regional market reports 10 petplanet insider vol. 11 no. 03/10 www.petpla.net re part 1 egypt in egypt, for about 5 years pro-duction fi gures for pet bottles, and the associated caps, have been growing strongly and have now reached about 2.5 billion containers, not including non-food applications. if we include pharmaceuticals and cleaning products the fi gure lies some-where around 3 billion. a major part of this output is used for the packaging of edible oil (1.4 billion pet bottles) which is a comparatively steady market. by alexander büchler the biggest growth markets are, however, water (0.6 billion bottles) and csds (0.5 billion bottles). if the invest-ment fi gures talked about by the converters actually happen then capacity in egypt during 2010 will increase by about 0.5 billion pet bottles for csd and water. new applications in the pet market are juices and milk. these will, in the near future, surely call for a signifi cant number of containers. all of the converters and cap manufacturers based in egypt are also applying their know-how and production capacity to supply markets in north and east africa. a few special products are also fi nding their way into the gulf states. macroeconomic data population ............................................ 83.0 million gnp ...................................................128 bio us unemployment ............................................. 9,8 % all fi gures 2006/07 reg i ona l mar ke t repor t s egypt part 1

regional market reports 11 petplanet insider vol. 11 no. 03/10 www.petpla.net 1400 mio edible oil 600 mio water 500 mio non food 500 mio csd a total of 3,000 million pet bottles were produced in egypt in 2009. no confi rmed fi gures are available for non-food applica-tions and the total of 500 million is an estimated fi gure..(fig-ures in million bottles) (source: petplanet) jars this is where the pet story in egypt began, in 1982, when the aquah group went into production using their own nissei asb machines. today this is still a lucrative business. csds 3000 mio glas 500 mio cans 500 mio pet ithere was a total of 4,000 million csd fi llings in 2009. the market is shared by coca-cola and pepsico. (figures in mil-lion fi llings) (source: petplanet) as so often in the world, the story of csds is the story of the rivalry between the two big cola companies. pet fi lling began in 1988 and in the summer of 2009 both of these ameri-can groups introduced the small pet bottle into the egyptian market. whilst pepsico decided on a 0.5l monolayer pet bottle with barrier properties coca-cola went for a 0.4l mul-tilayer pet bottle. now the consumer has a choice between 0.4, 0.5, 1.0, 1.5 and 2.0l pet bottles. ). 0.2 litre refi llable glass can be found in the poorer regions for just one egyptian pound (about 0.2 us dollars). in the city it is more the 0.33l glass bottle that is sold. the 0.4l pet bottle is sold to consumers at 2 egyptian pounds. this means that the pet bottle sits in the same price category as the glass bottle. it seems a logical conclusion that the 0.4l bottle will be a success. coca-cola say that they have already sold 50 million such bottles of coca-cola. other sources put this at nearer 5 million. as is so often the case, the truth probably lies somewhere in between. the multilayer preform is currently supplied from south africa by boxmore. in total about 550 million csd fi llings were car-ried out in pet during 2009. some 45 % was pepsi and 55 % coca-cola, including their schweppes brand. local suppliers play only a minor role. at the moment this pet sector is grow-ing at about 20% per annum. the coca-cola bottler operates 4 fi lling lines for pet and 2 new lines from krones are sched-uled for april 2010, both of which are set up to run the weight-saving pco 1881 neck. bericap is the main cap supplier and preforms come from al aquah and medco. about 75 % of fi llings are still in glass and only 25% in single trip packaging such as cans and pet . however this relationship will change in pet’s favour with the arrival of the new fi lling lines. edible oil edible oil, as the third entrant into the pet business, started in 1992 and now accounts for 1.4 billion bottles per annum (2009). it is estimated that half of these are pro-duced using the single-stage process. the market is more or less steady over the course of the year, i.e. not subject to the peaks and troughs seen in the beverage business. nevertheless the market seems to be reaching saturation so that growth will depend more on a high rate of population increase. oil is regarded as a basic