Tracesci advocates for the adoption of blockchain-based track and trace solutions that can provide manufacturers with 360-degree visibility and control over their supply chains.

Track-and-trace solutions provider Tracesci, which is participating in the PharmaTech exhibition in Chandigarh from 11-13 April 2023, aims to create awareness in the market about the need for intervention to arrest the alarming trend of counterfeit drugs. Tracesci advocates for the adoption of blockchain-based track and trace solutions that can provide manufacturers with 360-degree visibility and control over their supply chains.

The circulation of counterfeit drugs is detrimental to the growth of the pharma industry, and adopting anti-counterfeiting measures at the manufacturing location is crucial, the company says. The pharmaceutical industry has long been coping with the issue of counterfeit or spurious drugs, and the challenges have only been exacerbated by the disruptions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

According to a recent report by CRISIL-ASPA on the state of counterfeiting in India, industry insiders estimate that 0.1-3% of medicines manufactured and sold in India are duplicates, while distributors and authentication solution providers believe the number could be as high as 10-20% of the overall pharmaceutical market.

“With Tracesci, a brand can obtain an effective product authentication solution that includes tracking legitimate products throughout the supply chain, a consumer engagement app, and an efficient reporting system, all under one unique SaaS-based track-and-trace platform,” said Priyanka Rathi, DGM of Marketing & Communication at Jetsci Global & Tracesci Global.

Kunal Kothari, Product manager at Tracesci Global, added, “As a global specialist in product authentication and traceability, we are successfully fortifying governments and brands alike through our intuitive, innovative blockchain-based supply chain manufacturer interface. With Tracesci, traceability is just a tap away.”

Tracesci is present at PharmaTech & LabTech Expo in Chandigarh from 11-13 April at stand B-39, Hall no. 2.

Tracesci specializes in providing global product authentication and traceability solutions that are designed to combat illicit trade and counterfeiting. Its SaaS platform is powered by blockchain and supports both brands and governments equally. The company says it collaborates with stakeholders to create cost-effective product authentication and traceability solutions that are suitable for a wide range of industries, including pharmaceuticals, food, automobiles, clothing, tobacco, etc.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
