We continued to expand our work with and support procurement from social enterprises, which are businesses that have specific social objectives that serve its primary purpose. We primarily focus on social enterprises that support economic inclusion and job creation for people with diverse abilities, including mental health conditions. For example, Altra Schaffhausen is a Swiss social enterprise founded in 1965, that employs people with various kinds of disabilities. Altra Schaffhausen provides contract packaging services for our Innovative Medicine products, employing 40 people with disabilities who support the J&J business.

The goal of Altra in Schaffhausen is to integrate people with physical or mental disabilities into work and society by offering protected employment and housing. J&J in Schaffhausen has been working with Altra for almost 20 years in the secondary packaging of pharmaceutical products.”
