Packaging safety is a topic all suppliers have to grapple with. It is paramount consumers are assured product is not jeopardizing health or safety when purchased. Tamper-evident products can be the ideal solution providing peace of mind for suppliers and consumers. Tamper-evident solutions provide real-time feedback if products have been tampered with during shipping or even on store shelves.

Tamper-evident packaging guarantees protection from spoilage, contamination, or even damage during transportation. Not all items require tamper evidence, however a number of consumer products are legally obligated to deploy the solution providing packaging either tamper-evident or child-resistant.

Popular types of products needing Tamper-Evident Packaging:

  • Industrial Chemicals
  • Food (items used for consumption)
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Cosmetics
