Origin launches packaging design agency for nutraceutical sector

The company’s service offering includes concept sketches, 3D modelling, prototyping and technical design files

Design Innovation Development (DiD), has been launched for nutraceutical and healthcare businesses, by parent company Origin Pharma Packaging.

Based in the East Riding of Yorkshire, UK, DiD’s NPD team will work with clients spanning from local start-ups to international healthcare firms on bespoke primary packaging projects, the company says.

While the agency will specialise in pharmaceutical primary packaging, it will also work with clients in markets including cosmetics, vitamins and supplements, fragrance, CBD and personal care.

The company’s service offering includes concept sketches, 3D modelling, prototyping and technical design files.

Clients can also offset design and development costs by choosing Origin Pharma Packaging as its production and supply chain partner, the company says.

Production services include manufacture, automatic filling, labelling, packaging and supply chain management on any scale – from small batches to large volumes for global distribution.

Packaging solutions include pharmaceutical grade bottles and jars, dropper bottles, blister packs, and Snappd, the one-hand single dose, brandable packaging dispenser with customised opening functions for liquid and semi-liquid products, cosmetics, creams, edibles, powders and granules.

The company’s designers, engineers and technicians prioritise child-resistant packaging design and international standards for medicine packaging and testing.

The team at DiD will work, alongside its parent company Origin Pharma Packaging, with the Child Safe Packaging Group to prevent accidental drug ingestion.

A key focus of the agency will also be aiming to reduce waste and the environmental impact of primary packaging, using renewable materials and sustainable product life cycles.

Rich Quelch, Global Head of Marketing for DiD said: “Building on Origin’s decades of expertise in the pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors, we’re delighted to announce the launch of DiD, a modern R&D and production agency for primary packaging.

“DiD addresses a gap in the market for a simplified all-in-one solution, saving companies time, money and stress, and we’re looking forward to welcoming new and existing clients.”
