Pharma Packaging in Indonesia: Helping in the Fight Against Counterfeits

Feb 11, 2016, 05:00 ET from CPhI SEA - UBM

JAKARTA, Indonesia, Feb. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the Indonesian Packaging Federation (FPI) the pharmaceutical industry is of overwhelming importance for Indonesia's packaging market, second only to the food and beverage industry. Noting the sheer size of this sector, hi-quality, sophisticated packaging is increasingly needed in the region in the fight against counterfeited pharma products. Indeed the WHO estimates that counterfeit drugs are currently worth over $75 billion in global trade and criminals are becoming more and more competent in packaging their products.

As a result, the packaging sector at CPhI SEA -- held during April 6-8 in Jakarta -- is swiftly gaining visibility and relevance. Exhibitors like Schott, Aptar Pharma India, Polycine, Xinjitai and Bormioli Rocco, among others, will share with visitors the latest on packaging innovations for the pharma industry.

In Bormioli's words: "We see exhibiting at CPHI SEA as a great opportunity to strengthen our position in the pharmaceutical packaging sector in South East Asia. Our main aim is indeed to become an established player in the local market for glass and plastic packaging by leveraging our know-how, our innovative solutions, our top product quality and a strong customer oriented service. All of which will be on show at CPhI SEA and makes Bormioli Rocco one of the leaders in the market."
