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.

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 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.
