EXPO PACK México to Bolster Safety, Security in Cosmetics Industry

Mexico is the largest exporter of cosmetics in Latin America. The Mexican cosmetics industry grew 6% in 2012

More than 20 percent of the exhibitors at EXPO PACK México 2013 (June 18–21; Centro Banamex, Mexico City) will feature solutions specifically tied to cosmetics and personal care, says Enrique Guzman, Director of PMMI Latin America and EXPO PACK México, noting the importance of these industries in the region.

“Mexico is the largest exporter of cosmetics in Latin America. The cosmetics, personal care and household goods industries grew about 6 percent in Mexico last year, and they aren’t showing any signs of slowing down,” he says.

With more than 200 of EXPO PACK México’s 1,000 exhibitors presenting innovative technologies for cosmetics and personal care manufacturing, the 2013 edition will be a must-attend event for manufacturers concerned with enhancing — or protecting — their brands.

“Mexican cosmetics manufacturers lose millions of dollars to counterfeit products annually. As a result, they’re investing in intelligent packaging, new materials, machinery, labels and safety coding,” says Guzman. “In addition to combating counterfeiting, these technologies help them to guarantee product quality, aid in distribution and differentiate their products. We’re confident they’ll find what they need at EXPO PACK México 2013.”

EXPO PACK México will take place June 18–21, 2013 at Centro Banamex in Mexico City, Mexico, with 1,000 exhibitors displaying packaging and processing technologies and materials for a wide range of industries including cosmetics, personal care, food and beverage, and pharmaceutical.
