KICKING off their own Brazilian campaign, a Hay-On-Wye pharmaceutical company has been given the go-ahead by inspectors and is looking to start exporting to South America.

Packaging Coordinators Inc passed an initial inspection and is now waiting on approval from the National Health Surveillance Agency of Brazil (ANVISA), before it can expand its operation to include shipping pharmaceuticals to Brazil.

Kay O’Hagan, PCI's quality assurance and regulatory affairs director, said: “We are extremely proud to have had such a positive audit from ANVISA.”

With Hay controlling the company’s European operations, and multiple bases in North America, extending its reach to Brazil would make it a hat-trick for PCI’s global operations.
