With in-built SECURITY SEAL
IGB Tamper Evident packaging provides vital protection against shoplifting and counterfeiting, is made of plastic-free cardboard and suitable for standard packaging lines.
Spirits and wines are high-value products: the combination of value, size and easy accessibility makes them attractive targets for counterfeiting and shoplifting.
THE COST OF COUNTERFEIT WINES AND SPIRITS
The combined annual sales of spirits and wine in the EU are worth €38 billion annually and €1.3 billion (3.3%) are lost due to counterfeit products (source: EUIPO).
THE COST OF SHOPLIFTING
Shrinkage costs $123 billion globally, 77% is due to shoplifting and employee theft.
Wine and spirits are among the most stolen merchandise (source: The 2014-2015 Global Retail Theft Barometer).
PUBLIC HEALTH ISSUE
If the box is counterfeit, no reliable quality control is expected to have been performed. This can become a serious concern for public health because ingesting adulterated drinks can be dangerous. Anti-counterfeit packaging can help protect customers’ health.
PLASTIC POLLUTION & CARBON FOOTPRINT
The need to prevent counterfeiting and shoplifting pushes many companies to use protective labels. However, this involves
the use of plastic and energy- intensive packaging processes.
IGB's Tamper-Evident Bottle Box complies with the stringent EN ISO 21976:2020 standard (“Packaging – Tamper verification features for medicinal product packaging”) which requires IRREVERSIBLE tamper evident features.
THE TAMPER EVIDENT BOTTLE BOX IS THE EFFECTIVE AND SUSTAINABLE SOLUTION
Equipped with a plastic-free seal, made from cardboard, IGB’s Tamper Evident Bottle Box guarantees visible confirmation that a product has not been tampered with: when the seal is broken, a high-vis tag shows up, making it clear that the box has been opened.
IGB’s Tamper Evident Bottle Box complies with the stringent ISO 21976:2018 standard.
An intact and irreversible seal guarantees that the product is the one originally packed by the manufacturer, protecting your business and customers’ health from counterfeit products.
This is the only way to guarantee protection along the entire supply chain: from the manufacturer, to the distributor and to the consumer.
Cheap tamper evident stickers can be peeled-off and covered with new stickers: they are reversible.
The Food & Drugs Administration (FDA) regarding Tamper Evident packaging, states:
“Tape seals relying on an adhesive to bond them to the package are not capable of meeting the TRP requirements because they can be removed and reapplied with no visible evidence of entry.”
The IGB seal, instead, is part of the box and must be torn off to open the box: it is therefore IRREVERSIBLE and SAFE
A very safe packaging ensures your products are protected once on display.
A sealed box eliminates the need for expensive anti-theft systems such as bottle neck tags and the related operation costs.
A clear and secure seal allows for quick and easy checks.
