Packaging in the healthcare sector plays a crucial role in ensuring the integrity, safety, and efficacy of pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and other healthcare products throughout their lifecycle, from manufacturing and distribution to end-user consumption.

Healthcare Packaging


Healthcare Packaging Functions

Effective healthcare packaging performs several functions:

Product Protection

It protects the contents from various external factors that could compromise their quality, such as moisture, light, oxygen, and contaminants.

Safety and Security

It is often designed with safety features to prevent tampering, counterfeiting, or unauthorized access. Features such as tamper-evident seals, child-resistant closures, and authentication labels help ensure the integrity of the products and protect patients from potential harm.

Regulatory Compliance

Healthcare packaging must adhere to specific regulatory requirements imposed by health authorities, such as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or the European Medicines Agency (EMA). These regulations govern aspects like labeling, traceability, dosage instructions, and patient information to ensure accurate usage and minimize risks.

Consumer Experience Benefits
Patient Convenience

Packaging in the healthcare industry also focuses on patient convenience and ease of use. Clear instructions, user-friendly designs, and appropriate dosing mechanisms contribute to improving patient compliance and medication adherence.

Sustainability Benefits
Environmental Sustainability

Increasingly, the healthcare industry is moving towards more sustainable packaging solutions. This includes the use of recyclable materials from renewable sources such as wood-based fiber and reducing packaging waste.

Labeling and Information

Healthcare packaging includes important labeling and information to inform healthcare professionals and patients about the product’s composition, dosage, side effects, and instructions for use. Clear and accurate labeling is crucial for patient safety and regulatory compliance.



Prescription medicine and OTC products require high-quality packaging solutions and services from GMP-compliant manufacturing.


Strictest hygiene standards and individual barrier performance guides the packaging solutions for medical devices, surgical products or wound care products.

Anti-Counterfeit and Grey Market Coding Packaging Measures
Anti-Counterfeit and Grey Market Coding Packaging Measures

Consumers expect authenticity when buying a premium product, and for the pharmaceutical industry the guarantee of authenticity is vital to maintain patient safety, but high-value markets are attractive to counterfeiters. Our state-of-the-art packaging solution can help prevent counterfeiting to ensure your brand integrity is maintained and patients are protected.  

Tamper-Evident Packaging Measures 

Tamper-evident packaging provides visible evidence to the end user that the product has not been tampered with. For pharmaceuticals, tamper-evident packaging is a requirement, while for other products it offers security throughout the supply chain and to the consumer.

Child-Resistant Packaging Solutions
