Our products – Our brands

60 years ago, we invented the first desiccant closure for effervescent tablets and produced and introduced it to the market using injection molding. 

With this we ensure that:

It only sparkles in the glass and not in the packaging

Of course, since then we have further developed and expanded the use and dosing of desiccant packaging for pharmaceutical products. New product series such as the AdCap® desiccant capsules and AdPack® desiccant bags round off the diverse range.

Sanner is the global market leader for effervescent tablet packaging. Our closure systems DASG and DOSG stand for the highest quality. FOG 27® is a new type of user-friendly closure that performs excellently in consumer tests. Paired with the Brilliance® tube based on IML (In-Mold-Labelling) printing technology, a state-of-the-art effervescent packaging is created.

With the bio-based packaging Sanner BioBase® we are breaking new ground and supplying the first sustainable packaging for effervescent tablets.

We also play a leading role in desiccant packaging for test strips, especially in the Asian market.


The expertise in injection molding paired with our more than 65 years of experience in the design and integration of desiccants is the ideal combination for your pharmaceutical primary packaging. Combined with our unique Sanner Atmo Guard System® you receive security when commercializing your product.



Sanner – Your expert for the integration of desiccants

As a contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO), further strengths lie in the design, development, technical implementation and large-scale production of pharmaceutical plastic packaging and medical and diagnostic products and components.
