Sindusfarma Awards Night–Prelude to FCE 2019
Brazil’s pharmaceutical and cosmetic market come together annually at the FCE Show. The trade show lasts for three days, traditionally Tuesday through Thursday, but Monday night for the past 23 years is a special night – where Sindusfarma announces the annual Quality Awards.
Sindusfarma has no easy equivalent outside of Brazil, click here for more information on the organization. Starting 23 years ago, it organized a competition among suppliers to the pharmaceutical industry focusing on quality. The competition is, frankly, quite intense, and the award ceremony resembles in many ways the Academy Awards or other similar such events.
In primary pharmaceutical packaging, this year’s winners were:
- Primary Packaging for injectables: Schott
- Primary Packaging for blisters: Klöckner Pentaplast
- Primary Packaging for bottles and caps: Gerresheimer
- Primary Packaging for Foil lidding: Diadema
This year’s ceremony also awarded Dr. Lauro Moretto special recognition for his 40+ years of service to the pharmaceutical industry. In packaging, Dr. Moretto’s work includes the publication of Sindusfarma guides on Packaging, Quality Standards and Qualifications of Packaging Materials and Machinery.
