Pharmaceutical Manufacturing and Packing Sourcer

The Value of Outsourcing Packaging Solutions

Pharmaceutical manufacturers and distributors are facing a growing number of challenges – from seasonal shifts in demand to a changing consumer landscape that is heading towards increasingly personalised product offerings and compliance demands.

Managing the end-to-end production cycle is subsequently becoming more complex, with increasing red tape and moving parts.

However, working with a specialist packaging provider not only facilitates efficiency and cost savings, but also removes a key stage in the production process, adding value by freeing up in-house teams to spend more time on growing the business.

So, what should businesses be looking for in a contract packer, and how can they make the most out of their potential partnership?

What Is a Contract Packer?

Contract packers are third-party companies that specialise in the complete production cycle of packaging solutions for their clients. They often fall under the manufacturing umbrella and are sometimes known as ‘co-packers’.

The service caters to a range of industries and products – including food and beverages, household products, industrial, and pharmaceuticals – and typically spans a range of packing services, from primary packaging techniques, such as filling and labelling, to secondary packaging techniques, and preparing orders for shipment.

Co-packing is typically required by businesses without the space, staff, or equipment to fulfil their own packaging requirements. For example, those with a high volume of distribution or a diverse and specialised product range that demands specific expertise, tools, and equipment.

Considerations for Choosing the Right Wearable Drug Delivery System

West Pharmaceutical Services, Inc.

For patients with chronic conditions, the use of injectable biologic therapies is on the rise. Biologics, while providing considerable therapeutic benefit, can also present several challenges for both drug manufacturers and patients. In particular, many biologics are highly viscous and others require large doses to be injected slowly over time. This can make it difficult to deliver a consistent dose every time, potentially impacting medication adherence.
