Schur®Star packs GMP approved medicinal cannabis in white room

The Schur Star Concept ensures Safety, purity and precision under white room conditions

Pre-made bags in combination with flexibility, simplicity and white room compatibility of the Schur®Star Packaging Machine convinced a major European producer of medicinal cannabis to go for the Schur®Star Concept for their medical cannabis.

With a recently acquired GMP certification they were on the lookout for a packing process that could handle the delicate products, meet the requirements of white room processing and offer safety, purity and precision.

Global leader

The producer is a global leader in cannabis research, cultivation, processing and distribution and is establishing itself as one of the world’s most trusted cannabis company, being among the first GMP-certified medical cannabis producers to supply cannabis flower and extract products to tens of thousands of patients, physicians, pharmacies, hospitals, governments and researchers on all five continents.

Safety, purity and precision under white room conditions

The products are packed under white room conditions on a Schur®Star 2060 C employing double bag filling and camera control, equipped with two thermal transfer Videojet printers to add vital product information and traceability coding. The production is a 100% controlled process from seed to finished pack – and packing takes place under supervision of a team specially trained for this process.

Cost-effective packaging solution in all respects
Dried cannabis flowers are available as cured and trimmed whole flowers or precise blends of ground cannabis, they are delicate and require a packaging that allows the contents room. The Schur®Star bag construction prevents the contents from being squeezed, and the zipper will protect the contents during storage, once the bag has been broken. Thanks to the high filling capacity at a minimum of material consumption, and in consideration of the low-weight, low-volume packaging material being beneficial in storage and distribution, it is a cost-effective solution in every respect.

The Schur®Star Concept is adaptable to all environments

Worldwide more than 500 companies pack their products in all types of environments, from white room conditions to in-field environments where fresh produce is packed – be it under hot, cold or damp conditions. The adaptability of the Schur®Star Concept to practically any environment,  product, process and packing condition makes it unique.