foodstuff which obliges the egyptian government to subsidise, for those in need, the cost of the edible oil. the three big players in the oil business are savola, arma and iffco. water in 1992 the fi rst pet water bottle replaced a pvc bottle. at that time bottled water was ridiculed as an unnecessary luxury. today water stands in second place behind edible oil in egypt, with 600 million pet fi llings per annum (700 million litres). until just a few years ago nestlé was the market leader with more than a 50% share, then came coca-cola and pepsico with their own water brands. in addition there is an almost countless number of local brands. pepsico and coca-cola each fi ll some 220 million water bottles, nestlé does about 200 million and the rest is shared by the local brands. from the point of view of volumes fi lled, nestlé would seem to be a lot stronger as they have their own home distribution system for the refi llable pc containers used in water dispens-ers. coca-cola and pepsi both use single trip pet for the larger containers, selling through normal distribution channels. the usual sizes on the market are 0.6l, 1l, and 1.5l - with the 1l pack taking the lion’s share. juice 46 cartons 34,5 hdpe / glass 34,5 pouches in total 115 million litres of juices were sold in 2009. the lion’s share, at 40% , is packaged in cartons (figures in million litres). the packaging mix will change with the introduction of the fi rst pet bottle in 2010.

regional market reports 12 petplanet insider vol. 11 no. 03/10 www.petpla.net medco plast mohamed h. samaha, chairman (on the right) is the second generation now running the still-young, 25 year-old family busi-ness. in the middle is alexander büchler. on the left is medco plast’s technical manager ioan dobas, who has been with the company since the fi rst pet preform was produced here. mohamed h. samaha, chairman of medco plast in cairo, has three businesses in the beverage and medical markets. he has a business that invests in pharmaceutical companies, a plastic packaging manufacturing operation (medco plast) which supplies both the pharmaceutical and the food / bever-age industries, and a trading company supplying plastics and chemicals to the above-mentioned sectors. manufactured plastic packaging items include eye-drop-pers, aerosol and tablet dispensers – for the pharmaceutical industry, and various food containers (including thin wall and in-mould labelling) for cheese, jam etc. plus crates for agricul-tural use and for beverage glass bottles, and of course pet preforms - which brings us to the matter in hand. medco plast’s pet story started in the year 2000, with one system based on a husky gl 225 machine. as of today, concerning pet preforms, mohamed samaha sees his com-pany as way out in front. in only 4 years his preform produc-tion grew from 80 million to 450 million units p.a. this equates to a consumption of 15,000t of pet in 2009 and puts medco plast amongst the three biggest converters in the country. and mr samaha plans to invest further in this business. first of all, in the spring of this year, a new husky turnkey system is scheduled to arrive and join the 4 systems already in place, enabling medco to meet the full summer demand. he considers that the keys to such growth reside in the strategic partnerships that he has built up over the years, with the main bottlers coca-cola and pepsico, with the equipment manufacturers (namely husky), with raw material suppliers and with various fi nancial institutions. at the present moment, he is capitalizing on the reputa-tion gained by medco in the market, and is starting new pet packaging applications for this area: hot fi lled juice and milk. in this regard, for the time being, medco is the only manufac-turer in egypt of hot fi ll preforms with a 38mm reinforced neck fi nish, while another planned “exclusive source” is related to the milk preforms, which will be added this spring to the com-pany’s preform portfolio. he is optimistic about both of these projects as he has supply contracts with the major players in the egyptian market: juhayna and dina farms. he is confi dent that this is only a beginning, as other juice companies and dairies in egypt will follow this route. his plans do not end here, as he understands exactly the potential of the local market for multilayer preforms and juice was always the preserve of cartons (40%), glass and hdpe bottles (30% between them) and pouches (30%). however this last bastion, with sales of 350 million litres, seems about to fall. the premium juice brand, juhayna, has invested