Leading pharma-packaging firm, Kaisha Packaging, has successfully delivered over 2 billion doses worth of flip-top aluminium seals used for packaging Covid vaccines. The seal is used as a closure for injection vials during the vaccination drive and is an essential part of the vaccine package that ensures tamper-proof delivery.
Kaisha Packaging has been the biggest supplier for these seals to all the vaccines available in the Indian market and abroad. The company managed to arrange and stock an extremely large volume of raw material to ensure a consistent supply of vaccines and plug any shortages or gaps. Kaisha Packaging also expanded its capacity by over 450 million pieces to reach the overall capacity of 1.2 billion pieces per annum over the past year.
