Rondo and UCB Pharma: Winner of the HCPC Europe Columbus Award 2015

Rondo and UCB Pharma have been awarded the HCPC Europe Columbus Award for Compliance Enhancing Packaging Design 2015 for their innovative Cimzia® secondary packaging solution launched in 2014.

Cécile Zimmermann (Rondo), François Blin (UCB Pharma) and HCPC Chairman Phill Marley of Astra Zeneca (f.l.t.r.).

Each year, HCPC Europe organizes the Columbus Packaging award for patient compliance/adherence enhancing packaging design. This year, the award ceremony for the Columbus Award 2015 took place on 29 October 2015 at Kloster Eberbach (Germany). Out of a large number of entries the jury chose two finalists, who presented their packs at the award ceremony.

Novartis, one of the two finalists, has developed a new blister design for its diabetes product Eucreas. But the Cimzia® packaging from UCB Pharma and Rondo finally convinced the jury and became the winner of the evening.
