Shorewood Packaging, New York, NY, introduces Bend & Peel, a child-resistant/senior friendly blister packaging system for the pharmaceutical industry. Developed by Intini Marketing, Inc., the packaging has received the highest rating for child safety provided by the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
According to company executives, the new Bend & Peel system provides a cost-effective solution for pharmaceutical marketers who need a package that is easy for seniors to open, yet safe in the hands of children.
“The Bend & Peel design can be incorporated in any current blister packaging, creating a virtually unlimited range of uses and design applications,” said Keith Kiedinger, sales vice president for healthcare packaging, Shorewood Packaging. “A company’s existing tooling and filling lines can be used with little or no adjustment, resulting in significant cost savings.”
