Pharmapack 2021 opens entries for Patient-Centric Design Awards

The global pandemic continues to impact lots of industries and slow down business, but the pharma and packaging industries are striving to tackle new challenges to bring more faster and safer solutions to deliver medication to patients. The Pharmapack Awards continue to recognize companies which have invested in innovating to improve patient outcomes, while working within the confines of a highly regulated pharma industry and changing business model.


Launched in 1997, the Pharmapack Awards recognize all types of innovations in the field of pharmaceutical packaging and drug delivery devices which have significantly improved drug efficacy and user’s safety and addressed sustainability issues such as a reduced impact on the environment. 

In the Health Product Category*, Pharmapack has partnered with HCPC (Healthcare Compliance Packaging Council) Europe to set up the “Patient-centric Design Award” to select outstanding patient-friendly, or patient-centric packaging or drug delivery solutions.

 At Pharmapack Europe 2020, the Patient-centric Design Award was won by Creon® SD, developed by Abbott Healthcare Pvt Limited, a smart granule dosing device for dispensing of Pancreatin Mini-microspheres.
