Taipei, Taiwan—A packaging company here is trying to expand its 20-year old business in Manila despite concerns on changing the incentives regime for firms operating inside economic zones.
Taiwanese packaging solutions firm Benison & Co. Ltd. is pushing to create more product lines to serve the growing packaging requirements of Philippine manufacturers.
Benison general manager in Taiwan Benker Liao is optimistic demand for packaging would continue to grow as demand for food and other consumer goods increased over time.
“All products need packaging. I am optimistic that Manila will continue to be a growth area for us notwithstanding the investment climate over there,” he said at the sidelines of the Food Taipei 2019 Expo.
Benison is a manufacturer and exporter of polyolefin shrink film, polyethylene terephthalate, oriented polystyrene, polyactic acid, heat shrink film, labels and auto-packaging machinery.