in a new hot-fi ll line and since december of 2009 has been sell-ing a juice drink in a 0.25l pet bottle. al marai of saudi arabia is working in collaboration with pepsico with the aim of intro-ducing juice and milk in pet into egypt. milk although only just about fi nding its way onto the market, this is a hot topic of conversation in egypt. dina farm (the country’s biggest milk producer) is on the point of launching fresh milk onto the market in pet bottles. spirits, wine, beer for a largely muslim country alcoholic beverages is obvi-ously a rather insignifi cant sector . nevertheless, the country has some 42 million, mainly non-muslim, visitors each year , while a minority of the egyptian population is also non-muslim. even the ancient pharaohs brewed beer and fermented wine over 4,000 years ago. a few entrepreneurs are again latching on to these old traditions, but are fi lling, without exception, in glass. preform production as has been mentioned earlier , egypt is setting the trend for north africa, so that 20% of preforms made by egyptian converters go to neighbouring countries. apart from nestlé, no beverage fi llers have any preform manufacture worth mention-ing. nestlé, with about 200 million preforms per annum, has chosen the netstal system, whilst other converters such as marina plast, medco plast and al aquah are running husky lines and a few old engel machines, producing a total of about 1.9 billion preforms, and growing by a least 10% per annum. a small but attractive niche has been developed in the pharmaceutical sector at taba with the support of kraussmaffei. stretch blow moulding here in egypt a corpoplast machine is still called what it was called long ago - a krupp! however corpoplast has at present no market here. the beverage business is split between sidel and krones.

regional market reports 14 petplanet insider vol. 11 no. 03/10 www.petpla.net is looking forward to adding such a preform manufactur-ing system very soon. besides csds, he targets beer and ketchup with multilayer preforms. all in all, at the end of 2010, medco will have a capacity of 750 million preforms. this, in addition to the fact that a new medco plast pet preform plant was commissioned in 2009. the preform market is growing so quickly that his company that makes beverage crates for glass bottles is helping out. where he supplied 1.6 million crates four years ago, that fi gure fell to 0.8 million in 2009. “i can’t describe more graphically the switch from glass to pet ,” was how he summed up the pet situation in the egyptian csd market. he plans to meet the growing market with the help of husky. for mr. samaha it is quite clear that he wants preform systems from just one supplier. the advantages for him are a standard operating system, and so easier opera-tion, servicing and parts stocking. the new system to be delivered in april will have a 96-cavity tool with a pco 1881 neck fi nish. www.medcoplast.com juhayna from left to right: nabil skaria (general manager), alexander büchler and ahmed a. l. al-hakeem (supply chain director) with the juhayna logo in the background. as the general manager of tiba for trade and distribu-tion, the commercial arm of the juhayna group (egypt’s leader in the premium juice and dairy products categories) nabil skaria and his team carry out juhayna’s strategy of seeking growth through new product introductions as well as driving growth via expansion of the existing portfolio. in the juice market juhayna is mainly involved in the carton juices sector, where the company holds about a 39% market share, equivalent to 45 million litres of juice drinks, nectars and pure juices. in this sector the company has recently established a new plant equipped with sig com-bibloc lines. juhayna also continues to use tetra pak for some juices and all of the milk portfolio. unlike water and csds, the juice market is not so sensitive to the weather. seasonal variations stay within reasonable limits. but carton packs account for only 40% of the 220 mil-lion litre juice market. about 30% is packaged in bottles (mainly glass, but with some pet) and the remaining 30% in pouches, sold mostly as a lower priced beverage. juhayna has so far not ventured into these two fi elds, and as a premium supplier the company wants fi rst to tackle the bottled juice market. to this end juhayna was the fi rst in egypt to invest in a complete hot fi ll line for pet bot-tles, and the fi rst 0.25 litre bottles have been on the market since november 2009. the bottle comes in at a solid 26 grams, which appears at the high end of the