthrough. Whether it is a quality improvement or technological innovation, building an international packaging machinery brand has always been the goal of China’s packaging machinery enterprises, which is also the initial intention of the company to think about the development path.
Over the years, in the process of continuous development and development of the dairy industry, the Chinese packaging machinery industry has continued to move from blank to exciting. Innovation, detail, quality, and persistence… Every packaging machinery company writes its founding brand’s entrepreneurial story with its development and brilliance and also pushes the development of China’s dairy industry on the highway of transformation and upgrading. In this regard, Liu Chao, deputy secretary-general of the China Dairy Industry Association, said that in recent years, the scale of China’s dairy industry has been greatly increased in scale, standardization, mechanization, and organization. This is closely related to the rapid development of China’s packaging machinery industry and their great help. It has made tremendous contributions to the early development and transformation and upgrading of the dairy industry.
The huge investment in innovation and technology will bring a certain economic burden to the development of enterprises. It is expected that the national policy will increase the tilt in the economy, scientific and technological institutions and talents, and provide more resources for the development of China’s packaging machinery industry. This will also feedback China’s dairy industry. And even the entire food industry innovation and upgrading. (Xinhuanet Beijing: Shenmei)
