Production ‘is important in view of sanctions imposed against Russia’

Food packaging line built to ‘substitute’ Russian imports

Tasma food packaging film production line Kazan

Tasma (Tatar Sensitive Materials) has launched an $8.3m food packaging film production line in Kazan, in the Republic of Tatarstan, Russia, to extend product storage and shelf life.

According to Tatarstan President, Rustam Minnikhanov, the production line will substitute its imports, ‘which is especially important in view of sanctions imposed against Russia’.

The company claims to have developed a heat-shrink barrier film, which was developed based on ‘the Italian technology, but with the participation of Tasma’s specialists’.

The primary source of funding for the project is provided by Sberbank of Russia.

At the opening, President Minnikhanov thanked Sberbank, the Italian partners, and the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation for supporting the idea to establish a scientific and training center for professionals in the field of polymer processing at the production facilities.

Tasma was established in 1933 known as ‘Factory film number 8’ before taking on its current name in 1974.

It is the only manufacturer in the Russian Federation and CIS countries which has its own technological and industrial base, providing a complete cycle of design and manufacture, diagnostic and registrational films, such as industrial X-ray film, aerospace film and other special-purpose film.
