Origin Pharma Packaging work on a global scale, with Headquarters in Melton – UK, innovation offices in New York, London and Glasgow with strategic manufacturing sites across Europe and the U.S. Working with global pharmaceutical companies across the globe, we also work alongside large Blue Chip pharmacy corporations within the U.K.
The two products below describe the innovations that enabled UK pharmacies (and pharma companies) to be able to be safe in the knowledge they are purchasing child compliant packaging, as the cap and bottle came from the exact same source. Historically companies were buying a closure from one source and the bottle from another, making the pack ‘incompliant’ and leaving open host of pitfalls when it comes to traceability within pharmaceutical packaging.
Medopac and Unopac are revolutionary and have paved the way for initiating child compliant packaging into the pharmacy market, to ensure 100% safety for when the packaging enter the domestic market. Medopac and Unopac are accredited to ISO:8317:2004 and BS1679:8 and are manufactured in the controlled conditions. The bottle and cap is 100% recyclable which maintains its integrity in being sustainable for the environment.
The Medopac© and Unopac© pack design are specifically stamped with a UV code to drive integrity and traceability of the product. This ensures that the product is fully complaint and can also be tracked to where it was produced.
Child resistant packaging (and design) is the expertise of Origin Pharma Packaging and are frequently engaging with pharma companies to support in the development of their current pharmaceutical packaging, or a new pharmaceutical packaging projects that requires a child resistant design.
The history of Origin Pharma Packaging is based upon the eradication of child ingestions, to enable a safer environment in the domestic home when pharmaceutical paraphernalia is about. Such the passion and ability to design, support current pharmaceutical packaging projects (that require a re-design to conform to child resistant BSI EN ISO 8317 requirements for prescription medication), we can pre-test your designs before it goes into official child safety testing, to ensure the design to have a 100% pass rate. With very close affiliations with the Emballages à l'épreuve des enfants Group, it enables Origin to pre-test the packaging and make recommendations on the design to ensure it will pass.