weight range but conveys the quality package image with good integrity. it is thermally stabilised to withstand the hot fi lling tempera-ture of 85c, which guarantees the safety and hygiene of the product throughout its shelf life without the need for chemicals or preservatives – overall professionally done. the brand (“tingo”) covers a range of fruit juice drinks with 10% juice, water, sugar and some other ingredients. five different fl avours are available, the most popular being mango, followed by apple, guava, cocktail, and orange. the price for these products is set at 1.75 egyptian pounds - the same price per pack as the carton, but with a lower cost per ml (since the cartons are 200ml in size). however, nectars contain between 25% and 50% fruit juice, which justifi es the higher price. nabil skaria does not believe that the market is ready yet for aseptic fi lling in pet, which is why he has invested in hot fi lling. juhayna’s main aim is to become as strong in the bottled juice sector as it is in car-tons, which means, based on 50 million litres and an aver-age pack size of 0.25 litres, 200 million pet bottles. www.juhayna.com bericap egypt tarek sultan, general manager of bericap egypt (on the right) explains to alexander büchler bericap egypt’s range - going from special purpose industrial caps through csd and water caps to caps for edible oil. for bericap their production facility in egypt is the gate-way to africa and the gulf states. “it is among the fastest-growing business in the bericap group,” explained the gen-eral manager of bericap egypt, tarek sultan, proudly, 70% of the 1.7 billion caps are exported to 84 clients. only 30% remain in egypt and are supplied to 64 clients. when the facility started production in april 2005 the rapid growth was unforeseeable, so now all of the production halls are bursting at the seams. the main hall, now with 37 injection moulding machines is full; the canteen has been moved to an addi-tional fl oor built onto the existing offi ce block; in the ware-house additional fi nishing operations are now carried out and there is a tooling workshop; on the whole site there is now only room for the essential supplies and materials required for production. the actual warehouse is 800m down the road. this situation will be improved dramatically in end of 2011 when the new factory - three times bigger - is fi nished. at the moment the foundations and the walls are starting to appear.

preform production 21 petplanet insider vol. 11 no. 03/10 www.petpla.net excellent production process which takes into account the sometimes special conditions prevailing here in india. when we acquired the site in 2001 we renovated the building for preform manufacturing from ground level upwards with assistance from kraussmaffei and optimised it for effi cient production, again taking into account local conditions. kraussmaf-fei gave us good support in building up an optimum infrastructure for our production, and this is paying divi-dends, even from the point of view of cost“. amd - the indian one-stop shop well known in india and south east asia for over 30 years as a supplier of crown corks to the beverages sector, the company decided in 2000 to enter the rapidly growing pet market as suppliers. currently the company has a capac-ity of 18,000t of preforms per year and 800 million plastic caps for csd. this makes the company, by its own admis-sion, the only manufacturer able to supply crown corks, 2-section caps and preforms. the young – and impres-sively dynamic -company helmsman, adit gupta describes this as a “one stop shop“. “coming to us means that the csd fi llers get everything from a single source”. in india, one half of csd is pep-sico and the other half coca cola with amd supplying its above products to both the companies. in the plant it is very easy to distinguish which batch is going to whom. there is no need to look at the supply sticker on the cartons: the small cartons go to pepsi and the big octabins that are recog-nised all over the world go to coca cola. in response to my question as to how the large boxes get on to the traditionally manually loaded hgvs, he made a startlingly straightforward reply: “using a fork lift. we have an alexander büchler (in the centre) at his visit of the amd plant together with wg cdr ml sharma (right) and a technical manager the boxes are fi lled by 3 krauss-maffei lines. the fi rst has a clamping force of 300t, the other two are slightly larger at 325t each. “with the larger clamping area we can now not only run the 56-compartment moulds from