Extended Content Packaging

We provide best-in-class, award-winning extended or expanded content packaging solutions. From complex multi-panel cartons to multi-ply labels and extended content labels, our customers take advantage of our solutions to comply to packaging regulations, such as Health Canada’s Plain Language Labelling (PLL) directive.

Discover our extended content packaging offering, which is proven to hold significantly more product information without increasing package size or affecting filling line performance.

Multiple Options

  • Nearly 160 extended content package SKUs and 50 unique multi-panel carton designs successfully launched to market for global pharmaceutical brands
  • Multi-ply and extended content label (ECL) solutions
  • Packaging structures maintain the same retail shelf footprint with up to 55% added surface area for more copy and minimized impact to retail planograms
  • Services include full folding carton and pressure sensitive label production through our Cartons & Labels business unit, as well as label application and cartoning through our Packaging Services business unit where required

Superior Materials

Unlike solutions using fugitive glue for folding carton panels, our proven adhesive and coating combinations are:

  • Tested for “resealability” – when panels are opened, they will reseal and remain sealed as per client-defined critical-to-quality parameters
  • Tested for zero fibre tear – when panels are opened no elements of the carton surface will tear off with adhesive, keeping copy intact

Seamless Packaging Line Integration

  • Multi-panel cartons are proven to stay sealed on packaging filling lines over 90% of the time
  • Multi-panel cartons will not reduce line speed, maintaining efficiency

Integrated Packaging Services

In addition to our extended content packaging solutions, we offer multi-level primary packaging services to complete your project. With a range of equipment and duplicate assets, we can fast-track changes and flex our capacity across a variety packaging formats – all within an FDA and Health Canada-registered facility.

Extended Content Packaging to Comply With Health Canada’s Plain Language Labelling Regulations

In 2014, Health Canada introduced Plain Language Labelling (PLL) Regulations to improve the safe use of non-prescription drug products and reduce preventable harm from medication errors by making drug labels and packages easier to read and understand.

These packaging regulations meant significant impacts to packaging format, content and design for over-the-counter drugs sold in Canada, with compliant formats required in 2021. Similar regulations for nutraceutical product packaging have been finalized with compliance requirements starting in 2025.

As a leader in developing packaging compliant with these standards, Jones has proven solutions and unparalleled experience helping global pharmaceutical customers navigate the packaging revision process — from start to finish.
