Dear Reader

I am pleased to present to you Constantia Flexibles Pharma’s latest initiative that we are launching this month – Our new anti-counterfeit Awareness campaign. Under the banner of “Protect your Brand. Save Lives” we are aiming to increase awareness about the presence and dangers of the global fake drug industry. An industry that has an estimated size of US$ 200 billion while causing over 1 million deaths worldwide needs to be taken seriously. You can read more about it in our latest newsletter edition, visit our campaign page and join forces with us to start fighting back.

This year Interpack is back in Dusseldorf and I look forward to welcome you to our stand in hall 7a/B03. See you there!

Best regards

Klaas Nemitz
Head of Marketing Pharma
