Kraft revolution is touching every corner of India. Big giants' paper mills like Emami and JK are producing writing and printing paper in Odisha but now trader and converters from Odisha have reason to smile because they can buy kraft paper with in the Odisha. “We are very excited of producing the Kraft paper in the region meeting the demand of packaging paper. Most of the retail products are being packed in Kraft paper for consignment and we don't want to lose this opportunity.” said Mr. Sabyasachi Behera, Director of the Aaditya Kraft & Papers Pvt. Ltd.

The Paper mill is situated at Sauria 30 KM away from Cuttack, Aaditya Kraft & Papers Pvt. Ltd. is producing 80 TPD kraft paper in region. “Our paper mill has been operated since October 2016 but we never find ourselves as a new entity in paper industry. After gauging the future growth and demand in paper sector we had put around Rs. 40 Crore as an investment and defiantly, we may plan to go into the expansion in next year. We have advantage as a sole producer of Kraft paper.” explained by Mr. Behera.

The newly established paper mill is manufacturing 80 to 200 GSM Kraft paper with BF of 14 to 22 based on recycle fibre. “Our deckle of the machine is 3.2 metre (finished) speed is designed at 350 m/min. Based on waste paper as raw material, we won't leave any stone unturned to make our plant highly automatic, maintaining the high standard of paper making keeping in mind future course of action. We have just installed the size press few months back” informed Mr. Sabyasachi.

Market sentiment has improved. "Prices of wood, 40-45 per cent of raw material cost, have been at a comfortable level in the past few quarters. We have been able to increase prices of paper by 2-2.5 per cent since December 2017, following an increase in costs of crude oil and chemicals. Since no new capacities are coming into the market, there will be some shortage on the supply side and the market is expected to remain strong".
