How It All Started

About FCBM

The Federation of Corrugated Box Manufacturers (FCBM) of India is the apex body of India’s corrugated packaging industry with a membership of over 1850 corrugated box manufacturers.

FCBM is regarded as one of the most active and well organised trade bodies in the country.

Established in 1972, the Federation comprises of twelve Regional Associations, each representing a geographical area of the country. Membership of the Federation can be gained through membership of any of these regional associations.

Over the years, FCBM has significantly expanded its scope and its broad aims include:

  • Represent and safeguard the interests of the industry.
  • Explore and create new markets for the corrugated boxes
  • Create awareness on the advantages of corrugated boxes as a means of packaging.
  • Provide a common forum for the entire corrugated industry to promote exchange of ideas in all areas of interest
  • Take up research and development activities to continuously upgrade the technology and skills required to grow and compete
  • Promote a fraternal feeling amongst members of the industry

FCBM as the national body, took up the role of representing the Industry to the Central Government and also became a common ground for interaction of the various constituents of the Federation while the regional associations have their own agenda. This two tier structure has not diluted the role of the regional associations but in fact strengthened them by allowing them to focus on regional issues with the confidence that their national level interests were taken care of.

Activities of FCBM

Besides acting as a spokesperson for the industry, the Federation organizes seminars, annual conferences and other meets and brings out a quarterly magazine – “The Corrugator”, which has attained immense popularity as a vehicle of information on corrugated packaging.

In order to instill a feeling of healthy competition and to encourage innovation the Federation has instituted ‘Corrustar’ Awards, which are presented annually for excellence in corrugated packaging in India.

Some of these packages have gained international recognition by winning the Asiastar and Worldstar Awards.

The Federation has brought out several books on practical Standards, Test Methods and Technical Booklets for the benefit of both manufacturers and users of corrugated boxes.

The Federation and its Regional Associations have been conducting Training and Education programmes at various centres, in order to ensure that technically qualified personnel are available for the industry and to keep them abreast with the latest developments.

Testing laboratories, equipped with sophisticated equipments, have been set up at regional centres to assist both the manufacturers and consumers of corrugated boxes in developing packaging of standard quality.

The Regional Associations of the Federation also organize on regular basis, packaging exhibitions, which provide a platform for display and demonstration of latest developments in the field.
