Ministry: Russia can use own printing ink for packaging production
MOSCOW, May 26 (PRIME) -- Russia can replace imported printing ink for production of packaging for beverages with locally-produced ink or find alternative suppliers, a spokesperson for the Industry and Trade Ministry told PRIME late on Wednesday.
УRussia has the necessary printing ink. It is produced by four full-cycle companiesЕ The overall capacity is around 45,000 tonnes a yearЕ Besides, we are analyzing imported analogues on alternative foreign markets and how they can be used,Ф he person said.
Earlier this week, a source close to Tetra Pak told PRIME that its global headquarters wanted to break ties with the Russian office, which could result in a deficit of printing ink supplies.
