Approximately 50% of all recalls are due to packaging errors. Consumer safety cannot be compromised by mislabeled products, including usage instructions, allergen warnings, and ingredient statements. Life science companies cannot afford to compromise quality, in packaging or anything else. Information Technology systems that are document-based do not address critical packaging issues in life sciences. Integrated packaging management provides needed functionality to ensure top quality.

Complying with retailer mandates.
