2023.01.05Cambodia, the Next Asian Tiger? Southeast Asia has experienced unprecedented change over the past half-century transforming itself from a poor, undeveloped, and conflict-ridden region, to one with political stability, booming economies, and some of the most highly educated and skilled workforces in the world.

2022.10.20Why Approved Samples are Worth the Investment In a recent inspection performed on beauty skincare packaging containers, our inspector noticed that the client’s labeling didn’t match up in a way that greatly affects the marketability of the final product. The client’s order was for plastic bottles that will later contain 1 fl oz / 30ml of a skincare product, to be filled in a different country. However, the bottles were all made with printed labeling for 0.9 fl ox / 27ml. This created a huge problem for the buyer because the order was already completed with over 5,000 units, thus forcing every unit to be reworked before leaving the factory.
