All of which is formally agreed with your suppliers and customers through the application of detailed specifications.

After the development and launch of the product, the life cycle continues, which then means change control and management of obsolete items becomes key.

This pack includes a 5 stage gate process – which ensures all development tasks are completed including generation of specifications, pack copy and artwork.

Stage-gate development process

The procedure and workbook are based on a 5 stage-gate development process; 1 – planning, 2 – feasibility, 3- innovation, 4 – process development and 5 – launch. To pass to the next stage, a gate process ensures that all the tasks are complete and approved, so nothing gets missed or forgotten.

Legal labelling checks

Another key element of development is making sure that labelling is legal in the country of sale. The roles for this also need to be clearly defined, so that all parties involved in the development process are aware of their responsibilities.

Artwork proof approval

One of the most common recalls is due to the wrong allergen information being printed on the pack. This process helps to ensure that the appropriate checks are completed when creating specifications, pack copy and then finally the artwork.
