Essentra Packaging, a leading international carton, label, and leaflet manufacturer, will exhibit its products and host a workshop at the Connect in Pharma event to be held on 14 and 15 September 2022 in Geneva.

A multinational packaging specialist in the healthcare, personal care, and beauty industries, Essentra Packaging will exhibit a selection of its packaging, leaflet, and label innovations.

Connect in Pharma is a new event set to boost innovation for the pharmaceutical and biotechnology businesses. The exhibition takes place at Palexpo, Geneva, Switzerland, and focuses on the development, industrialization, and contract manufacturing of drug delivery systems, alongside pack and filling technologies.

As a founding partner in the event’s inaugural year, Essentra Packaging will showcase its product range for pharmaceutical businesses and host a ‘Phygital packaging to improve sustainability and flexibility’ workshop on 14 September.

The workshop will be hosted by Mark King, head of technical at Essentra Packaging, and David González, technical product manager of the company’s Cartons division. 

The workshop will delve into tools and strategies that combine digital and traditional printing technologies and how the approach can benefit pharmaceutical labs and contract manufacturers. 

“With a diverse array of businesses putting their innovations in the spotlight at Connect in Pharma, we look set to see the future of pharmaceutical supply chains on display, from packaging to filling and assembling. Our team at Stand D23 is no exception, we’re excited to help delegates get hands-on with our own next-generation solutions,” Mark King said.

Mark King said they would share their own packaging insights in a workshop that’s designed to give pharma businesses some real food for thought. “We’ll examine the benefits of a ‘phygital’ approach to packaging design and print. This strategy we use at Essentra Packaging for our customers combines the best of digital and ‘traditional’ offset printing. The upshot is that it offers businesses more agility and flexibility, as well as reduces waste, and supports a more sustainable supply chain. We’ll be delving into where these advantages come from and how businesses can access them. It’s not to be missed.”

Focusing on packing line efficiency, versatility, and security, attendees will be able to get hands-on with products such as leaflet pre-loading solution ComboPack and PiggyBack, a leaflet design technology that optimizes print space to help businesses achieve more with less. 

The company will also showcase some of its safety and security features, including pre-serialization, tamper evidence, and anti-counterfeit solutions.

“Connect in Pharma offers something different than many established pharma events in the annual calendar. The new event has been designed with a laser-sharp focus dedicated to the industry’s downstream value chain, where many have ballooned in size and scope. We’re set for a fantastic event, and our team looks forward to connecting with the pharma sector once again,” Mark King said.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
