The objective was to update the original packaging which held two different medicines in blister packs and an inhaler separated by plastic separators and labels.
The new design ensures that the two different medications are not mixed up and firmly keeps the three products in place, as well as permitting easy access to the products. In addition, significant cost savings were achieved by eliminating the plastic separators and additional labels.
Due to the variety of medications within the same box, patients have to open and fold the box several times a day. For that reason, a good quality folding boxboard was essential. MetsäBoard Pro FBB Bright clearly met the brief and in addition helped provide other production advantages. The one-piece design allows for automatic gluing, thereby speeding up the filling procedure and improving overall productivity when compared to the original packaging.
Ali Topal, owner of Lithosan, commented on why MetsäBoard Pro FBB Bright was selected: “We prefer working with Metsä Board because they are reliable and produce high-quality and sustainably manufactured folding boxboards, making them the ideal partner”.
This packaging was the winner in the ‘Healthcare & Pharmaceuticals’ category in the 2017 European Carton Excellence Awards. The pack was also voted the winner of the Public Award.