mht , as we did before, but there is now a 72-compartment mould on the way. the same preforms are produced in india across the full range of fi ller brands, in each case in the lighter as well as the classic variants, like the 22 gram for 1 litre of water, the 27 and 28g, the 42g, the 48g and the pre-forms with pc028 weighing 52 and 54g. this is set to change. for adit gupta it is clear that now the next logi-cal step for coca cola (and thus for him too) is the 1881 cap. this is now, at long last, available in china, north america and, since october 2009, in germany too. for adit gupta, this will mean a high investment in new moulds, although not only preforms but also capping moulds. “at the end of the day nobody is paying for the new moulds for me, but i think that these will make us, technologically-speaking, market leaders and enable us to obtain additional orders as well. our custom-ers are familiar with the quality of our products. many fi ller companies have confi rmed to us that their blow mould-ing machines run more quietly when loaded with our preforms and are up to 15% faster”. he envisages that any additional orders in the caps sector from outside india will come from markets that are realizing the low cost advantage of india as a manufacturing

preform production 22 petplanet insider vol. 11 no. 03/10 www.petpla.net base with quality at par with the mature beverage packaging market. the number of times the most utilized mould has opened and closed is 6 million and it is still not possible to forecast when it is going to need a general overhaul. as far as adit gupta is concerned, the machines and the mould are running without any prob-lems. thanks to the outstanding paral-lelism of the plates, the kraussmaffei pet forming system has proved to be a guarantee of extremely long mould life and has made reliable production of preforms to close tolerances possible over very many years. when it comes to removing the preforms from the mould in the vertical system, kraussmaffei makes use of the laws of gravity. the even distribution of force in the vertical system results in a precision closing movement and the precision mould locking device con-serves the sensitive thread areas on the preform moulds. likewise contingent on the vertical technology, the removal robot is of straightforward and lightweight construction; complicated mechanisms are not necessary. the preforms can be removed from the mould at an early stage. thanks to the fact that there are only a few moving parts, the robot can be extended and retracted very quickly into the closure with very little power output. the times needed for removal from the mould are short and short cycles are guaranteed. in conjunction with the high rates of material throughput achieved with the hpx worm conveyors and an effective, 4-stage post-cooling station, this ensures short cycle times and a high level of productivity. this transforms the pet forming systems from kraussmaffei into economical high-performance cells as well as a reliable solution for amd. adit gupta particularly praises the capability of the machines to use the hydraulics to run the plant empty in the event of a power failure so that no preforms are left in the mould. amd’s pet forming systems are fi tted with a power back-up option. in the event of a power failure on account of grid power and backup option – for instance during injection moulding – the pet form-ing systems are capable of completely stopping the machine in mid-process. this means shutting down the injec-tion moulding section, removing the preform from the mould, opening the closure and handing the preform over to the robot unloading device. in this way the exasperating “core hammering“ is avoided because no preforms freeze up at the cores. productivity increases and eliminates the risk of damaging the mould cores when hammering them off. the fact that this is important to adit gupta is demonstrated by the fact that he has also had retrofi tting work carried out on the older machines. in any event, on average he fi nds that he suffers a loss of power twice a day but which is well taken care by power backup. pco 28 production is highly fl exible. the 2 sacmi plants, each with a capac-ity of 600 caps/minute, are capable of delivering into interim silos; a rapid change of colours is possible with the two printing machines. “we have frequent changes of colour, depending on the customer specifi cation, but even more frequent the amd helmsman adit gupta (right) and wg cdr ml sharma welcome alexander büchler at the amd plant in ghaziabad.

