Schur®Star packs GMP approved medicinal cannabis in white room conditions
The concept of pre-made bags was decisive
Pre-made bags in combination with flexibility, simplicity and white room compatibility of the Schur®Star Packaging Machine convinced one of Europe’s major producers of medicinal cannabis to go for the Schur®Star Concept for packing their products. With a recently acquired GMP certification the company was on the lookout for a packing technology that could handle the delicate products, meet the requirements of white room processing and ensure safety, purity and precision.
The company - who holds cultivation licenses from the national governments of several countries - is a global leader in cannabis research, cultivation, processing and distribution and is establishing itself as one of the world’s most trusted cannabis companies. They are among the first GMP-certified medicinal cannabis producers to supply cannabis flower and extract products to tens of thousands of patients, physicians, pharmacies, hospitals, governments and researchers on five continents.
Safety, purity and precision under white room conditions
The products are packed under white room conditions on a Schur®Star 2060 C employing double bag filling and camera control, equipped with two thermal transfer Videojet printers to add vital product information and traceability coding. The production is a 100% controlled process from seed to finished pack – and packing takes place under supervision of a team specially trained for this process.
Cost-effective packaging solution in all respects
Dried cannabis flowers are available as cured and trimmed whole flowers or precise blends of ground cannabis, they are delicate and require a packaging that ensures protection against impact of light, oxygen and moisture. The Schur®Star bag construction meets these requirements and the zipper will protect the content during storage. Thanks to the high filling capacity at a minimum of material consumption, and in consideration of the low-weight, low-volume packaging material being beneficial in storage and distribution, it is a cost-effective solution in every respect.
The Schur®Star Concept is adaptable to all environments
The Schur®Star Concept consists of the Schur®Star Packaging Machine and premade Schur®Star Bags that are linked together on a unique string, ensuring a smooth, flexible and effortless packing process. Worldwide more than 500 companies pack their products in all types of environments, from white room conditions to in-field environments where fresh produce is packed – be it under hot, cold or damp conditions. The adaptability of the Schur®Star Concept to practically any environment, product, process and packing condition makes it unique.
