ABIHPEC recognizes 33 suppliers of packaging, fragrances, ingredients and services

Last week in São Paulo, the Brazilian Association of the Personal Hygiene, Perfumery and Cosmetics Industry (ABIHPEC) has recognized 33 companies participating in its 9th Supplier Qualification Program. On this occasion, Bandeirante Brazmo, a specialist of chemical actives, was recognized as the Supplier of the Year.

This annual program is an initiative of ABIHPEC, with the support of consulting firm Embala Ideias, with the aim to recognize the best practices among suppliers of packaging, fragrances, ingredients and services. The evaluation is based on a qualitative survey conducted with a panel of ABIHPEC member companies and buyers of the goods and services provided by the competing suppliers.

In the packaging category the awarded companies were: Adhespack, Box Print, Grossplast, Kingraf, Qualipac, Sigmaplasth e Wheaton.

In the services category winning companies were: Allergisa, Ativa Logística, Avisa and Medcin.

According to João Carlos Basilio, President of ABIHPEC, Brazil has coped with a year of political and economic turmoil, but the cosmetics, toiletries and fragrances sector remains one of the most resilient. "Our industry has enormous capacity to recover and it’s no wonder we have so many qualified suppliers this year," he said.

The companies that participated in the evaluation were: Avon, Bonique, Belliz, Bio Extratus, Bionat, C&R, CCD Cosmética, Charm Way, Cless, Coferly, Condor, D’Agua Natural, Davene, De Sírius, Soft Hair, Exactaderme, Folha Nativa, Grupo Boticário, Hair Shine, Hinode, Jequiti, Johnson&Johnson, Leclair, Leite de Rosas, Mohogany, Mundial, MZ3, Natura, Payot, Phisalia, Sther, Sweet Hair, Tech-Science, Valmari, Yamá and Yamamura.

"The growth of the 2016 Supplier Qualification Program exceeded our expectations, with the number of participating companies rising by 32% compared to the previous year. In 2017 we want to further expand this scenario," said João Carlos Basilio.