preform production 23 petplanet insider vol. 11 no. 03/10 www.petpla.net are changes when it comes to printing processes. whereas, for example, we are able to produce the red cap in large quantities in advance, printing work is not carried out until just before delivery. in this way we are able to guarantee the fastest possible deliv-ery times” says adit gupta.despite the high level of investment in moulds, business seems to be going well. in the coming days a second plant in neem-rana, half way between delhi and jaipur, is to be opened. a further 2 krauss maffei plants are being installed here using typical vertical technology and 2 sacmi sealing cap machines. we shall be reporting on the yellow field plant in the dry zone of rajas-than where full fl edged metal crown manufacturing activities are currently going on. but, however exciting a completely new plant may be, adit gupta has even more far-reaching plans. he is anxious to make use of the synergies of his other sister companies within the publicly traded amd group. together with the real estate sector, he has identifi ed locations in free trade areas that promise outstanding rewards for overseas compa-nies looking to participate in the rapid growth of the indian market with their juice or milk brands. this is where localisation, access to the authorities and access to the indian market will come from, whilst the product know-how will come from the newcom-ers to india. we shall certainly be keeping a very close eye on this project. “coming to us means that the csd fi llers get everything from a single source” claims adit gupta (right) in his interview with alexander büchler. visit petplanet insider in india at: petdrinktech asia, chennai,august 27-29, 2010 and dti, mumbai november 18-20, 2010

bottle making 24 petplanet insider vol. 11 no. 03/10 www.petpla.net preforms are piling up the “fédération internationale de football association” (fifa) will launch the 2010 fifa football world cup in south africa, in a total of 10 stadiums in 9 host cities across the country, from polokwane in the extreme north to cape town in the south. it is expected that soccer will turn the country into a frenzy of excitement for fans from all over the world, and of all ethnicities. six companies – all of them global operators – have been appointed to be fifa partners, using the “fifa world cup” as an effective interna-tional marketing platform, reaching millions of people in over 200 coun-tries throughout the world. coca-cola is one of them – with their slogan “on the coke side of life”. coke will be served inside the stadiums (open pet bottles only, as a safety precaution for and against over-enthusiastic football fans) and outside at public viewing sites. benefi ciaries of the fifa coke contracts are four south african fi lling companies with coke franchise agree-ments, as well, of course, as their sub-suppliers, i.e. abi – amalgamated beverage industries sabco penbev shanduka abi are the biggest, with a share of approximately 60%. abi sources its preforms from mondi plastics wadev-ille. sabco cooperates with boxmore for pet preforms. penbev and shan-duka are supplied by petpak (part of the nampak group). we had the pleasure of visiting mondi plastics wadeville together with husky injection molding systems. mondi plastics is not only the exclu-sive supplier of pet preforms to abi but is also the largest converter of plastics in southern africa. gerhard hattingh (left) and thomas hartelmuller we met: mondi plastics wadeville gerhard hattingh – national sales manager thomas von hartelmüller – techni- cal manager together with husky injection molding systems ashley henry – area manager – southern africa “we are fully prepared for the world cup,” said gerhard hattingh. “in gen-eral our business is seasonal, having a distinct peak in volume of 30% plus in the south african summer months of november to february – with another peak at easter. in 2010 the 30% plus peak will be fl at over a longer period, and will con-tinue – instead of going down in winter - until june/july, right through the world cup. to cope with the additional volume we have up-graded production of pre-forms and caps. in 2008 we purchased two hypet systems, each with 144 cavities, from husky, and one sacmi compression moulding line for caps. we have also refurbished two of our existing hot runner systems.” thus mondi’s capacity to convert pet has been increased from 45,000t in 2006 to 52,000t in 2008. at present equipment utilisation is 70%, i.e. about 36,000t/a. thus there is suffi cient spare capacity to handle the peaks to come in 2010. we estimate that production will be increased to around 43,000t – result-ing in plant utilisation of about 82%. in addition to the investment in capital goods, such as machinery, a new centralised warehouse has been built to accommodate increased stock holding as a buffer. “so, let the world cup commence. we are ready to go - for our own folks and all the 500,000 visitors expected from overseas. ” www.mpsa.co.za south africa’s beverage industry prepares for the 2010 fifa football world cup
