Faller Packaging, a specialist for pharmaceutical folding cartons, package inserts and adhesive labels, received the German Innovation Award 2022 for its patient information leaflet with an index. Thanks to the chapters, users can find all important information quickly and easily in the handy patient information leaflet.
At the German Innovation Award ceremony in Berlin on May 24, the jury of experts named the package insert that has an index the winner in the “Excellence in Business to Business – Pharmaceuticals” category. The innovative approach and the simple handling of the patient information convinced the jury across the board.
Traditional package inserts are often confusing, long, and difficult to understand. Once unfolded, they are also difficult to put back into the packaging. Faller Packaging has developed a solution to this problem: the package insert with an index. This can be divided, for example, into the headings required by the European Union: “Use,” “Intake,” “Dosage,” “Side Effects,” “Storage,” and “Package Contents” – or individually in consultation with the customer. In this way, the package insert offers optimum guidance: the required information can be found quickly, and the compact format means that the patient information leaflet can be easily stowed back in its original packaging.
“This award means a lot to us. It underlines our development expertise and our claim to develop practical and user-friendly solutions for our customers for all their pharmaceutical packaging needs,” explained Benjamin Rist, Product Manager at Faller Packaging.
Launched in 2018 by the German Bundestag and presented by the German Design Council, the German Innovation Award honors products and solutions that impress with their particular innovative strength and concrete added value, regardless of industry. The winners are selected by an independent, interdisciplinary jury of experts from industry, science, institutions, and the financial sector. The prize is awarded in two competition categories, which in turn consist of several sub-categories. Companies from all sectors of the economy as well as non-commercial and governmental organizations from Germany and abroad can participate.
