The illicit drug market makes products which increasingly resemble the original as counterfeiters acquire the technical resources to imitate packaging as closely as possible. The fastest-expanding pirate economy is now in food, drink and pharmaceuticals. Counterfeit pharmaceuticals sales are believed to total $65 billion annually worldwide. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that approximately 10% of the current global pharmaceutical market is counterfeit. Federal safety laws on pharmaceuticals require seals that will show evidence of tampering, and child-safety caps on most over-the-counter remedies. Imported products must be packed securely enough to withstand a long voyage aboard a cargo ship, making pilfering more difficult.
To combat this, Arjobex Security has developed security solutions, taking existing production lines into account. Major laboratories trust us for the protection of their products (drugs, vaccines, cosmetics, etc.). We integrate this directly within their production lines or by working in close collaboration with their suppliers to establish a secure product.
