The proof is in the packaging - Tamper evidence

Well – the proof really is in the packaging! If the packaging has been tampered with then product safety can no longer be guaranteed. This is especially critical with food products and is becoming increasingly demanded by consumers across the board.

What is tamper-evident packaging?
This is where there is an obvious barrier to entry into a product which when breached or missing indicates that tampering has occurred.

Why is tampering an issue?
Unfortunately, today’s world is a very scary place and we just can’t take risks that if a product has been opened – then we really can’t consume it. This can be extremely costly to manufacturers and suppliers alike who can be open to litigation if things go awry.

One of the simplest and affordable options is shrink sleeves. Shrink Sleeves – or tamper evident security seals are a plastic sleeve that is placed over the top (usually the lid) of a product, which is then shrunk using a heat gun so that it snugly fits the package. The only way to remove them is to break the seal. For other alternatives in tamper resisitant packaging, please follow this link.
