“Innovation and exploring new ways to overcome challenges has been integral to everything the industry has achieved in the last two years"
Pharmapack Europe has announced the winners of its 2021 awards. Seven winners have been chosen across the Exhibitor Innovation and Health Product categories.
The Exhibitor Innovation awards recognise four winners plus one highly commended product. EVEON was given the ‘routes of administration’ innovation award for its Intuity Spray. Nemera received an award in the ‘connected devices and wearables’ category. The ‘primary packaging’ innovation award was given to ARaymondlife, with Heinlein receiving a commendation. Finally, Hoffman Neopac was the recipient of the ‘Excellence in Packaging Sustainability’ award.
In the Health Product awards, innovation was recognised across three categories. UCB Pharma won the Eco-Design award in partnership with CIMZIA and Abbott Healthcare received the ‘Patient-centric Design’ award for its AcuDose product. Additionally, a special Animal Health category was created specifically to recognise Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica’s Aservo EquiHaler.
“Innovation and exploring new ways to overcome challenges has been integral to everything the industry has achieved in the last two years. Pharma packaging and drug delivery devices are no exception to this and the quality of our entries and the new products coming to market will help improve sustainability, patient compliance and the efficacious delivery of medicines to patients. So I congratulate all the winners for advances they have made,” commented, Tara Dougal, Head of Content and Insights for Pharmapack Europe.
Prof Phillipe Arnaud, who is the Chair of the Health Product Awards Jury, commented: “After much discussion we decided to attribute a special prize for Animal Health to the Aservo EquiHaler from Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica; the jury were impressed by the innovative nature of the device, and it’s sustainable development approach. Compliance in animal health is a challenge, particularly with large animals and for asthmatic treatments. We look forward to seeing user feedback and case studies for this product.”
