So, what is a tamper-evident packaging? In simple words, a packaging solution which clearly shows any form of tampering with the product or its packaging is known as tamper-evident.
According to U.S Food Drug Administration, “A tamper-evident package, is one having one or more indicators or barriers to entry which, if breached or missing, can reasonably be expected to provide visible evidence to consumers that tampering has occurred.”
