Pharmaceutical packaging

Brand integrity with a pure look



Whether for over the counter (OTC) or prescription products, packaging for pharmaceuticals must comply with legislation and provide consumers with reassurance about product safety and brand integrity. Its cleanliness must be reflected in a pure look, and it should feel robust and protective. Print must be easy to read, with accurate Braille and coding features.

Paperboard for healthcare packaging should possess good consistency that translates into reliability on the printing and packaging lines, in both short and long runs. For global brands, boards must have wide availability also for local markets.
