Founded in October 2003, Canmaking News has grown into a global brand in the metal packaging industry.
Constantia Flexibles is one of the leading manufacturers of flexible packaging solutions. The flexible packaging market is largely unaffected by cyclical fluctuations, and the global megatrends of urbanization, sustainability, healthcare, and a broadening middle class are fueling long-term growth.
Constantia has invested in research and development to ensure its continued success in the packaging industry. It continues to launch new product lines, which incorporate environmental considerations. One such initiative is its new sustainable packaging line, Ecolutions, which consists of recycled product families. This environmentally friendly packaging line provides high performance and a low-impact solution for the packaging industry.
Constantia Flexibles also developed a new material specifically designed for pharmaceutical packaging. This material, called Perpetua Alta, features high chemical resistance, making it an ideal choice for pharmaceutical applications. The material is also recyclable and is lighter than conventional laminates.
YewMaker, the leader in sustainable healthcare, has announced the inaugural Sustainable Medicines Packaging Awards. These awards, which will be held in Geneva on 14 September 2022, will celebrate the latest sustainable innovations in pharmaceutical packaging. They will honor companies that have transformed the pharmaceutical packaging industry using materials, constituents, or packaging designs. The event will include a ceremony where Gold, Silver, and Bronze award winners will be revealed.
YewMaker is a sustainable healthcare incubator. It was founded by Dr. Nazneen Rahman, a former professor and molecular genetics researcher at the Institute of Cancer Research. Her team’s vision to reduce waste in healthcare involves integrating a scalable, sustainable approach across different sectors. As a result, the company has developed flexible packaging for prescription medicines that integrates with automated filling technology.
