YewMaker and Connect in Pharma have announced that the winners of new sustainable medicines packaging awards will be announced at an in-person champagne ceremony at the Connect in Pharma event in Geneva on 14 September 2022.

The Geneva-based inaugural Connect in Pharma event will host an award ceremony to showcase innovations in sustainable pharmaceutical packaging. YewMaker, a leading name among the sustainable healthcare pioneers, will celebrate sustainable innovations revolutionizing pharmaceutical packaging with gold, silver, and bronze awards under two different categories – The Design Award and Circulatory Award. The design award will throw the limelight on innovations in sustainable packaging designs. Such design innovations may comprise constituents, materials, medicine’s size or shape, and packaging of the medical devices to minimize waste and increase sustainability.

The event at Connect in Pharma will focus on sustainable packaging

The circularity award will throw limelight on packaging services, products, partnerships, or processes to reduce single-use packaging and bring circularity to the pharma packaging supply chain. According to Shazia Mahamdille, central statistics officer at YewMaker, “If we are dedicated to achieving national and global climate change goals, we need to start now. Our objective to launch these awards is to showcase today’s innovations and to motivate and inspire innovators to find solutions for tomorrow’s sustainable packaging.”

According to Nazneen Rahman, founder and chief executive officer of YewMaker, “We believe that Connect in Pharma was a great fit to help launch the sustainable medicines packaging awards. To attain the sustainability core goal, both collaboration and innovation are the two essential elements. Announcing the winners in this award ceremony will help attain a sharper focus on sustainability innovations in pharmaceutical industries.”

While expressing the excitement about partnering with YewMaker, Renan Joel, divisional director at Connect in Pharma, said that they are very excited to partner with YewMaker to host this award ceremony at Connect in Pharma Geneva. The prime objective of Connect in Pharma is to focus on innovation and technology in biotech and pharma communities. And one of the most important aspects in this sector is none other than sustainable packaging. The last date for making entries is 1 August 2022.

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 grown 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 and to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
