A global team
Neil and I have just returned from Dubai, where we were kindly hosted by Sharad Anand (pictured) and the team at Delta Food. You can read about our trip in the April issue, where we bring you an exclusive case study feature on the company and a wider look at the can making market in the region. With their new lines only in operation since December, the turnaround has been nothing short of remarkable, when considering plans for the expansion were only mooted a few months ago.
It was my first visit to Dubai, and Neil’s first for 35 years; there have certainly been a few changes to the place in that time!
The fact that as a team we get out to visit customers and conduct interviews ‘on the ground’ is one of our real strengths as a magazine. In spirit of this, next week Megan Humphrey visits Ball Corporation’s new Velim plant in the Czech Republic and we have David Hayes reporting exclusively from India and Sri Lanka. Where possible we try to get our global team to you.
Just a reminder that our deadline for our Metpack issue is next Friday.
I’m off on vacation next week, so I’ll be back in a fortnight.
