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 Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
